More than a year after hitting iOS, Opera is finally bringing its innovative video compression feature to its Android browser, Opera Mini. You'll have to enable "video boost" manually in the browser's "high savings mode," but once you do your videos will load much faster than before. Of course, that also means you'll lose quite a bit of quality, which could be noticeable on newer high-resolution Android screens. But if you live in an area with crummy bandwidth, or just travel a lot, you'll probably get plenty of mileage out of video boost. (The browser will even count the amount of videos it's optimized for you.)
