How did your favorite web browser perform? Let’s find out.
Happy New Year!
It’s that time of the month again when we look at the market share results for the last month. How your favorite browser did finish the 2011 race? Let’s find out.
Already broken through the 50% barrier, Internet Explorer share continues the downtrend, this time it has decreased by 1.19 point, from 48.95% to 47.76%.

Christmas are coming early for Opera fans as for the first time ever, there is a 64 bit version of Opera 12 web browser available for download.
Now, before you start screaming like a little girl, keep in mind that this is a very early build, which can be downloaded from Opera Labs only, in both 32 and 64 bit flavors.
It’s always important to backup your data, especially when it comes to your web browser. Thankfully, there are a couple of tools to do that, from cloud based servers to local ones. Here’s how you can backup Opera to your USB Flash drive or just a regular HDD:
- Download FavBackup
- Menu: Backup > Opera
Here comes an early Christmas present for all the Opera users, as Norwegian browser maker has just released the final version of Opera 11.60 for you to download.
What’s new, you may ask? While it adds additional web standards support and fixes few bugs here and there, the most noticeable change in Opera 11.60 is a new mail reader, which is significantly improved when compared to previous versions of Opera.
With just one month left before the end of 2011, it’s time to check the latest stats for the browsers market share.
Good news, we have just released a new version of FavBackup for you to play with. No major changes, just additional web browser versions support.
