Bloomberg: Opera Software ASA agreed to sell itself to a group of Chinese technology companies for about 10.5 billion kroner ($1.2 billion) in a deal that will give the Norwegian maker of Web browsers additional financing and access to new customers in China.



Opera Software was founded as an independent company on August 30, 1995 by Jon Stephenson von Tetzchner and Geir Ivarsøy.  In June 2011, Tetzchner announced that he was leaving Opera Software.


In December 2013, Tetzchner founded the company Vivaldi Technologies and launched the online community site vivaldi.net. Vivaldi.net includes a forum, blogs, chat, photo sharing and a free email service named Vivaldi Mail.


On 27 January 2015, Vivaldi Technologies released the web browser Vivaldi.
