Perbedaan Opera, Opera Mini, dan Opera Max di Android

Saya mendapatkan request untuk menulis tentang perbedaan browser Opera, Opera Mini, dan Opera Max dari Mas Arief, kakak kelas saya jaman SMA dulu. Selain dari Mas Arief, sebelumnya saya sering mendapat pertanyaan yang sama juga dari teman-teman yang lain.

Visual Bookmark di Opera 25

Otak manusia lebih mudah mengingat informasi berbentuk gambar daripada informasi berbentuk teks atau yang lain. Hal itulah yang mendasari Opera Software untuk menambahkan fitur unggulan di Opera 25: visual bookmark.

Dengan visual bookmark, kita bisa menyimpan bookmark dengan sebuah gambar sebagai thumbnail untuk mempermudah dalam mengenali/mencari kembali bookmark yang telah tersimpan.

Penasaran? Unduh Opera 25 sekarang juga, sesuai OS yang Anda gunakan:

Ramalan saya, akan ada browser lain yang mengadaptasi visual bookmark ini he..he..he..

Spread Opera across Archipelago

As seen on States of the mobile Web, Indonesia is the leading country for Opera Mini users all around the world. With this great number of users, Indonesia is a very promising market for Opera.

Top countries snapshot

Most of My Opera Community members from Indonesia whom I know use only cellphone to write blog post, upload photos and make friends. Some of them don't even have any PC nor able to operate PC. Based on this phenomenon, what Opera needs is not a fancy technology –because Opera already has it– but rather a way to make Opera Mini's user's life become easy and easier.

And it was an amazing thing when I received a private message from my childhood friend through Facebook because as far I know there wasn't any internet connection in my parent's hometown. He managed to send me private message using his only cheap cellphone, using Opera Mini! :up:

It passionates me more. I fall in love with Opera and start to recommend this browser to friends, friends of friends and as many people as I could. Now they come to me every time they have problem or question with Opera. And I love to answer their question, not forget to mention Tamil's blog that helps me much.

Later on, to spread Opera features all over Indonesian users, I have made a blog named Opera ID. It's written in Indonesian language and is a fun project. Well, it's not my first blog about Opera. I wrote any posts related to Opera on my personal blog and I was happy when Opera Watch put a link into it.

I'm very sure with the wide spread of cellphone all over Indonesian archipelago, more people will get connected into Internet and into each other. And by the help of Opera Mini, knowledges are belong to all human being.

Opera Cake

I remember that Putri made a blog post about Opera yoghurt, this time I make a post about Opera cake :yes:

A friend of mine posted above image on my Facebook wall, looks yummy! Based on the label, it cost approximately US$ 1 each. Thanks jeng! :up:

A Hope, Opera Mini Proxy in Indonesia

As a second position of Opera Mini worldwide users, I think Opera must have proxy server here in Indonesia.

Indonesia has its own internet line called IIX (indonesia internet exchange) as internet backbone. Servers that are located in IiX server will be fast if it's accessed from within Indonesia area. Unfortunately, they're damn slow when they're accessed from other countries.

Some friends of mine have complained about how slow their website when it's accessed using Opera Mini, and it's because the server is located in Indonesia.

Opera Mini will retrieve data using proxy server in Norway and US. If I use Opera Mini to access my website that's located in IIX server, it means that I access my own website from US/Norway before it's delivered into my cellphone later.

With the availability of Opera's proxy server in Indonesia, Opera Mini users from Indonesia will be able to access their local website easily.

I think Opera can get partner to develop proxy server in Indonesia easily. Indonesia is a great developing country with many great local contents.

Blackberry Should Put Opera Browser Into Their Devices

Most of my friends who own Blackberry will also install Opera Mini into their gadget. They know that Blackberry devices already equiped with web browser but it failed to fit my friends’ needs. Too bad, there’s no official Opera Mini for Blackberry yet.

The Opera Team has this initiative to build Opera Mini specified for Blackberry devices but the RIM doesn’t want it.

I think Blackberry should considerring to put Opera Mini or Opera Mobile into their devices. It’s cheaper than create their own browser. Hire the best for the job.

Simply hire Mario and Luigi to fix your broken plumb instead of fixing it yourself.

Opera Mini In The Daily Life

I must admit that I can't get away from internet. Thus I always find any way to put me on the Net. And Opera Mini help me a lot.

I've tried several mobile browsers but none of them fit my needs. I love its data compression, zoom and panning feature, enable and disable image easily, nice interface and the greatest bless is Link Opera. It safes my life many times!

Now I'm hoping that Opera Mini will be bundled with Fingertouch and Tabbed browsing :up:

Safari & Opera, The Facts

Here is a collections of notes I found everywhere on the Net, about Safari’s new features. Quotes below are taken from a discussion entitled Deceptive Marketing on Safari 4:

  • RSS Reader
    Safari was the first browser that allowed reading of RSS feeds.

    On December 19th, 2003 Opera QA announces support for RSS in Opera 7.50 Preview 1.

  • Built-in Google Search
    Safari was the first popular browser to build a search field into its user interface.

    On December 6, 2000 Opera 5 was released with an integrated search field.

  • CSS 3 Web Fonts
    Safari was the first browser to automatically recognize websites that use custom fonts and download them as needed.

    Opera 10 Alpha, which was announced on December 4th, 2008 included support for web fonts.

  • Inline Progress Indicator
    Safari was the first browser to move the progress indicator into the address field, making it more visible and freeing up space for web content.

    On October 26, 2004, Opera 7.6 TP2 included a progress field in the address bar as seen under the heading “OK, preview 2 of V7.6 has finally been released” on the page in the link.

  • HTML 5 Media Support
    Websites can now deliver rich, interactive media as easily as they deliver images. The first browser to support HTML 5 audio and video tags, Safari helps developers create media-rich sites that don’t require additional plug-ins.

    On April 17, 2007, Opera Labs announced an experimental version of Opera 9.5 with support for the video HTML element.

  • Download Management
    Safari was the first popular browser with a download management window. Use it to view the progress of your downloads; pause, resume, or cancel a transfer; or find the location of downloaded files.

    Where they have been? In a cave?

  • Tabs Organizing
    Safari was the first browser to let you organize tabs by dragging and dropping

    If they don’t count Opera and Chrome, it is true.

Here are some other thoughts, with original source (link) included.

  • I thought Apple never copies anyone? Wheres the innovation? It seems more like a Chrome Clone… (source)
  • Fans of Opera’s Speed Dial and Google Chrome will say that Safari 4’s “Top Sites” page looks awfully familiar. Like Chrome, Top Sites shows a thumbnail grid of web sites you’ve visited based on frequency, which changes as your browser history does over time… (source)
  • Well, it seems like Apple’s new web browser “marketing campaign” is most of the time based on lies… (source)

Zenwalk 6.0 RC, with Open Office

Zenwalk has announced their release candidate for Zenwalk 6, a big leap from previous version, 5.2.

Zenwalk 6.0 will be packaged with XFCE 4.6, kernel and Open Office. I think Open Office is the main reason why the ISO is multiplied in size. The ISO size for previous version was + 400mb and now it is + 700mb!

I don’t like Open Office and I don’t use office application very often, so I’m gonna remove it away and replaced with Abi Word and Gnumeric Spreadsheet. Two other applications that would be removed are Iceweasel and Icedove. I will replace them with Opera, my favourite browser that already has mail client and RSS reader, very cool.

Now I can’t wait to download and install stable release of Zenwalk 6.0, please hurry! 😀
