It was about time opera started to come to their senses.
Firefox had to lead the way first.. and its sad because opera was a far
ahead of anything that existed before FF. Now that they switched to free
finally they have a chance to make some money. It seems ironic but "free"
things can make money.

PS. Gordon, you never answered my email......

Opera Software has been a profitable company for years. They are currently
publically traded in Norway. Opera is still making money on the desktop
browser (a lot of their revenues are made in the embedded browser space),
but the ad has been replaced by other revenue generating mechanisms.
Making the browser free was a business decision for the company that had
to be justified before it could happen.
