By Arvind Arora December 23, 2011

With the advent of enhanced mobile handsets and technologies, more and more consumers are using their mobile phones to access the Internet. Mobile web browsers are steadily increasing their user base, which clearly proves the growing adoption of Internet access through the mobile phones.

Opera Software ASA, provider of the well known Opera web browsers for computers, mobile phones, TVs and other connected devices, has announced its latest study, “State of the Mobile Web report for 2011,” that analyzes the most popular websites among the users of its mobile web browser named Opera Mini.

Established in the year 1994, the company also offers tools, distribution, engagement, monetization and market insights to developers, publishers and brands around the world; with its Opera web browser being relied upon by around 220 million users worldwide for computers, mobile phones, TVs and other connected devices.

The new report states that user created content was accessed the most by the Opera Mini users in the year 2011. Websites such as Wikipedia and Blogger, which were included in the top 10 list of most popular web destinations accessed by Opera Mini users in the previous years, also improved their positions this year by gaining their number of unique visitors.

These top ten lists are decided on the usage patterns of over 144 million Opera Mini users each month worldwide, and minor changes in these list rankings denote considerable modification in the overall usage.

Google, Facebook and YouTube, the well known search, social network and video sharing websites have stood the top slots within the Opera Software study, while a number of sites such as app stores and older social sites like Orkut have moved down or out of the list.

The most popular websites in the Opera Mini 2011 study conducted by Opera Software ASA respectively are: 1-; 2-; 3- that moved upwards by one position; 4- that moved downwards by one position; 5-; 6-; 7- that moved upwards by four positions; 8-, 9- that moved downwards by two positions and at last 10- that moved upwards by two positions.

All these inferences are based upon the number of unique users in November 2010 through November 2011. The full list of these websites is available the website of Opera Software ASA.

In August 2011, Research and Markets announced the addition of the "Opera Software ASA Fundamental Company Report Including Financial, SWOT, Competitors and Industry Analysis" company profile to their offering. Opera Software ASA Fundamental Company Report provides a complete overview of the company's affairs. All available data is presented in a comprehensive and easily accessed format.
