Opera Mini downloaded on over a million iPhones in a single day!

15 Apr

After a month of “will they, won’t they” wait for Opera Mini to be deemed fit to get accepted into Apple’s App Store, the initial verdict is out. Users have given a thumbs up to the first real alternative browser on the iPhone with over a million downloads registered on the first day itself. Though the app ain’t perfect yet, we were pretty impressed and are not surprised to see that it has topped the download charts in 22 country-specific App Stores across the globe. While the folks at Opera’s HQ in Oslo are probably hard at work to bring out an update, we would be interested to see how many users stick to Opera Mini as a huge chunk of these million users would have downloaded it out of curiosity after all the controversy generated when Opera submitted the app in March.
