Not open for further replies.


Opera Software CEO Jon S. von Tetzchner said he would swim from Norway to the United States if one million copies of the company's latest browser were downloaded within four days of the April 19 launch. Start looking along the shorelines. After reaching 600,000 downloads in the first 48 hours, Opera 8 has exceeded expectations with 1,050,000 downloads as of April 23 at 10 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time. "I want to thank each and every one of the one million plus people who have downloaded Opera 8 over the last days," said Tetzchner.

Also, the pop up blocker is more effective besides being automatic
