I tried logging into meta.discourse last night using Opera mini and I had a couple of problems. First of all, trying to log in with Google gave a 403 error. When I then tried to use my username/email, it said I was using wrong credentials. The thing is, I tried to input those same credentials on Chrome Mobile and on my laptop and I was signed it.
We only support the default browsers on iOS and Android (Safari and Chrome). Opera mini is not tested, and we cannot guarantee support. See our website for details.
Thanks. It turns out that at least one other site has the Google OAuth issue.
Frankly reading that, I’d be amazed if Discourse works at all in Opera Mini.
I usually don’t expect full functionality when I’m using opera mini. It doesn’t display some sites (eg BuzzFeed) at all. On others (well so far I’ve only noticed this on sport-english.com) it displays only a 1/4 of the pages’ width.
Opera Mini is more or less my default browser on mobile, mostly because it is usually faster and has saves data, but because of that I never expect full functionality from it. I only raised the issue because oauth usually works when I’m using it.
Thanks for the article.
(Edit to correct grammar)
I’ve tested and found the Following Browsers on Android that work Absolutely Fine:
Chrome (and most of Chrome/Web View Based Browsers e.g. Gello, Jelly, Pyrope)
Samsung Internet (Beta)
Apart from these three, almost every other Browser has some or the other issue.
