Opera study highlights country-specific user behaviour

Opera Software has released its latest State of the Mobile Web report, which is based on anonymous and aggregated data from the servers of Opera Mini, its mobile web browser.

As part of this, the company has released stats on Opera Mini usage throughout January 2012. It recorded 159m users over the course of the month, who viewed 108.7bn pages.

Compared to December 2011, the increase was 4.2 % on a month-to-month basis for users, and 5.4% growth for page views.

In terms of trends, the study considers shifts in global surfing patterns, with two-thirds of all countries surveyed more active on the mobile web during weekdays than the weekends.
