Opera gets 100 million users having by Microsoft deal ‘




Opera has gained a deal with Microsoft estimated hundred million users. Microsoft showed namely the Asha phones, with the S30- or S40 operating system, the Nokia Xpress-browser attack in favor of the mobile browser of the Norwegian company.

The deal, announced in August that was made, have new Asha phones from Microsoft set as default Opera Mini browser. In addition, the US company encourages users to the Xpress browser to exchange for the Norwegian browser. Facing The Wall Street Journal let Opera know that there are approximately 100 million Asha users currently switching from Xpress to Opera.

The agreement has all the appearance that Microsoft wants on the development of its own browser for cheap phones. Microsoft Xpress and the Asha line got owned after the acquisition of the telefoontak of the Finnish Nokia, earlier this year. However, the cheap devices continues to make under the Nokia brand.

Xpress is based on the Gecko engine from Mozilla and can compress Web pages to save data. Opera Mini also distinguishes itself from many other web browsers as Opera serves up pages through its own server, which compresses the images, so the phone does also collect less data. Microsoft does something itself with its Sense Data Service for Internet Explorer on Windows Phone
