Opera Mini Secret Codes and Hidden Settings

Most of us (if not all) knows that opera Mini has special commands that you enter in the address bar like a URL but without the http://www or www and display some hidden characters. Many of them return information that’s probably only of interest to Opera’s developers but a couple are actually very useful.

My favorite of all is config: which opens Opera Mini’s Power User Settings page where you can tweak many browser settings like the timeout and whether the browser should make phone numbers clickable. See my post on “POWER USER” HIDDEN MENU ON OPERA-MINI for more info.

Web developers will appreciate server:source which displays the source code of a current page…

Below are list of hidden Opera Mini commands that I’ve discovered. It was tested in Opera Mini 4.3, 5.1 and 6 and I believe they should work in all Opera Mini versions…

config: – Open the the Power User Settings menu

server:source – Display the current page’s source code

debug: – Displays a page listing many Opera mini server and client properties. The “Host:” field tells you which Opera Mini server you are currently connected to.

opera:cache – displays the size and URL of cached pages and images

about: – displays information about the Opera Mini server and device

 

The following commands duplicate Opera Mini menu and show information for third party software used in the browser

 

feed:list – Go to the Feeds page

o:Z – goes to your bookmarks (Opera Mini 4.n only)

opera:about – Displays copyright and license information for third party software used in the browser

 

server:reset – clears all cookies

o:A – goes to the start page (Opera Mini 4.n only)

server:refresh – refreshes the current page

I feel that there are more hidden commands. If you’ve discovered others that are currently working, please lets all know in the comment area.
