A recent Opera Software’s State of the Mobile Web report reveals that has grown to become the second largest website category in the list of top Indian domains.

"In a breakdown of the top Indian domains, one category sticks out from the crowd. portals, both Indian and international, have traditionally been very popular among the mobile surfers of India, and remain on top.", the report said. However, there is a challenger on the top lists of popular website categories as there is increased traffic towards portals.

An analysis of top 200 domains shows that websites made up 30% of the total visits, 14%, social networking 9%, education 7% and travel 6.5%.
