New Delhi: A Good news for all the opera users in India, The Company upgraded its mini browser on January 26, adding various languages and new features to it. The major of the changes is the support feature to 13 new languages and a new QR code reader. The download manager is also improvised.

The Opera Mini browser now supports 90 languages globally. Supporting Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Kashmiri, Malayalam, Marathi, Oriya, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu along with English, in India.

Sunil Kamath, vice president (South Asia & Southeast Asia) at Opera Software said, “In India, more than 70% of the population does not use English as their primary language. Opera web browsers have always supported reading content in multiple languages. We believe the addition of 13 Indian languages to Opera Mini’s UI will further help lower barriers for people to come online for the first time”.

Earlier the UI language was set according to the language of the Android OS. Now with the new version of opera mini, users can choose from the list of 90 installed languages. Commonly used languages of a person’s country will be shown on the top of the language list in the settings menu. Users will also be given the option to select a language initially they update the version of the browser.

Claiming opera to be more efficient and lightweight as compared to the full browsers, it is used by over 100 million Android users in emerging markets like India.

“We are continuing our efforts to bring the internet to as many people as possible, not only by making it possible to access the internet on low-bandwidth networks with our compression technology but also by making sure that our browser is easy for anyone to use and understand,” said Christian Uribe, product manager for Opera Mini.

The new browser is incorporated with a QR-code reader and generator and an improved download manager.

“We’ve also included a QR code generator (in Mini browser), so if you want to share a link with a friend nearby, you can create a QR code to any page yourself,” said Uribe. “(For download manager) we’ve made loads of improvements and tweaks lately to improve the stability and speed of downloads,”it added.(Inputs from agencies)(image-opera)

A New Tool May Aid Patients To Detect Urine Blockage

Surgeons are developing a new smartphone-based tool that can detect urethral or urine blockage, potentially making it easier for patients to test themselves for the condition from the comfort of their own homes.

Surgeons are developing a new smartphone-based tool that can detect urethral or urine blockage, potentially making it easier for patients to test themselves for the condition from the comfort of their own homes.

The novel technique could take high-speed photography which could capture subtle differences between a normal steady stream of liquid and a stream of liquid with an obstruction.

Urethral strictures are a slowing or blocking of the natural flow of urine due to an injury or infection. It is normally diagnosed by uroflowmetry, a test administered at a physician’s office.

“The problem is that patient follow-up after we treat this condition is very poor,” said Matthew Gretzer, Associate Professor at the University of Arizona in the US.

“But we need patients to come back to our clinic for a uroflow test to determine if the obstruction is still present,” he added.

In order to test Gretzer’s hypothesis on high-speed photography, the team created a model of a urethral structure using tubing hooked to a saline bag that could drain through.

Saline fluid was passed through the tubing with and without blockages, created using 3D printed strictures, placed within the tubing. High-speed photography captured both the regular and blocked stream of liquid exiting the tube.

Gretzer contended that photos can be a medium to diagnose blockages and he hopes that patients could send him these images to analyse and make the diagnosis. He plans to create a mobile app which can be downloaded by the patients.

“All patients would need to do is take high-speed images of their urine flow using a strobe light,” Gretzer said.

“Strobe light apps are readily available right now for people to use on their phones”.

According to the researchers, as fluid exits an opening, a natural breakpoint occurs where the liquid stream forms droplets, but with obstructions in place, it changes.

The results showed that by analysing photos, they could measure the length to this point of droplet formation. This length then directly related to the presence of an obstruction in the tube. (IANS)
