100 million smartphone owners browse the web using Opera's products

OSLO, Norway and SAN MATEO, Calif., Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --  100 million Android active users are now accessing the web using Opera's browsers, twice as many as one year ago, Opera Software announced today.

India, followed by China, Indonesia, Russia and Mexico have the largest number of Opera users on Android.

"We are working hard to make fast, secure and easy-to-use web browsers, and I am very happy that we now have over 100 million smartphone customers around the world," says Lars Boilesen, CEO at Opera Software.

"We want to create a connected world, where people have access to information, and the mobile web is absolutely crucial to this goal," continues Boilesen.

Opera Mini is most popular

The most popular Opera app for Android phones is the Opera Mini browser, followed by the Opera for Android browser and Opera Max.

Opera Mini compresses webpages to as little as 10% of their original size, getting users their content faster. Data compression is a big advantage on slow networks, allowing for a superior browsing experience. It also makes the mobile internet more affordable by helping users get the most out of their data plans.

Data-savings app compresses video

Opera users in some markets can also cut down on mobile video data usage with Opera Max. Developed for Android phones, Opera Max is Opera's answer to the massive consumer demand for  accessing mobile video, enabling compression of video, photos and text across most smartphone apps.
