Every summer, we are lucky to have a group of interns from around the world to join the Opera team. We asked them how was their experience and these are their stories.

This year we unveiled our new brand identity. It’s more than just a logo shift. It reflects what Opera is really about.

Bridging the gender digital divide can spur knowledge and stimulate social participation among women in Africa, and Opera strives to make this possible with its products in a number of ways.

Reading is empowering. In May this year, Opera launched a partnership with Worldreader to provide a distribution channel for their library of free ebooks through Opera Mini.

To celebrate our 20th anniversary we wanted to feature people across the globe whose lives have been impacted by Opera. Because without you, Opera wouldn’t be here today.

9. See what people know about megabytes and phone bills
