Some Opera statistics

February 20, 2006

In today’s press conference by Opera’s outgoing CFO, Christian Jebsen, some interesting statistics regarding Opera’s download and usage were revealed.

  • Opera’s desktop browser, Opera 8, averages 100,000 downloads per-day, double the previous download rate from before Opera went ad-free.
  • In the first couple of days after the release of the Technology Preview (TP) 1 version for Opera 9, more than 500,000 users downloaded the Opera 9 preview. Never before has Opera has this many downloads for a preview version (note, this doesn’t include beta versions).
  • Opera Mini has amassed more than 1,400,000 active users, since its launch less than a month ago.
  • Opera receives on average of 750,000 unique visitors to its site, opera.com, while the Opera community site receives 600,000 unique visitors per-day.

    Surely Opera is gaining ground, once they get various Gmail issues fixed then its just a cruise to victory

    Ya, but what about the market share.

    Opera’s market share has only grown 0.02 % in a year.

    Don’t get me wrong I’m not a Firefox user, I’ve used it since ever.

    I’m not sure market share is so important. It’s not as if my car suddenly stops working because there are only twenty people in the world who drive the same car as me. As standards catch market share won’t necessarily mean better compatibility. And that’s a good thing, it just creates another “leveling field” and allows more competition and innovation.

    Wow, my English is pretty muddled today! Make that “as standards catch on” and “levels the field.” Sheesh. Here’s to not sleeping strange hours anymore.

    yes but Foofy, if your car is only driven by 20 other people, chances are there are no spare parts for it if it ever does break down.

    Don’t think so.

    “Don’t think so.”

    Wow, well thought out argument you’ve got there!

    The google ads on your blog advertise Opera Mini… Now on the topic of Google and Mini, it seems Google is trying to get a foot in mobile browsing too: http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2006/02/query-less-ordinary.html
