Overwhelming response to Opera 8

April 19, 2005

With official release today of Opera 8, Opera’s servers are working really hard.

Within the first 30 minutes of Opera releasing the new version, more than 10,000 copies were downloaded.

In fact, Opera modified their homepage with the following statement:

Thank you for the overwhelming response to download Opera 8!

Due to severe strain on our servers we have limited the content on this page to free up more bandwidth while we are working overtime to deal with all the requests.

Here is a screenshot of the modified opera.com page.
