Thanks to asfa, Ichann and Reddit for the tip.
Recently, Opera Software has released an update for its Twitter widget called “Twiget”. New version introduces quite a few UI changes, new features (including: bit.ly integration) and bug fixes.
One of the cool things about Opera’s widgets is the fact that you can simply run them outside your browser window, just like any other app.
Thanks to Twitter’s new authorization API, signing in is as easy as 1, 2, 3: launch widget, paste PIN from a newly opened web browser window and that’s pretty much it.
After a couple of requests, I have finally decided to launch a page that is ask.favbrowser.com
What is it all about?
Essentially, it is a web browser questions and answers site. Therefore, as the content starts kicking in, ask.favbrowser.com will serve as a good knowledge base for web browser related issues.
Also, you can earn points for asking and answering questions.
Can you redeem points for any cool prizes?
Not yet, but stay tunned, there will certainly be a couple of them in the near future.

• The History of Internet Explorer
As Microsoft celebrates the 15th birthday of Internet Explorer, lets dive into the past and see how it all started…
There comes a time when browser developers decide to implement a specific feature or do things in certain way that may cripple user experience.
So, lets dig into this mess and find out, what these things actually are.
Internet Explorer: Connecting
Turns out, such simple task as opening new tab, can also become a headache. If you’ve been using Internet Explorer 7/8, then infamous “Connecting…” message is already wired into your brain.
As you might know, Opera 10.60 brings support for search suggestions. However, it currently works for Bing and Wikipedia only.
Fortunately, you can now enable such suggestions for Google as well. Here is how:
1. Open search.ini file from your profile directory (if you have issues finding such file, type opera:about for some file paths).
With FoxToPhone extension, Firefox users can enjoy the very same functionality. Basically, you can now send all kind of data, such as: web links, images, selected text, telephone numbers and more from Firefox to Android 2.2.
