The feature phone market remains a key battleground for browser providers, despite the success of the mobile internet on smartphones, according to Opera co-founder Jon von Tetzchner.
Opera Mini for the iPhone has proved a runaway success, clocking over one million downloads just a day into its release.
The popularity of the browser has been put down to its ability to compress data by 90 per cent, which can help to save data allowances and make the browsing experience up to five times faster.
"However [iPhone] use is still dwarfed by users on other devices including Series 60, Android and BlackBerry devices," said von Tetzchner.
"Feature phones account for more than 80 per cent of shipments, and it is our aim to be available on as many of these devices as possible. We are adding to our user base at a rate of five million a month."
While Opera is not exclusively targeting the enterprise market, von Tetzchner noted that the browser can be used for business and personal use.
Businesses that may be looking to extend the lifespan of office machines could do this by running the latest Opera browser, which functions on machines up to 10 years old, he said.
Opera is also looking to expand its services, and has signed deals to incorporate its browser into upcoming TVs from Philips, Toshiba and Sony.
Tim Shepherd, an analyst at Canalys, agreed with Opera's strategy to target the feature phone market for the moment, but noted that smartphones are in the process of displacing them in the European markets.
"While Opera has a credible desktop browser, it is niche and mobile browsers have undoubtedly been the firm's strongest play in the last couple of years," he said.
"Opera has been a popular download as users have been looking for a com fortable internet experience on mobile devices. This is likely to continue as users will increasingly turn to these devices for casual consumption of media and browsing."
People will always look for the services that are not provided by default, as can be seen by the popularity of the Skyfire application which allows Flash content to be viewed on the iPhone, Shepherd added.
