Google screams into top Opera soprano gig - again

Norwegians seal two-year search deal for browser

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Google will continue to serve as the default search engine for Opera Software's web browser for another two years, the Norway-based company confirmed today.

The partnership between the ad giant and Opera applies to the outfit's mobile and desktop versions of its browser. Like other software of its ilk, Opera provides a little box in which search terms can be entered and, by default, sent to Google to look up.

The agreement ends on 1 August 2014, said Opera - which announced its second quarter earnings on Wednesday that included the company committing to "ramping up" its mobile wing of the business.

On that front, Opera noted:

The primary driver of Mobile Consumer Revenue continues to be search. Google is Opera’s default search partner for Opera Mini and Opera Mobile worldwide, outside Russia/CIS, and Yandex is Opera’s default search partner in Russia/CIS.

Going forward, Opera expects to generate much more revenue from mobile advertising, mobile search and mobile applications via its owned and operated properties.

Late last year, rival browser maker Mozilla extended its revenue deal with Google for another three years, following some will-they-won't-they speculation about the future of that "sweethearts" partnership. ®
