Mobile web browser downloaded over one million times in its first day of availability.
According to Apple's download count, Opera Mini was downloaded to 1,023,380 Apple devices on its first day of availability across the different markets it was released in.
The browser is said to be six times faster than the speed of other browsers and include significant web-page compression to keep roaming and pay-per-MB costs at a minimum.
“Today iPhone users have a choice, and, as the numbers show, they are eager to explore new and faster ways to surf the Web on the iPhone - especially during heavy Web traffic,” said Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software.
“With any widely available and frequently downloaded Opera product, we are appreciative of all the feedback we are getting, as it helps us to continually improve our product and better meet the needs of our users,” he added.
