Opera, the web browser maker, has reached the top of the iPhone application download chart nearly one day after debuting its own free browser application.
The application has been downloaded by users over a staggering 1 million times after its debut on April 14, 2010.
Apple took nearly 3 weeks to finally agree to program and now the Opera web browser war has been developed for other mobile hardware.
However the Opera mini browser is certainly not the first alternative to the Apple Safari Web browser.
In May 2009, a German developer released at iPhone browser named iCab.
At the moment, there is no Internet Explorer or Firefox application and there is likely not to be any time in the near future because of the development environment for the iPhone.
However the Opera web browser was not initially developed for the iPad, but the program will work on the iPhone.
Over the coming years, it is expected that the mobile marketplace is expected to grow significantly. Advertising is big business on mobile devices. This trend is likely to continue a long time to come.
