Opera Develops A NEW Android App Called “News and Search”

Have not had a chance to play with this yet; but Opera has released a NEW Android App in the Google Play Store called “News and Search“. I am big into the news aggregator (feed) apps and will be definitely checking this out.

ADDENDUM (6/9/16) – Ok, had some time to install and play around with Opera’s News and Search. At this point, is going to be a keeper on my phone (and tablet). In summary, it is a news aggregator (that you can customize channels to meet your interests) that is built on top of a flavor of the Opera browser designed for the dual purpose of setting up channels (of your interests) and for surfing the internet (as you would with any browser). It took me a bit of time to navigate around; but, once I learned, I really like where all of the controls are located. Very impressive at this point…

Browse hot topics, trending & breaking news per category and even connect your Twitter account to get an overview of all the news stories shared by your friends’ networks. Stories you want to keep or share can easily be added to the built-in reading list.

Opera First Major Browser To Include A Dedicated Power Saving Mode

Through the Opera Browser Developer Channel you can try the developer’s version that has a dedicated power saving mode that is engineered to extend your laptop battery life up to 50%.  In comparison to some of the other browsers (such as Google Chrome) this can mean several more hours of internet browsing time before you need to recharge your laptop.

Here is how to turn this feature “on”:

It’s easy to use the the new power saving mode. Once the laptop’s power cable is unplugged, the battery icon will appear next to the search and address field in the Opera browser. Click the battery icon to activate the power saving mode and flip on the switch.

You can learn more about this at Opera Blogs

Maxthon Cloud Browser for Windows

We all are familiar with web browsers, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and Safari; however, much is not said about Maxthon. Currently, I have Maxthon loaded on my Android phone and tablet and I have found it to be the best mobile device web browser out there. I think if you give the mobile version of Maxthon a try, I think you will find that it closely replicates the same browsing experience that you experience on your desktop computer.

mx3DC

I just learned yesterday that the developers of Maxthon recently released a NEW desktop version of Maxthon, called Maxthon Cloud Browser. I noticed that they had a portable version of Maxthon Cloud Browser available for download, so I decided to give it a spin.

To be honest (and I am still testing this), I am very impressed. I don’t have anything available to test page loads, but I can tell you from experience, this is probably one of the fastest browsers I have ever experienced. Also, this browser is loaded with a ton of built-in features (such as screen gestures, a dial pad, dual page view, a resource sniffer, a screen capture utility, and more…).  I do have to admit, which is a fun thing for me, I had to do some exploring in order to find a lot of the features and how to turn things on and off (i.e. the sidebar).

What the main concept of Maxthon Cloud Browser is that Maxthon Cloud Browser is not limited to a single device ecosystem or operating system: It moves files, data and web session information from browser to browser, unconfined by a single set of cloud products or devices.

If you really want to try something NEW, download the portable version of Maxthon Cloud Browser and give it a try!  I think you may see that this Browser, not likely to break the backs of Firefox, Internet Explorer or Chrome; is a browser that may have a chance of coming out of nowhere.

Core Features:

  • Lightning fast speed – Maxthon Cloud uses an optimized web engine that loads webpages and runs applications faster than any other browsers.
  • Cloud syncing – Maxthon Cloud syncs user data, history and tabs across any platform their choice.
  • Cloud download – Simultaneous storage of user downloads in the cloud;
  • Cloud storage – You can create their own storage space in the cloud.
  • Cloud pushing – You can push content (webpages, text, pictures and links) from any webpage to any device running Maxthon Cloud.

A Web Browser Optimized For The 10 Inch Tablet PC

Making a decision on what web browser to use on your tablet PC can be a tough decision. I personally have tried, and tested, the browser that ships with the Android OS, and others such as Opera, Dolphin and Firefox. What I have found, is that due to the various compatibility issues browsers face with tablets, tablet sizes and the Android OS, each have there own little quirks. Time will tell which browser will surface at the leader when the tablet browsing war slows down.

Another browser that crossed my plate that I am now testing is called Maxthon Tablet.

image

Maxthon Tablet is specifically optimized for the 10 inch tablet.  Note:  Actually the specs on the Google Play site indicate that Maxthon Tablet is optimized run on an Android based tablet 7.7 inches or greater tablet (7.7, 8.9, 10.1).

What I am finding is that Maxthon has done really a super job on this browser.  I find browsing with Maxthon Tablet, on my Toshiba Thrive tablet, gives me the same experience I have with the browser on my desktop computer. As a matter of fact, this browser has impressed me so much that it has become the only browser on my tablet.  At this point, Maxton runs rings around the other browsers.

Fastest and smartest tablet browser. Make no mistake, with over 500 million downloads of its PC web browser Maxthon knows how to make your web sizzle. Maxthon Mobile is packed with cool features like:

Sync to the Cloud – Your bookmarks/favorites travel with you from desktop to mobile.
Theme/Skin – Ever-growing collection of skins that can customize your browser the way you like it.
WWW/WAP switch – Switch between www and WAP versions of the web at your fingertip
RSS reader widget – Find, manage and read your favorite content quickly and easily
Speed Dial – Quick access of the best sites on the web.
Download Manager – Makes it easy to sort, schedule and grab the downloads you need: wherever, whenever.
Super Gesture – Use touch screen commands to surf with your fingertips.
Tab browsing – Powerful tab management that puts your
mobile screen to maximum use.
Amazing speed – Get websites super
fast.
Powerful personalization – Avatars and more.

Opera Mini on my Blackberry

If you are looking for a decent web browser for your Blackberry or your web capable smartphone, then take a look at Opera Mini & Opera Mobile .

Opera Mini

The Opera Mini browser has been specifically engineered and developed with the mobile phone user in mind. The browser interface is elegantly designed and is engineered to use a tenth of the bandwidth of other mobile browsers; thus, reducing data usage and saving you money.

I am currently running the latest version of Opera Mini (v5)on my Blackberry (pay-as-you go phone) and believe me, there is no better web browser for a phone out there. As a matter of fact, I never ever dreamed of seeing a browser on my phone that is comparable to the browser on my computer. Take a moment and watch the video below to see Opera Mini and Opera Mobile in action.

YouTube Video
Opera Mini 5 and Opera Mobile 10

YouTube - Opera Mini and Mobile

Features That I Like:

  • Saves money on data charges
  • Loads Web pages much more quickly than other mobile phone browsers
  • Multitask with tabs
  • User interface has been designed for both touchscreen and keypad-style mobile phones.
  • See your top Web sites visually laid out on your screen in Speed Dial
  • Sophisticated URL auto-completion
  • Reads the largest pages comfortably
  • Address bar and toolbars disappear until they are needed, allowing you to see more of the page you are viewing.
  • Backup your bookmarks, Speed Dials, and search engines to My Opera, and keep them synchronized between different phones

A Simple Solution to Backing Up Your Browser Settings

The everyday computer user primarily uses the computer to browse the internet. As a result, the web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, etc.) becomes one of the most important pieces of software on the computer. Over a period of time, based on the user’s surfing habits, the browser cumulatively collects bookmarks, cookies, history, toolbar settings, extensions, add ons, etc. that the user ultimately becomes dependent on. The problem occurs is when the computer crashes or the user moves to a new computer AND all of those cumulative browser gatherings by the user are lost. I have actually witnessed users that were more upset that they lost their browser bookmark settings, when their computer crashed, than personal documents they may have had.

To prevent this mishap from occurring there is a backup solution, called FavBackup, that will backup your bookmarks and any other settings that are browser specific (e.g. history, cookies, user preferences, extensions and other elements).

image

FavBackup is a portable app that requires no installation and has the capability of backing up the browser settings for various versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari and Flock.  One point to make is that you will be see two different type of backup and restore options:

(1) – Backup or Restore – allows you to select what you desire to backup or restore

(2) – Full Backup or Full Restore – will perform a backup or restore of all settings in one fell swoop.

image

FavBackup is very easy to use, fast and efficient; AND is must-have software for any computer user who is tied to their browser. If anything, make FavBackup part of your normal backup routine and use it to at least backup your bookmarks.

Other Browsers Advance as Internet Explorer Slides

Microsoft’s Internet Explorer continued to lose ground against other browsers in June, according to StatCounter. The market share for Mozilla’s Firefox 3.5 rose rapidly since its launch last week. Opera’s share in Europe has jumped since July 2008 and Apple, Inc.’s Safari has lost global market share, but Safari 4 downloads have been heavy.

Transmute – The Ultimate Bookmark Converter

If you are like me, you may be using more than one web browser OR you may be in the process of changing to another browser. The problem most users experience in these cases is moving their bookmarks (or web site favorites) from one browser platform to another; OR trying to keep their bookmarks synced between the different browser platforms. It has been my experience through assisting other users that there is a “high value” placed on their bookmarks (or favorites). I often hear the statements, “please try and save my favorites or don’t lose my favorites”. Most techie types know the various processes to convert and transfer bookmark formats from one browser format to another; however, it can be a daunting task for the everyday computer user.

There is an easy solution to all of this called “Transmute”. Transmute is software that will easily do all of the work for you when you desire to transfer your bookmarks from one browser platform to another.

Transmute

“Transmute will convert, synchronize, sort, organize and remove duplicates from your bookmarks and more”.

I currently use Transmute to synchronize my bookmarks between Internet Explorer, Opera USB, Chrome, and Firefox. I also look at Transmute as a backup strategy for my bookmarks, as well. There is a “FREE” version of Transmute and a “PAID” version. The “FREE” version supports the major browser platforms and is all most users will need. The “PAID” version takes it one step further and provides support to work with two of the leading “online” bookmarking services (Delicious and Google Bookmarks).

Transmute is available as a full install program or as a portable app that can be run from your flash drive. (NOTE: This is another good tool for the techie toolbox).

Transmute

Publisher’s Description

Extensive Browser Support

Transmute supports all of the major web browsers including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Apple Safari, Chromium, Flock and Konqueror!

Easy to Use

A streamlined interface makes Transmute very accessible.

Automatic Backups

By default Transmute will timestamp and back up your bookmark collections before changes are made, providing extra safety.

Cross-Platform

Transmute supports Windows using the Microsoft .NET Framework. However, Transmute will also run on Windows, Linux and Mac via use of the Mono Framework!

TheWorld Browser – A different kind of web browser…

For those who may not know what a web browser is, it is simply a software application, such as Internet Explorer, that is specifically crafted for retrieving, presenting and traversing information resources on the internet. Many computer users do not realize that there are other browser options out there, other than Internet Explorer; the most popular being Firefox, Google Chrome and Opera (to name a few).

Recently I have been on the hunt for a good portable version of a browser to run from my flash drive. I have tried and used extensively the portable versions of the most popular browsers such as Firefox, Opera, and Chrome; however, I found that after long periods of usage (from the flashdrive), the browsers would start to bog down and/or errors would start to develop.

Sometimes we get so locked into what is popular and forget that there are other options. It was at this point I starting looking outside that circle of “popular browsers” for something different. During that hunt, I tried and tested many (such as Avant, Maxthon, Browzar, QtWeb). I eventually came across a browser called “TheWorld Browser” that not only caught my eye, but has performed beautifully from my flash drive. As a matter of fact, the more I use it, the more I like it.

TheWorld Browser

TheWorld Browser is a “fast, safe and easy way to browse the web” that has features that many of the other browsers do not.  TheWorld Browser is dependent on the Internet Explorer engine, and is guaranteed to be 100% malware free.  This app is small in size (1.4 MB) and, in my opinion, is very fast to the draw…  If you are looking for an Internet Explorer replacement on your PC or a browser to carry with you on your flash drive, I say give this browser a try!

TheWorld Browser

Publisher’s Description

Multi-threaded frame.
TheWorld Browser version 2.0 is among the first multi-threaded frame browser in the world (the first is Internet Explorer 7.0), the multi-threaded window frame can prevent the web pages from freezing.

Intelligent Ad blocking + Blacklist filter.
TheWorld can block popup ad. and float ad. automatically.
TheWorld can block popups and float ads automatically. You can also use a blacklist to filter ads. The blacklist filter works from lower level of HTTP protocol, with regular expression so that you can filter out anything you want.

Web page mute.
TheWorld is the first browser that can disable a web page’s sound with one click.

Powerful Tools
Powerful Tools Built in tools like: Flash filter, unlock page script limited, zoom, Proxy quick switching, Auto complete, Quick media saver, Privacy guard, Mouse gestures, Custom hotkeys and Drag & drop support, make TheWorld one of the most powerful browsers around.

Safer.
TheWorld Browser has built-in safe guards that will protect you while surfing.

Built-in Download Manager.
Which consists of multi-thread download, resumable download, with intuitive download management.

Skins and plugins.
TheWorld Browser supports skins and plugins, we have hundreds of skins and plugins to customize the way you browse. TheWorld has native support for Internet Explorer’s plugins as well.

TheWorld Browser uses the Microsoft Internet Explorer engine and will run on Windows 98/me/2000/xp/Vista.

Opera Browser 10 “alpha” – Available for Download!

If you are an Opera web browser follower, then you may be interested in reading about the new features being implemented (and downloading) the new Opera Browser 10 “alpha” version… Keep in mind that “alpha” software is an indication that the software is in the “debugging” stage of the release cycle. For those of you who are wondering what Opera is: Opera is a  popular web browser that is a competitor to other browsers such as Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome. This download of Opera 10 alpha is geared more toward those interested in testing  the browser prior to its final release.  As one of my readers pointed out, you should only try or test the “alpha” of this browser on another computer (i.e. test PC) and not your main computer.  This post is primarily announcing that a “new” version of Opera is in the works.  This is a clip from the “My Opera Community” web site announcing this release.  I will continue to monitor the development of this software.

We are very excited to give all of you an early Christmas present — a first glimpse of Opera 10! This release feature the much anticipated Presto 2.2 rendering engine which has improvements across the board in terms of speed, stability, support for Web standards, and a whole lot more. We want you to take the browser for a spin and test some of the user requested features we also included.
