It’s good news for Google, but bad news for Yahoo, which signed a similar deal with Opera in January last year – funnily enough, replacing Google. It’s a big deal, since Opera claims Opera Mini alone now has more than 35 million “cumulative” users browsing 1.7 billion web pages a month.
It’s not such good news for Yahoo, however – I wonder what happened during that year-and-a-bit to make Opera revert to Google. However, MocoNews points out that Yahoo recently pinched T-Mobile’s mobile search contract from Google, so it’s swings and roundabouts.
