Opera Software today announced that it is teaming with leading Brazilian site, Globo.com through its technology portal TechTudo, to offer a customized desktop browser for Globo users and to offer Globo.com and TechTudo content to users of the Opera desktop browser and the Opera Mini mobile browser in Brazil.

Globo.com content is now being offered with the latest versions of Opera for desktop and the Opera Mini mobile browser. Via the Speed Dial feature and bookmarks, users will have access to sites such as Globo.com and TechTudo.

The Opera Mini browser, the world's most used mobile browser, has more than 100 million monthly users and two billion daily page views. The Opera Mini mobile browser works on more than 3,000 different mobile phone models, from basic feature phones to high-end smartphones.

"By providing customized content, we are following through with our commitment to offer the best Internet experience on any device in any country," said Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software.
