Opera started in 1994 as a research project inside Norway’s largest
telecom company, Telenor. Within a year, it branched out into an
independent development company named Opera Software ASA. Today,
Opera Software develops the Opera Web browser, a high-quality,
multi-platform product for a wide range of platforms, operating
systems and embedded Internet products – including Mac, PC and
Linux computers, mobile phones and PDAs, game consoles, and other
devices like the Nintendo Wii, DS, Sony Mylo, and more. Opera’s
vision is to deliver the best Internet experience on any device.
Opera’s key business objective is to earn global leadership in the
market for PC/desktops and embedded products. Opera’s main business
strategy is to provide a browser that operates across devices,
platforms and operating systems, and can deliver a faster, more
stable and flexible Internet experience than its competitors.
