to address the challenges faced by users in accessing the internet on mobile devices – particularly in regions with limited network connectivity and slower internet speeds. We recognized the need for a browser that could deliver a fast and efficient browsing experience, bringing access to the web to mobile devices.

And so

Opera Mini
WORK_OF_ART

was developed with a clear mission in mind: to make the internet accessible to everyone. The team behind

Opera Mini
ORG

envisioned a browser that could bridge the digital divide and empower users to explore the vast online world, no matter where they were located. This commitment to inclusivity and accessibility has been a driving force behind

Opera Mini
ORG

’s success.

The key has been

Opera Mini’s

Data Compression

technology, which allows users to save

up to 90%
PERCENT

of their data while browsing. And so, especially in areas where the cost of data is high,

Opera Mini
ORG

has served – and is still serving – as a

first

window to the web for

millions
CARDINAL

of people.

The browser has been especially successful across

Africa
LOC

, where the cost of data is among the highest in the world.

African

users require a practical and reliable tool that enables them to browse the web with ease while consuming less data. Now Opera has

over 90%

brand awareness across the continent, having built up a vast and loyal user base for deliberately designing mobile products with the

African

market in mind.

When the world went online at the start of the pandemic,

Opera

doubled down on its commitment to providing affordable access to the internet by launching free data campaigns. In partnership with the leading telecommunications companies across

Sub-Saharan Africa
LOC

,

Opera
ORG

has provided

over 40 million

people with up to 3GB of free browsing through

Opera Mini
ORG

. And we continue to expand, having recently partnered with

Safaricom

to launch the

first
ORDINAL

free data campaign in

Ethiopia
GPE

. This initiative has helped to empower users throughout the continent, enabling them to establish businesses, connect with loved ones, and embark on educational journeys, all with greater ease and affordability.

Apart from its data-saving capabilities,

Opera Mini
ORG

is also noteworthy for its speed and security features. The browser compresses and optimizes content before it reaches users, so that pages load faster even on slow connections. Furthermore,

Opera Mini
ORG

comes with a built-in ad blocker, which not only saves data but also provides for smoother browsing.
