Opera 8 downloaded more than one million times - an Atlantic swim!

Posted on Tuesday, Apr 26 2005 @ 00:33 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Opera's CEO Jon von Tetzchner said he would swim from Norway to the United States if Opera 8 was downloaded a million times in its first four days of release. Unfortunately for Jon this target was exceeded over the weekend!
Tetzchner entered the "freezing Oslo fjord" on Monday and started swimming toward the United States, the company said. Opera's public relations manager, Eskil Sivertsen, is rowing an inflatable boat alongside Tetzchner "as an act of guilt after making the CEO's statement public," according to the Opera Web site.
