Opera Software Jon S. von Tetzchner has been with Opera for a long time - in fact, he co-founded the browser maker back in 1995, and led the company to great success; the desktop version may play a niche role, the various mobile versions surely do not. Today though, he has announced he will be leaving the company due to differences with the board and management.

Well, I'm sure that helped them a lot. Plus you're right about it's growth ending after Google stopped promoting it (in August 2008). But by the time Google started the Firefox referral program (in October 2005) it had already long past Opera in market share and by a significant margin too.

The $1 program was not the start of Google's Firefox promotion.

Care to elaborate on that? I can't seem to find out about any other promotions before the Firefox referral program.
