http://linuxers.org – Results of About.com Reader's choice Awards for Browsers have been announced and Opera holds the crown for both the Desktop and Mobile browser categories. Opera was already being expected as a winner for the Mobile category but it came as a surprise when this browser with a very little share in the market, beat all of the popular Desktop browsers. Call it less voting from other browser's followers or more enthusiastic Opera users but Readers have said it, Opera FTW!. Now, getting into some more details. Out of the 7 categories related to favourite browsers and browser-related softwares, Opera reached the finals in 2 of them and as you can see it won both. Opera-mini, winner in the favourite mobile browser category and Opera Desktop Browser, both were at the top positions from the beginning, in their respective categories. A special mention to the Opera-mobile, browser for smartphones, which was the runner-up in the favourite mobile browser category. Well, what About.com stated about Opera seems to be true. Opera does offer a fast and powerful browser which explains the exuberance of its followers. That said, Opera has no doubt gained a lot of popularity among its users and with the advent of Opera 10.50, acclaimed as the fastest browser, its first postition seems to be more promisable in the coming years.
