Not pleased with the user growth.
During yesterday’s Q&A with the investors, Opera’s management has shared some details about its prospects going forward and how will it affect future revenue.
According to the keynote, they are not pleased with the desktop growth and although Opera is keeping up in the key markets like Russia, there is no excitement anywhere else.
Did Opera just overwrote all your bookmarks? Not all is lost, yet.
Today, due to my mistake and a possible bug in the latest build of the Opera 12.2 (Build: 1627), I have lost all my bookmarks, ranging from 2004 till this day.
Now, although I had a backup, the recently changed location of the Opera bookmarks file (I’ve moved it to another drive), it did not include the data. Needless to say, I wasn’t very happy.
How did this happen?
Brings features from the Opera 12.1 Desktop.
Today is a good day for all the Android users out there as Norwegian software maker has just released an updated version of its Opera Mobile web browser.
Tagged as version 12.1, the following build introduces quite a few new features, including:
September, 2012 Desktop Market Share: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera – Up; Google Chrome – Down
After publishing the market share report for the mobile web browsers, it’s time to reveal a real thing: desktop.
As we are weeks before the launch of the Windows 8, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer managed to increase its market share by 0.03 point, up from 53.60% to 53.63%.
New month, new report.
After continuously gaining market share for quite some time, Apple’s Safari took a small dip and is now sitting at the 64.01% market share, down from 66.43% to 64.01% (2.42 point decrease).
This is it, after dozens of snapshots and weeks of waiting, the very first beta build of the Opera 12.10 web browser is here.
So what exactly can you expect from the following release? Quite a few changes, actually but most importantly, it promises to improve the overall web sites compatibility thanks to the support of the CSS vendor prefixes, such as: -webkit-background-size, -webkit-transform, etc.
If SDK supports it.
RoboHornet Alpha 1.
Just yesterday, Google has launched an open source benchmark tool called RoboHornet, which according to the search giant itself, “encompasses all aspects of browser performance and everything that matters to web developers, like performance of layout and localStorage”.
Now, before you get all cranky and claim that it’s just another useless test to demonstrate Chrome’s superiority, you might want to check the results first.
Now with “Smart Page”.
With today’s release of the Opera Mini 7.5 for Android, Norwegian browser maker has introduced a new feature, which will parse data from your Internet activity and suggest content (such as news and friend activity) that is relevant to your interests.
In addition to that, the following build brings various stability improvements that will likely improve your web experience.
Well, here is an unexpected move. If you were hoping to see 12.50 Final later this year, prepare to see a new branch first. Why? It looks like the Norwegian browser maker has renamed its internal version of the Opera 12.50 web browser and released it as Opera 12.10 Beta RC.
Unfortunately, unlike their previous releases, the following build is pretty much unusable. With HWA enabled, Opera 12.10 will crash when loading Facebook, the scaling is completely broken, making it annoying to zoom in/out of various web pages and images. In addition to that, WordPress “Post New” HTML section is completely broken with lots of annoyances and crashes when using “Visual” view.
