Opera Max 3.0 has added a new little cards displaying WiFi and mobile data usage on all your apps, making it massively easier to block the apps that are draining your resources. Plus the app itself will advise you on how to reduce data consumption, which is always helpful. Something similar happens with the new feature designed just for Facebook: you’ll save up to 50% on data if you use the webapp version built into Opera Max.

This new version of Opera Max also lets you browse more securely thanks to added layers of connection encryption and alerts of possible threats, which is basic when you’re browse on unsecured public WiFi networks.
