We care about the internet, about open standards, and about people. We love to innovate. We enjoy uncovering the new, the unexpected. We believe that new technologies and simplicity are one side of the coin, and a beautiful design is the language our user-friendly products speak. We admire and are inspired by the people who go the extra mile and never stop. That’s who we are.
Opera was founded in 1995 in Norway on the idea that everyone would browse the web on any device. For more than 20 years our browsers have been helping millions of people access the internet to read, create, laugh, and play. We continued to make our browsers smaller and faster and pioneered innovations such as tabs or speed dial, which have since become something we find in all web browsers.
It’s a great privilege and responsibility but also a lot of fun to keep delivering cutting-edge internet browsers to 350 millions of people. We are a Norwegian company with headquarters in Oslo, Norway, and branches and offices in Poland, Sweden and China.
In 2016 we opened a new chapter in our history and focused our core business around browsers and content discoverability apps. Today, we are one of the world’s leading browser providers and a pioneer in the field of integrated AI-driven digital content discovery and recommendation platforms.
