Opera Software is openning an office with around 10 employees in Sillicon Valley which should help them to expand business and manage the partnership in the US, as there are many big companies located in Silicon Valley, for example: Google and Yahoo.
This move should also help them to get more attention in the US among the web users and promote Opera web browser more aggressively.
Check their job listings if you are interested.
If you haven’t seen this video yet, be sure to do that.
Maybe that could mean war, here’s a Steve Jobs quote about iPhone:
“it is the full Internet in your pocket for the first time.”Of course, Opera wasn’t happy about that, as their Opera Mobile already do that. So they “complained” a bit, later that day Steve Jobs responded (quote):
“I apologize. I should have been more specific. Our products will be the first to allow normal, non-loser people to do these things.”Also, according to Apple, Safari 3 for Windows is much faster than Opera or Firefox. Of course, this seemed to be not so true.Well… I think that Opera is no longer a “quiet” browser. They’ve responded with a funny video about Opera Mini and iPhone. They are trying to get as many attention as possible now instead of just spreading word via it’s community. I am glad that they’ve changed the way in which they promote products. I am also almosut sure, that Apple will create something similar to this against Opera too. Maybe that means war. We will see in the future. As for now I am really happy with things they are doing now. They want attention in any price.
See Mom, we’re not a small company and we came to beat our competitors. So stop ignoring our browser, as we are here now.
Confused already? You won’t be after reading this article.
Opera Software vice president Tatsuki Tomita confirmed rumors, that they are developing Adobe Flash replacemement for Opera Mini and Mobile versions.
Why they are doing that? As you know, performance is really important
in the mobile phones, however, current flash technology seems using too much CPU and memory resources which slows down mobile phones and make their battery last less.
It’s not officially known yet if this new replacement will be able to play Flash too. Waiting for more news in the future.
As for now, I’d like to congratulate Opera team for such a decision.
