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.

Way to go Opera!! I use Opera exclusively on my windows box and firefox on linux and freebsd. the only reason I don't use it on my nix boxes is because of the add, I didn't think buying the same program for different OS's would be a smart thing to do!! I guess now I don't have to :-) ..... However now that they went free I wounder how they are playing to make money?!? is it a good thing that they went free? or is it a desperate move to stay competitive? I hope not the latter!!!
