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.

Opera's business model is dead

Both Opera and Access (who just bought PalmOS) both make their money from selling web browsers to embedded devices.

Ever since Nokia switched to khtml browser for their smart phones --- both Opera and Access saw the writing on the wall, that they will be out of business very soon if they don't change their business model.
