The TechCrunch headline reads: Opera Hits 150 Million Users, Announces The Milestone In A Super Creative Way
"Check out Opera.com", a spokesperson for the eponymous Norwegian software company asks of me. I oblige, and what I see seems to be Opera Software co-founder Jon S. von Tetzchner‘s email inbox, browseable and all.
Evidently, this isn't the man's actual email inbox, but seemingly the result of a night of drunken brainstorming by the marketing team at the wacky browser software maker.
Nevertheless, the actual news can be gathered by browsing the emails to von Tetzchner: Opera has apparently hit the 150 million user milestone.
According to the comments, the number 150 million is a count of active users, not just downloads, and it combines all versions of the browser - desktop, mobile and game consoles.
