Opera’s Q3 2014 financial results are in.
If you are wondering how exactly is Opera Desktop doing after ditching the old rendering engine and having some time to “make the things right” then we have some pretty bleak news.
According to the latest report, the monthly desktop users figure has shown absolutely no growth in the last 5 quarters, in addition to that, the revenue has been declining quarter over quarter (while 3Q13 vs. 3Q14 show identical income).
And other features.
If more social features is what you’ve been waiting for then smile because this is exactly what you will get with the latest Opera 26 Beta build. Thanks to a new share icon, you can now share your awesome sites with all kinds of people, even if they don’t use Opera.
However, that’s not the only new thing. There is also a way to import bookmarks and settings from other web browsers (Opera 12.x included, although for some reason it did not work and gave an error). Also, a built in print preview and better OS X Yosemite integration!
If you’ve just bought the recently released iPhone 6 and iPhone 6+ then today is your lucky day as Norwegian browser maker has just released a new Opera Coast update, which now supports both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6+. Also, iOS 8 users will now be able to check the latest news in the notification center if you decide to use the Opera Coast widget.
What about other Apple device users and/or improvements?
The web app icons have been redesigned to give you a more beautiful look and feel. In addition to that, you can now open Opera Coast links from another web browser and even share pages to other apps.
Including all EU states.
Remember Opera Max, the data compression product for Android that was introduced back in early 2014 and the one that was never heard of again?
Well, good news! The guys at Opera Software have decided to roll out Opera Max to even more countries and is now available in the following:
September, 2014 Desktop Market Share: Google Chrome – Up; Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera – Down
It’s that time of the month again when we take a look at the desktop market share numbers for the month of September.
Kicking things off with Internet Explorer, we’ve seen a small (0.09 point) decrease, from 58.46% to 58.37%
September, 2014 Mobile Market Share: Google Chrome, Android Browser – Up; Safari, Opera Mini, Internet Explorer – Down
Another month, another report.
As always, we start with Apple’s Safari, which (after a small bump) continues its downtrend, this time its market share has decreased by 0.44 point, from 45.07% to 44.63%.
Samsung Gear S is its name.
Opera Mini, a web browser that is available on a variety of different platforms (including TVs and gaming console(s)) has now conquered another market: smartwatches.
Announced today for the Tizen based Samsung Gear S, Opera Mini 7.5 includes the features that you expect: data savings, Speed Dial, Smart Pages and more.
With the recent Opera Developer Preview update, Norwegian browser maker has included a neat new feature, which allows you to share your bookmarks with your family or friends. However, unlike regular bookmark sharing, this feature gives you an option to share the whole folder, which you might find useful in certain situations.
However, before updating, keep in mind that there are a couple of known bugs including scrolling performances issues inside internal pages.
With bookmarks and more.
Opera Beta, formerly known as Opera Next, has been updated to the version 25 and it finally brings one of the most requested features: bookmarks, and they will be displayed in a speed dial like fashion (thumbnails instead of text).
In addition to that, there’s a new start page, integrated PDF viewer, web notifications, support for H.264 and MP3 and lastly, a Linux build too!
Opera 25 Beta
Good news! Opera has released the Beta version of Opera Mini for the Windows Phone. However, hours after the 0.9 version hit the store (which was sluggish and with the user interface from the Windows Mobile 6.5), Norwegian browser maker made some tweaks and pushed 0.9.0.1. The bad news? It won’t open for quite a few people and is more unstable than the original build.
Ignoring a pretty bad port (yes, it’s Beta although we’d call it Alpha), we are not sure about the version number either, since in the “About” page it says version 7.6.8 yet in the store this number is completely different.
