Earlier today Opera Software has posted their Q2 2009 financial results which are pretty good.
However, with campaigns such as “Boycott Opera”, it is interesting to check on how EU and Microsoft case has affected Opera Desktop short term user growth.
Q1, 2009 – ~40 million use Opera for PCs
Q2, 2009 – 40 million use Opera for PCs
As you can see, Opera Software has not reported Q1 vs. Q2 desktop user growth (which was 13% in 1Q vs. 4Q08), which leads to speculation that case indeed, affected PC web browser.
Of course, this could also happen due to new competitor’s products, and things might get better with Opera 10 release (set for September 1st).
