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.

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.

Google was promoting Firefox early on. I simply mentioned the $1 thing to show just how aggressively Google pushed Firefox. Similar to how they are aggressively pushing Chrome now, which explains most of the growth I think.
