according to NetMarketShare released 10 Monthly update , stay PC On the market ,Chrome The market share of browsers is close to 70%, Next in line is Edge、Firefox etc. .

in fact , Except for the giants who have long dominated the top of the list , There are also browsers that were once highly anticipated , So far, it has a large audience .

Among them, the protagonist of this article ——Opera( Auburn ) browser .

25 Year old “ Ashes ” browser

Now , The four browser kernels we often mention include : Microsoft IE Of Trident、 Google Chrome Of Blink、 Apple Safari Of Webkit、 Fox's Gecko.

Few ordinary people know , There is also the fifth largest browser kernel in the world , It is Opera Of Presto, It's also recognized as the fastest kernel in the industry .

Opera On 1995 Founded in Norway , After its establishment , And it's always going on “ Small and beautiful ” High cold image of .

In terms of product technology ,Opera Speed dial has been launched one after another 、 Tag page 、 Mouse gestures and other innovative features , It was warmly welcomed by users .

later , Because of the high cost of information ,Opera And by virtue of excellent traffic compression technology to harvest a number of mobile phone users .

90 Browser wars in the S , It's the first product war in the history of the Internet .

Now those e-commerce Wars 、 Take out war 、 Internet people sharing bike Wars , At that time, he was still playing bully at home , Or do homework in the classroom .

At that flow rate KB Calculated 2G Time ,Opera Just as brilliant as Nokia mobile phone .

at that time Opera Already one of the most famous browsers in the world , Now I have 25 Years of history “ predecessors ”.

Acquired by Chinese enterprises

That year ,Opera Our development team has devoted a lot of effort to the browser , bring Opera Become the first listed company with browser as its main business .

However , Then he was copied by his colleagues 、 Business strategy mistakes 、 After a series of major attacks such as the birth of smart phones ,Opera Trapped in internal and external difficulties .

2016 year , Strange tiger from China 360 And Kunlun wanwei started to acquire Oprea Browser plan , And upgrade it .

2017 year ,Opera Under the leadership of the new owner, a new generation of browsers has been released Neon, It's called function complete explosion IE And Google browser .

Others think that , current Opera Browser is basically the same shell browser as domestic browser , Its own strong advantages have not been exerted at all .

There are also users who are still interested in Opera Give great hope : If you meet a money burning owner , Can kill all browsers now .

According to the one at the beginning of this article 10 The list of global browser market share in January shows that ,Opera Browsers still occupy eighth place .

Although a little behind the domestic QQ Browser and Sogou browser , But in terms of its history , It's already worth celebrating .

After all , An Internet product of bone ash level , After more than 20 years of tortuous development —— Giant squeeze 、 Share shrinkage 、 Serious losses , In the end, he was reborn in the hands of a Chinese company .

At least from this point of view ,Opera It's kind of “ Nirvana ” 了 .
