If Opera Mobile is not exactly your cup of tea then there is another option to consider: Opera Mini.
Just recently, Norwegian browser maker has released a small update, which aims to improve the overall user experience. So what’s new? The following build improves NFC support, connection stability as well as offers various stabilization fixes and page layout enhancements. Grab it now.
Opera Mini 7.5.1 for Android
Hangs the latter.
Just recently, Opera users started reporting an issue, which caused their browser to become unstable while browsing SkyDrive photos. Now, according to Opera’s Hallvord R. M. Steen, the root cause is Microsoft itself.
As stated in the blog post, SkyDrive suffers from a bug, which sends two million NULL characters during every browsing session that results in a 100% CPU usage.
Makes you want more.
Interestingly enough, it has some neat ideas, such as: dynamically updated live tiles (see video below for a cheesy demo) with news from Opera’s portal, speed dial thumbnbails that match those of WP8 start screen and more.
The stablest Opera build yet.
After a total of 4 release candidate builds, Norwegian browser maker has just released the final build of the Opera 12.10.
So how exactly will it improve your experience? Thanks to features like pre-fetched DNS (so domain name system look up is performed on mouse over) and SPDY (check preliminary benchmark results here), users should see a nice performance increase, especially when browsing Gmail, Twitter and other, SPDY enabled sites.
Hey, it’s that time of the month again as we kick off the week with the new data from the NetApplications.
Starting with the Internet Explorer, it looks like Microsoft’s market share is slowly edging higher, up from 53.63% to 54.13 (0.5 point increase).
Join us as we take a look at the latest market share numbers from October.
It looks like the new iPhone and continuous iPad sales did not have a huge impact on the market. In fact, the latest data shows that Safari lost 3.7 points of its share, down from 64.01% to 60.31%.
With the recent release of IOS 6, Opera Software has announced the availability of the new update for its Opera Mini web browser for both iPhone and iPad.
So what can you expect from this build? In addition to various bug fixes and performance improvements, the following release also includes a support for IOS 4.2 as well as integration with IOS 6 Facebook framework.
That’s pretty much it.
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?
