2012 is coming to an end, and we here at Choose Opera will be taking a break for the holidays. Espen, Anna and myself would like to take this opportunity to say thank you so much for following us - it makes us humble and thankful. As our last post this year, we'll review some of the year's highlights - and have a mini Opera quiz too! - before wishing you all the best for 2013.
New Opera HQ
Over the summer Opera HQ moved from our old offices to a brand-new setup in Oslo:
That's not all though. Our new Instagram account has pictures from Opera offices across the world!
Opera the Travel browser
Also over the summer, we held the Opera Travel contest with world traveler Ian Wright. The competition was a blast, and the video segments were super popular. In case you missed it, the final answer to our travel quiz, made up of letters from 10 cities around the world, was "compression." (Which is also what happens to the stuff in your suitcase when you travel that much.)
We had a major update to our desktop browser this year, but it didn't happen all at once. Do you remember how many releases we had in total this year? And what's the most current version number of Opera for computers?
When it comes to the world's most popular mobile browser, the plot thickens. We had different releases for all the operating systems in 2012. Can you name all of them?

Happy new year!
Before we close out 2012 for good, let's take a look at the new year's resolutions from 365 days ago. I think I did pretty well on my promise to do fewer Saturday night tweets and I've been more or less at the gym three times a week all year.
That's it for 2012. Thank you again for all the amazing support this year. Have the best holidays ever. We plan to!
