    The thing about opera mini and why it is popular is that you can disable images, go back or forward without reloading every page.

    I'm using internet explorer and it won't remember login details, it will always reload a page when I go back and most importantly, it can't disable images.

    You have to consider people like us who cannot find wifi and do not have the luxury of purchasing expensive data plans.

    What I would look for in a browser is:
    Ability to save login details for sites like facebook and gmail
    Ability to change font size independent of phone font settings
    Disable images for faster and cheaper browsing. Disabling images can save me 80% of my data charges. In Kenya we purchase data bundles of fixed amounts. We don't have unlimited data options and wifi can only be found in a few cafes in major towns. Obviously not at home or most places we work and go to
    Multiple tabs
    Go back without reloading pages (UC browser can do this)

    If IE comes with these features in WP 8.1, then I will have no complaint

    You'd do better to ask the people at Opera for potential release dates (if any exist).

    Welll, Opera has no plans for WP Yet. While in the meantime, Y'all can try Nokia's Xpress. It's similar to Opera mini. (It compress web pages to reduce data cost etc.) but there are few bugs though....

    Opera has no plans as far as I know.

    In 8.1 IE syncs passwords, saves them and has some more Data Sense tools? At least an auto option.

    However, I would think the closest to be Nokia Xpress. It's a server based web browser, and I think its worth a shot.

    Nokia express is no longer available. It was really buggy and slow last time I installed it. So bad I uninstalled it the same day, and hadn't thought about it again until I read this thread.

    I found that when using the mobile Facebook website, it accused me of constantly spam liking posts after one tap, and warned me I was doing so.

    Stop being judgemental. We all have the right to chose what OS and what Search engine we want to use. Saying someone to 'go Android' is as retarded as it gets.

    Thanks.

    Not sure if you're joking or not... But windows certainly does not revolve around Bing. And FYI, he bought a Windows Phone, not a device running windows
