Opera Software "Opera Software today permanently removed the ad banner and licensing fee from its award-winning Web browser. The ad-free, full-featured Opera browser is now available for download, completely free of charge, here." This news got submitted a staggering 14 times, and as far as I know, that's a record.

Great move Opera!

I love this browser, it's notably faster than anything else I've tried and it's soo smooth to use.
And I just love how easy it is to add stuff like custom search boxes next to the google box. I have added imdb there for example.

I first switched to Opera a few years back, when IE just got on my nerves one time too much, and I've never looked back since.

I've tried to like Firefox as much, especially since it was free and Opera wasn't (my only 'issue' with it) but I just couldn't like it enough to switch. Opera is just soo much nicer to use and now it's free too (saves me the license fee I undoubtedly would've payed sooner or later)! very nice.
