After a lengthy voting period and more than 20000 votes in the most active category, the results from the About.com 2010 Web Browser Reader's Choice Awards are finally in. It was a tight race at times, but a clear winner emerged in the end:
Not only did Opera grab the first spot in the Best Major Desktop Browser category, with 51% of the votes (and Firefox in second place with a healthy 41%), but we completely dominated the Best Mobile Browser category, where Opera Mini and Opera Mobile share came in first and second, with 37% and 28% of the votes respectively.
All three Opera browsers in the browser polls ended up in the top spots!
I should perhaps add that a poll like this is of course completely unscientific, but it could show the relative strength of the different browser communities to a certain extent. How great is it that "little Opera" was able to rally the community behind it like this?
The credit for this goes to all you Opera fans out there, whose votes brought Opera to the top. As a little "thank you", I can perhaps reveal that we have some big things coming your way for both Desktop, Mini and Mobile this year. Stay tuned for more!
