Opera Pushing For Better Awareness in North America
Saturday, September 19, 2009 1:52:23 AM
Given Opera's giant share in Russia (36%), Ukraine (43%) and other countries, I've always found it strange that more users don't take advantage of Opera in the U.S., given its user-friendly benefits (too many to name now).
Advertising can't be the reason because how can Russians or Ukrainians perceive Opera to be so great with zero advertising? I mean, 43% -- FORTY-THREE -- of Ukrainians actually went out of their way to download Opera for a better, faster web experience...instead of using the default IE browser (no Apple presence there yet, it seems).
Any ideas why? If you're in Russia or Ukraine, would love to hear the Opera buzz there.
