Brings data usage reports and other goodies.
Opera Software, the Norwegian browser maker, has recently released an update for both Opera Mini and Opera Mobile web browsers.
According to the company report, Android only updates now include a “Data Usage” view, which (when Opera Turbo, a web page compression technology, is enabled) allows users to see their bandwidth savings.
The latest additions to Nokia’s phone portfolio, the C2-05 and the X2-05, come with a new browser that uses Nokia’s own compression technology to deliver content faster, the company said in a blog post on Tuesday.
Says Internet Explorer is superior.
Here comes another marketing round from Microsoft, as it has launched a YourBrowserMatters.org web site, designed to inform everyday consumer (who rarely visits such pages anyway) about the dangers of the Internet.
Basically, it goes like this:
According to the audited financial statement (download PDF) released Monday, total revenues for 2010 were $121.1 million, up 18.1% from 2009′s $104.3 million.
Revenue growth last year was just over half that of the 34% increase Mozilla touted for 2009. This was the second annual report in a row that Mozilla did not disclose the individual amounts it received from its search partners.
Instead, in a FAQ tied to the report, Mozilla repeated nearly word for word a line it used last year: “The majority of Mozilla’s revenue continues to be generated from the search functionality included in our Mozilla’s Firefox product through all major search partners including Google, Bing, Yahoo, Yandex, Amazon, eBay and others.”
During my Chinese web browser “Maxthon 3.1 Beta”, review (which is yet to come), I saw an innocent looking button, which suggested me to download some themes, little did I know that this would turn into a nightmare…
The story goes like this… I click on the button to check some themes and strange thing happens: it redirects me to a forum. No problem, I thought, it’s just a Beta, maybe there are no official skins yet.
With the release of Opera 12, users can now enjoy search suggestions. However, if you are one of those people (myself included) who are not particularly happy about this change, here is a simple solution to disable already mentioned functionality:
- Type opera:config#UserPrefs|ShowSearchesInAddressfieldAutocompletion in the address bar.
- Uncheck the “Show Searches In Addressfield Autocompletion” checkbox.
- Reward yourself with a cookie, job well done.
