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.

i agree, not everything is about OSS believe it or not. We need balance here.

that is great news about Opera finally good to see another browser on the loose. I just downloaded it to OS X and i am impressed. May even replace firefox as my secondary browser. Anything that will steal people from the MS thunder is only a good thing. Well done Opera for that radical move... what a brilliant marketing strategy here...what could ever happen next! No longer can we use the "fee excuse". i think we should enjoy this before they change their minds ;)

Amen to that! That is really getting tiring. They still have the OSS excuse though..
