Makes browsing less annoying.
Good news for all you Opera users out there, Norwegian browser maker has recently released a new version of Opera for Android, which brings some useful fixes. Oh, and there is one new feature too, allowing you to delete an entry in history view by long pressing on an item.
Here’s a full list:
Now here’s an interesting way to prioritize web browser features.
Despite the fact that Opera still lacks some of the essential features, it looks like (some of the) guys behind it have decided to go the other way and work on a new installer instead.
Currently available for Windows users only, what it does is pull the latest available build from the Opera servers. Also, in case of a network failure or other connection related problems, the installer will keep on trying to download the most recent version.

Happy New Year!
Kicking things of, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer saw its first decline in a long time, down from 58.36% to 57.91% (0.45 point decrease).
If you live in the US, have an Android phone and want to save more data then you are up for a new and pretty awesome app by Opera called Opera Max.
What is Opera Max?
Think of it as Opera Turbo (data compression service) v2, which now not only compresses browser but also any other data requests that are sent throughout your phone. Still doesn’t make any sense? Just take a look at the picture and everything should become pretty clear:
No Linux version yet.
When build numbers mean very little these days, here comes the 20th version of Opera web browser and thankfully, it does bring some goodies, at least for the enthusiast market.
So what exactly has changed? First in the list is ability to drag tabs into the bookmarks bar, as well as improved drag and drop between Speed Dial and Bookmarks Bar. As far as other changes, you can expect some theme loading performance improvements and a bug fix that caused blurry scaled stash screenshots.
Now here’s something for all the enthusiastic Opera users out there. Norwegian browser maker has just published the “Next” build of Opera 19, which gives a glimpse on what to expect from the final version.
So what’s new and different? First in the list is “Bookmarks Bar”, followed by custom themes but most importantly, guys at Opera have added a couple of neat features that will be appreciated by the power users:
November, 2013 Mobile Market Share: Android Browser, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer – Up; Safari, Opera Mini – Down
Another month, another report.
Starting with Safari, Apple’s web browser has seen a small dip in its numbers, from 55.88% to 55.61% (0.27 point decrease).
Now, it looks like Chrome 31 and Opera 18 are joining the fun as they too can now run Epic Games created tech demo called Epic Citadel. Who’s next, IE or Safari?
The wait is over.
If the developer preview of Opera 19 is not something you are interested in then worry no more as Norwegian software Company has just released the final version of Opera 18.
So what kind of goodies can you expect from this build?
First of all, you can now drag tabs between windows or just drag them out and create new ones. Second of all, by right clicking on a search field and selecting the “Create Search Engine” option, you can now add new search engines and assign desired keywords.
Just be careful about your data.
Today, Opera has released the very first developer build of Opera 19, which finally includes one of the widely requested features: data sync. There are two things you need to know first though:
1) Data sync must be enabled via flags: opera://flags/#sync
2) Keep a local backup of all your data, it’s an experimental feature after all
