Why I work for Opera

That's because I'm in love. I'm driven by something a lot higher than merely a paycheque. When you're motivated by love, it's amazing what you can accomplish.
I love great software that is well designed. I love it when the boundaries of what technology can do are broken, empowering its users. And I love the Web: the promise of freedom and the gift of knowledge that it offers humanity. Because of the Web, humanity no longer needs to be shackled to big media conglomerates for people to get information. We no longer need to be held hostage by the exorbitant fees of telecommunications companies to speak to those in the far reaches of the world.
There's a vision behind what we do at Opera. We believe in this vision of the Web and how it can empower humanity. We are working hard to bring this to everyone on Earth - anyone who can use a cell phone, or an inexpensive electronic device -- we want Opera to be running everywhere so that people can get on the Web. We want people of all nations, those who speak every language, and those with special needs to have the best possible software for using this important technology.
Opera is about bringing this power to all devices and all people. Opera is about innovating to create new ways of empowering those who use the Web. That is what I love about Opera. That's why I'm here.
