If I'm not mistaken Opera had for a while economic problems and thus resorted to ads to keep themselves alive. Witch they did. Now (in contray to what everyone is saying) they are doing very well! Although it is not PC's but Mobiles and Consoles that is their main market. I'm not really sure why the bother developing their desktop browser... possibly because it's following is small, but oh so passionate about their favorite browser? ;)
