Opera Browser, Iphone Edition

By | January 10, 2008 | 27 Comments

Opera Browser, Iphone EditionWith the recent Opera 9.5 SDK for devices release and upcomming iPhone SDK, does that makes it possible?

Check “Opera Browser Coming To The iPhone” video and you decide.

Did he just said “Yes!”? No, that was just the end of conversation (or do they just want you to think so?). Not in the near future. I bet that we will see more information regarding Opera for iPhone in the upcoming months. And who knows, maybe at the end of the year, you will be reading FavBrowser.com on your iPhone using Opera ;-) Continue Reading

Spreading Opera Mini 4 (Video)

By | December 18, 2007 | 0 Comments

Opera Mini VideoIt was about time for the second video (which is promoting Opera Mini). Last time it was Opera Mini vs. iPhone (see here) and now something similar to “commercial”, although bit too long as a “real commercial” which would be on TV or so. Video itself is nicely made, great idea but nothing catchy. I am not sure yet, but I think that I’ve seen something really similar to this video a while ago. Also was wondering if RIM (Research in Motion) made any impact there, as all I can see is BlackBerry?

    2007 November Browsers Market Share Results

    By | December 13, 2007 | 2 Comments

    2007 November Browsers Market Share ResultsBit late, but we have to do that anyway, November web browsers market share (see October stats here).

    As for November, Internet Explorer continues to lose its market share, this time it felt from 78.36% to 77.35% (1.01% decrease). Well… Still a leader.

    Not a big surprise, Firefox hits 15% and even reaches a total of 16.01%, that’s a nice gain, from 14.97% to 16.01% (1.04% increase).

    Safari lost some market share on October; however, they’ve got a nice increase this month, from 5.09% to 5.14% (0.05% increase).

    According to HitsLinks, Opera increased its market share as well. This time by 0.07%, and moved from 0.58% to 0.65%. However, they had almost 1% last month. Something is wrong with their data I guess. Oh well…

    Bad days for Netscape, it continues to lose its market share, this time Netscape market share felt from 0.66% to 0.60% (0.06% decrease).

    No idea why, but HitsLink shows wrong data at this moment, says 0.03% market share for Opera Mini, while it should be 0.66% or so…

    Here’s a graph of current browsers market share. Thanks to HitsLink.

    Opera Tips and Tricks

    By | December 1, 2007 | 2 Comments

    The first one I’ve accidentally found by cleaning up my mouse buttons while Opera web browser was launched.

    Hold right mouse click and scroll the mouse wheel. You should see all the tabs listed now.

    And the second one was randomly found some time ago, very useful feature. Mark some text and click right mouse button. Menu should appear with some options. I use “Translate” function from time to time. That’s a great feature as I don’t have to open any “Translate” tools, Opera does that for me.
