Opera reaches (another) 100 million users

April 7, 2011

Oslo, Norway - April 7, 2011

Opera Software today tinkered in its giant statistics machine and found that Opera Mini reached 100 million monthly users in March and two billion daily page views - new peaks for the world's most used mobile browser.

"Sweeeet!" said Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software.

Hold the phone: didn't Opera just announce 100 million mobile users two months ago? They sure did; though that number represented the combined total for both its mobile browsers, Opera Mini and Opera Mobile. Now, Opera Mini has rocketed ahead to 100 million users in its own right.

The number of monthly Opera Mini users across the globe has grown by 11 million since February 2011 and doubled from the 50 million mark celebrated in February 2010.

Opera Mini's twin March milestone, two billion daily page views, already doubles the one billion daily page views achieved in July 2010.
