Android smartphone users who utilize Opera browsers to access the World Wide Web now number 100 million globally, according to a press statement by Opera Software ASA.

The press statement by the Oslo, Norway-based browser vendor said this number is twice that of the previous year.

It said the Opera Mini Browser, which compresses webpages to as little as 10% of their original size, is the most popular app for Android smartphones.

This is followed by the Opera for the Android browser and Opera Max, the latter an app that compresses video, photos and text across most smartphone apps.
