It's been a busy year for browser maker Opera Software ASA. The Norwegian company went public on the Oslo Stock Exchange, synced up its Web browsers with its Version 7.50 release and made more inroads onto mobile devices.

eWeek recently talked to Opera CEO, Jon von Tetzchner, to discuss Opera's plans and the future of the Web browser.
