Norway's Opera moves into #1 spot

As of last month, Norway's Opera web browsing software overtook Apple's iPhone browser as the most popular mobile browser in the world.

A recent Reuter's report said that, according to web anayltics firm, StatCounter, Opera accounted for 24.6% of all internet pages that were downloaded to mobile devices globally in May. During the same time, Apple's iPhone browser accounted for 22.3%.

This is great news for a web browser application that has tried for years to gain traction in the U.S. market, but with little success. It has, however received recent attention for its growth in other locations, like Poland and Indonesia.
