Google Chrome & Opera Celebrates Their BirthdaysNo cake for you.

If you need an excuse to start drinking on Monday mornings, then we are about to give you two.

As it turns out, Opera Software, which was founded on August 30, 1995, has recently celebrated its 18th birthday, making it one of the oldest browser makers in the world (fun fact: Internet Explorer 1 debuted on August 16, 1995).

Not only that but Google Chrome too was revealed at a similar timeframe (September 2, 2008), which today marks the five years of web browser innovation.

So here you have it, and if you wonder when Firefox saw its initial release, it was September 23, 2002.
