Opera in Poland
Though the company is headquartered in Oslo, Opera’s largest office in Europe is located in Wrocław – fittingly, right across the street from the city’s famous opera house. With a smaller satellite office in Warsaw, the majority of Opera’s developers for both mobile and desktop live and work in Poland – making Opera for Android’s surge there all the more exciting for a team that is so passionate about its growth and development.
In addition to Opera for Android, the team also focuses on the company’s flagship desktop browser – the recently rebranded Opera One. Combining new Modular Design Principles with multi-threaded compositor technology, Opera One brings UI to life like never before.
