Opera web browser turns 15!

by Arty2

15 years of Opera

Happy Birthday to the browser of choise for 40 million people, all Nintendo Wii and DSi users, yours truly included! Today, Opera turns 15; if you’re using a different browser, here’s a look on Opera’s innovations over the years plus 15 more reasons to use it.

Fifteen years ago, two computer scientists sat at their desks in a research lab in what is today Telenor, Norway’s telecommunications incumbent, itching to begin a new project. They were going to build their own Web browser. Those first keystrokes would become Opera, the browser that has set — and continues to set — the standard for browser innovation. Jon von Tetzchner, the CEO of Opera Software, and Geir Ivarsøy began coding the original desktop Web browser in April 1994. Today, about 40 million people use Opera on their Windows, Mac and Linux computers.
