In the first quarter of 2010, we announced that Opera had more than 100 million active users (not downloads or installs, but actual users).
In June/July, we announced more than 120 million active users.
In August, the count was at more than 130 million active users.
During the Up North Web conference in October, we announced more than 140 million Opera users.
And today, we announced that there are more than 150 million Opera users.
150 million users is a major milestone for Opera, but considering the current growth, it won't be long until we reach 200 million users. Any bets on when that will happen?
Note that this is not just for one single platform, but includes the desktop version, Opera Mini, Opera Mobile, and Opera for devices.

If you combine the number of users for Opera on the desktop and Opera Mini, Opera now has more than 100 million active users
This does not include preinstalled or bundled versions of Opera: Only people who chose to install and use Opera are counted. It does not count downloads either: Only people who actually use Opera are counted.
To put this into perspective, this is more than 20 times larger than Norway's population, and as you may know, Opera Software is a Norwegian company.
Any guesses on when we will reach 200 million users?

It has been just a little more than four years since we removed the ads from Opera, and thereby prepared it for the mass-market. In those few years, Opera has reached a desktop user base of 50 million users
This milestone was reached in March, and it means that Opera has added more than 10 million new active users on average each year since the ads were removed.
And just like Opera's user base on the desktop has grown so far, I expect it to continue to grow in the future. Good things are on the horizon for Opera and Opera users.

Today's press release on downloads and number of users
reveals that the number of downloads four days after release has increased from 1 million 2005 (Opera 8) to 4.7 million with the release of Opera 9.5. The number of actual desktop users has actualy doubled since 9.0 in 2006, and is now more than 20 million each month.
We also have more than 12 million monthly users of Opera Mini.
This means that while it hasn't really been reflected in browser stats, Opera has only been gaining users since it became available free of charge.
