Sorry, the hand was quicker than my mind. I meant to say Revenue growth of 40 percent in the first quarter of FY 2014. If you compare first quarter of 2014 (87 million) to first quarter 2013 (61) million, you get some idea of an improving revenue situation. The financial results, as well as the numerous other endeavors discussed in their Quarterly Report for the first quarter of 2014, evidence a vital, energetic company, one seemingly on a well thought out track. On stocks, I see from your link, alreadybanned, Opera's 1 year run -- a 66 percent rise. Wow. Okay, even if it was higher than that, but has settled back a bit, that's quite a rise -- and though you suggest it's not related to desktop Opera, but Skyfire (and cloud solution technology), it cannot but reflect well on the decision-making of Opera, the company. For sure now, there has been, and still is, some vocal criticism of their change from the Presto engine to Bing for Desktop Opera, but that opposition (as I noted in my last post) comes from those who have a huge self-interest in features of the old Opera, lost under the Bing browser, at least for the time being. So the passion of the arguments, which go so far as to suggest that Opera is incompetent or has made a bad business decision, can perhaps be taken with the proverbial "grain of salt."
