Opera Mini users in India have saved 36,000 terabytes of data in one year, from June 2015 to May 2016, according to a report by the company. It states this overall saved data worth Rs 690 crore, calculated considering the cost of 1GB of 2G data at Rs 173 on an average.

Top 100 websites browser using the platform included 31 news websites, 24 download sites, 10 each in educational and social networking categories and 9 in ecommerce. Other categories included 4 video websites, 3 for search, 3 for travel, 2 for jobs and 4 others. Interestingly, 88% of all search pages viewed were from Google, although browsing search pages accounted for only 10% of all the pages viewed on Opera.

Opera claims 38% of all data used with the Mini browser was used to access Facebook, which saved users around 2140.8 TB of data. Data saved was calculated by determining the amount of data that was sent from the websites to Opera’s servers (uncompressed data) and the data that Opera sent to users’ phones (compressed data) after shrinking it.

Failed buyout:

Last month, we reported Opera’s $1.2 billion buyout offer from a consortium of Chinese Internet firms including Kunlun Tech and Qihoo 360 has stalled after the deal hit regulatory troubles in China and the U.S. However, Opera agreed to sell its key consumer business assets—mobile and PC web browsers—for an enterprise value of $600 million.
