What does the internet mean for you?

Information and connections. Information has become so much more accessible than ever before. And, the internet has made the world smaller through constant connections.

Do you remember the time you were still using a basic phone?

Yes, in 2009. I remember I wanted to check something on the internet at that moment with my GPRS phone. It took forever for a page to load. Opera Mini saved the day!

Have you shifted to a different mobile browser now that you have a smartphone?

I always have Opera Mini with me. That first experience with Opera was very positive. Everything was really snappy.
