    - Opera Mini users: 31.1 million in March 2012, vs. 13.6m in March 2011, up 129%

    You mean Opera Mobile right?

      I was also confused by this, their report says Mini.

      Edited to Mobile

        Combined IMHO – ‘In March 2012 Opera recorded a year-on-year surge of over 500% in the number of Opera Mobile/Mine users on Android to three million.’

        No, it really is Mini.

        Mini basically comes in two flavor. One that you download, for example from Google Play or opera.com. The other is the mobile operator branded version, that usually comes pre-installed. Opera want to shift the user-balance toward the latter with many contracts across the globe (operator branded Mini, usually with some kind of cheap net packages, Opera’s news channel is full of these announcements) because obviously it pays more. Currently the vast majority got his Mini directly, but as these numbers suggest, Opera is quite successful in transforming them to be users of a mobile operator branded Mini.

          OK, I missed the point in my last post… So these numbers mean the operator-branded(!) Mini users, who are still minority compared to all Mini users, but quickly catching up.

    Happy to see my favorite browser is doing great. :-)

    Question: When we see browsers usage stats, and we always see Opera at the bottom (with less than 2%), does it include mobile browsers usage? Because I see Opera Mini/Mobile stats growing each month, but it doesn’t seem to affect those statistics.

    • Hiram

      No.

      • isra

        Thanks

    • Armin

      Only with Safari I believe.

        Correct and probably Chrome Android too

      Several factors.

      Many big sites are American, Opera’s smalled region.
      Mobile isn’t included, Opera’s strongest sector
      Many big sites are so broken, Opera users are faking user agents to make them look like Firefox.

      For example, I have given up trying to get Amazon to fix their seller site, or simply stop sniffing for Opera and delivering old broken content, and just give me working Firefox code (which works just fine in Opera too).

    I love Opera.  It makes me happy to know that it is doing well financially.

  • Max Renn

    Go Opera. It’s my default desktop browser and the one I use on my mobile. Great software!
