    Opera Renews Its Deal With Google

    By | October 31, 2007 | 0 Comments

    Opera, Google DealGoogle is default search engine integrated to the Opera desktop browser and will stay there for at least 2 years (that’s then this deal expires) or more.

    That means profit for both, Google and Opera.

    Google pays ~80% (77% in Q3) of each click value to its publishers. Not really sure about Opera, but that should be more than 80% I guess.

    Opera 9.5 Beta Released

    By | October 26, 2007 | 0 Comments

    Opera 9.5 BetaIt’s here, first Opera 9.5 Beta release. It’s been a long way for it to reach this, beta stage, hundreds of bug fixes, various improvements and lots of testing. You can find all the changes here:

    Changelog for Windows
    Changelog for Mac
    Changelog for UNIX

    I kinda like this quote from their web page:

    the Opera Web browser is over 30% faster than IE, and faster and more secure than Firefox. Recent benchmarks show that Opera even exceeds the speed of Firefox with multiple tabs opened. Opera delivers robust security and a far-richer feature set than any other Web browser and it’s free.

    Similar to Safari’s “browsers comparison”, just bit more sophisticated.

    Opera Mini Clone – TeaShark

    By | October 23, 2007

    When you see something new in the web browsers world it always excites you, right? Not this time. TeaShark (alpha) is a mobile web browser and as they say “TeaShark is a new way to use the web when mobile.” It might sound good but it isn’t, it’s a clone. Just take a look at this demonstration.

    TeaShark

    TeaShark offers few new features although, it’s a smart address entry.

    TeaShark Smart Entry

    The engine remembers common patterns – popular sites, URLs – and the addresses you have visited*, incrementally filling the address bar as you type.

    Find text on the page, del.icio.us bookmarks import, RSS reader and… Ad blocking (sounds cool).

    Now I am not sure if they’ve just got some leaked Opera Mini 4 Pre-Beta 3 source or did that on their own, will see I guess…

    Is Your Opera “Crashing” A Lot?

    By | October 18, 2007 | 63 Comments

    Opera Crashing ClosingWhen I say “Crashing” I mean that it just closes without any errors or notifications. Do you experience this very often and blame Opera for some kind of “bug” which causes it to crash all the time?

    In fact, one of the reasons why Opera just closing could be lack of the free HDD space. If you have only like 50 MB of free space or even less you’ve just found a reason for that.

    Solution? It’s time to clean your hard drive.
