Opera Software has changed its name to simply “Opera” as the company announced a new logo and brand identity on Tuesday.
The company noted in its announcement that though, Opera Software started out as a browser vendor, it now offers a far wider range of products and it wants its new brand to reflect this. Opera’s apps now reach 350 million users globally, including those in Nigeria.
“Today, we see Opera more as an internet company providing great experiences online,” the company said in its announcement today, and not just as a traditional “software” company.
The company says its new three-dimensional “O” logo “symbolizes a gateway that leads you to more: more content, more discoveries, more answers, more communication, more fun, more data savings, more of life – whatever you seek online, Opera helps you do more!”
The first product to feature the new logo is Opera Mini for iOS, while other products are billed to follow suit as soon as possible.
Opera Mini is about the most popular mobile and smartphone browser in Nigeria. Though the web browser is not as popular as Firefox and Chrome in the desktop version, it is still one of the most used browsers in the world.
