How we are connecting people to the web
Our technology is based on connecting people to the internet. We believe that everyone should be able to access information online. What we see, is that many can’t afford to access the web, or don’t have the technology to participate. In the U.S., about 60% run out of data on their mobile subscriptions every month. And many are worried about the cost of going online because of expensive data plans.
We have made powerful compression technology that will help people to connect and stay online. We make browsers that are standards compliant, and we work with a lot of companies to make internet access more affordable.
This is our current line-up of products that you can install and use to support our cause: Opera browser: A browser for Windows and Mac, also available for Android Opera Mini: A fast and powerful mobile browser, works on nearly any device Opera Max beta: Our latest and greatest data-savings app for Android Opera Coast: A browser that looks great and uses all the touch features of iPhone or iPad
