Opera CEO threatens to jump into the ocean?

Apparently, our boss has promised to swim from Norway to the USA with only one stop-over for a cup of hot chocolate at his mother's house in his home country, Iceland if we reach one million downloads within the first four days of the launch of Opera 8.0…

I have no idea what this is all about, but it would certainly be interesting to see if he would actually give it a try. With 600 000 downloads in the first 48 hours after launch, things are looking grim if he plans on staying dry and warm. Then again, Jon is from Iceland, and they are known to be tough people.

If you would like to see him jump in the ocean and go for a swim (I know I would), let people know about Opera by adding an Opera button to your Web site. You even get a free license if you get 250 unique referrals. Don't let Jon get away with this! He will surely be forced to act on his promise! 🙂

  1. I like The Inquirer's comment: "The whole Opera team seems to have been made radically euphoric by the fumes coming from their overheated servers."
