Microsoft is starting to get back on its feet. After a triumph over Yahoo! for the most used web search engine, the company musters up another feat by being the second most viewed provider of online videos.

After all the downplay coming from every corner, it’s good to see Microsoft is finally gaining momentum. Their websites gave the company enough numbers to become Internet’s second most viewed provider of online streaming video.

Is Microsoft starting to get its mojo back from the old glory days?

"The Web as we know it is evolving, and we are committed to making it more accessible across diverse devices." ---Christen Krogh, Chief Development Officer, Opera Software

Opera announced that they’ll be coming up with Sony TVs and Blu-ray players. The new Opera solution will be sporting HTML 5, OIPF and HbbTV support. However, Flash isn’t announced yet, but we’re wishing it will be included upon release.

“The Web as we know it is evolving, and we are committed to making it more accessible across diverse devices,” said Christen Krogh, Chief Development Officer, Opera Software. “Our ability to address key hybrid broadcast-broadband initiatives in numerous markets makes us a natural fit with Sony. By delivering both a global viewpoint and the necessary technology, we are able to stay on the cutting edge of the industry.”

Meanwhile, they didn’t include any other information about the devices which’ll be supporting Opera, but somehow we have a good guess that these devices are those presented during CES 2011.

C out the video from Opera after the skip.
