Opera press releases
Feel Free: Opera Eliminates Ad Banner and Licensing Fee
Oslo, Norway - September 20, 2005

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 – at http://www.opera.com.

"Today we invite the entire Internet community to use Opera and experience Web browsing as it should be," said Jon S. von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software. "Removing the ad banner and licensing fee will encourage many new users to discover the speed, security and unmatched usability of the Opera browser."

Opera was previously available free of charge with an ad banner. Users had the option of paying a licensing fee to remove the ad banner and receive premium support.

"Opera fans around the globe made this day possible," said von Tetzchner. "As we grow our userbase, our mission and our promise remain steadfast: we will always offer the best Internet experience to our users - on any device. Today this mission gains new ground."

 looks nice

When I first saw that they removed the ads from Opera I tried installing it and it is actually rather nice. It is very fast, and Flash actually works in it (I've never been able to get flash to work in Konqueror, so I've always had to have a second browser just to view flash sites, which I need for school).

On my desktop Opera is most likely going to replace FireFox, and could replace Konqueror, though 3.5 and 4.0 will make it harder.

I hope the KHTML/Konqueror developers try out Opera to see what some of the competition looks like and maybe get some nice ideas.

sirtalon the problems you have with konq and flash are distro spacific.
what i mean by that is on my system (flash, java, mozmplayer, realplayer, pdf, plugger) all work just fine.
my only complaints is withh the css support and the few crashes i recize when i visit certain web sites with konq.

I'm simple amazed how good Opera can look than Firefox on my screen in kde. Firefox's default linux skin vs win skin looks really bad.

Well pretty nice that Opera Software announced their web browser free. Everybody win \o/

I have been really looking at the differances vs how well opera handels css vs how well konq handels css and i can tell you now opera does not handel css very well at all the acid2 test that opera shows to almost pass is a trick opera can't even handel the css the http://savannah.gnu.org/ has just take a look use konq then use opera to view the url.
My personal thoughts are opera in the ways of how it handels css and any type of plugins on Gnu/Linux is a joke.
Kong just needs better css handeling and support for newer versions of java and then Konq will be #1 ohh and a little more stability wouldnt hurt eather.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
