opera-100mWhen you talk about a web browser on the Android platform, most of the time we would be looking at the stock browser that arrives with any version of Android, while many others have already decided to jump aboard the Chrome Browser bandwagon. Well, we do know for sure now that out of the 19,000 different Android devices (as in types, not the total figure – for instance, there might be 5 million units of a particular type that are in the market) that are being used globally at the moment, there are approximately 100 million active Android users who are rocking to an Opera Browser on their particular device.
