Opera Mini Users Growing Fast, 140 Million And Counting

Opera Mini, the famous web browser for mobile devices, is perhaps the best browser offering by Opera till date. According to a recent publication by TNW, the company has announced an 83% increase in Opera Mini usage over the past year hitting the 140 million users mark in October 2011. The report also claims that 22 countries now have at least 1 million users actively using the browser every month. Since its launch in 2006, Opera Mini has doubled its userbase a total of 8 times.

Citing from the source:

In April, Opera announced that its Mini browser had reached 100 million monthly users and two billion daily pageviews – making it the world’s most popular mobile browser. The free browser, which supports 96 languages and huge range of different smartphone and feature-phones including Android, Symbian/S60, BlackBerry and iPhone, reached the milestone in its own right, two months after the Opera Software announced the same figure for its Mini and Mobile browser releases combined.

Last month, Opera Mini users loaded a whopping 86 billion pages, more than doubling year-on-year and accounting for 13 petabytes of data.
