According to a dataset by G&R, exclusively provided to FS later in 2015, Opera Mini, the mobile phone browser, tops the rank of a list of browsers prepared based on the use of visitors of most of the Bangladeshi websites.

Opera Mini is popular because it claims that it consumes less data which means browsing internet via Opera Mini is less costly. This is also indicative of the future of web consumption.
