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.

For the life of me, I cannot understand just how the hell Opera is expecting to really make any money off of this. The Google Ads were perfectly fine by me and probably many others because they were just a little bar at the top of the browser. Now I don't see how they are going to really make any money since most of their users don't see the $30 support fee option.

Btw, a little bit of satire about them:
