Thanks to the popularity of the mobile version, as well as the new "ballot box" on new Windows computers in the EU, Opera says year-on-year growth is 30 percent.

Additionally, more users access the Web using Opera through their gaming consoles and set-top boxes.

I have had many issues with opera, dont get me wrong its a great browser but it doesn't compensate for Bad scripting that almost all other browsers do like text resizing, Minor Formatting errors, even a major memory leak under the right conditions.

Im a Mozilla Suite fan on the PC. however Opera is great on mobile devices.
