2.6m people use Opera Mini on the iPhone & other details

From the press release:

More than 2.6 million people used Opera Mini on their iPhones, in the two weeks following April's mid-month launch. This surge in new Opera Mini users reshaped both the top 10 countries and the top handsets for mobile Web usage, according to Opera's State of the Mobile Web Report, issued today. The United States jumped two spots in the top 10 country ranking, displacing South Africa and Nigeria. Globally, the iPhone immediately became the third-most-popular device for Opera Mini users worldwide.

TBH, I don't find that bit about the 2.6m users to be all that interesting. The really interesting part of this announcement is that Opera tracks users of their browsers. I'm more than a little creeped out by the level of detail in the monthly reports. I'm going to go uninstall Opera and double check that TOR is running properly.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
