The journey ahead

Opera Mini started out as a fantasy our engineers dreamed of 10 years ago. They wanted to make the internet available on any device. They made the first rendering system that could display any web design onto any mobile phone, regardless of operating system.

With the invention and adoption of the Android operating system, the dream of an entirely connected world is ever so close to reality. Since 2004, 1.8 billion people have come online and many of these new internet users benefited from the rapid expansion of mobile-network coverage and the growing availability of affordable Android phones.

Opera Mini has a ton to offer these new mobile-internet participants. It is compact in size – only 2.5 MB – but rich in features. It can be installed easily on any Android device running version 2.3 and up. Our unique compression technology also speeds up page loading on slow or congested networks and gives users more value out of their data plans.
