And now let’s move on to the Opera Mobile Store, the fifth-largest mobile app store in the world and the world’s largest cross-platform app store with more than 200,000 apps to offer. Opera Software was glad to announce that the Opera Mobile Store saw exponential growth in its user base over the 12 last months and that it reached a new milestone of 105 million monthly visitors at the end of Q4 2013.

"The Opera Mobile Store was launched in September 2011, based on the technology from the acquisition of Handster. In just over two years, the Opera Mobile Store has shown strong growth – from 18 million monthly visitors to 100 million, and has seen a fivefold increase in the number of apps offered" says Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software. "The compression technology in Opera’s browsers, combined with the broad portfolio of apps in the Opera Mobile Store across many different platforms, have resulted in massive adoption of the store worldwide."
