The new update also adds support for QR code reader and generator for Opera Mini. Uribe says that with a QR code users can do a quick scan with their phone's camera as often typing long URLs can get rather frustrating. The company also says that Opera Mini now offers improved stability and speed in the download manager.

We've made loads of improvements and tweaks lately to improve the stability and speed of downloads," adds Uribe.
