Opera 8 downloads surpassed 1M in 4 days... track Opera CEO swim from Norway to USA. Even if this is real - and it would be too disastrous from a PR perspective not to be - there is no way he swims the whole way unless he takes lots of rest breaks on a boat along the way. Which means his trip could take several weeks or even months.

This guy is crazy!! Earlier this week the CEO of Opera Software made the following promise...

“I will swim from Norway to the USA if download numbers of Opera 8 reach 1 million in four days.”

Results will be revealed on Monday, April 25. They apparently hit 600k downloads in 48hrs, so I think he’s up for a long, cold swim.
