Opera is now Free

The makers of the Opera Web browser has decided to make their product completely free - like Linus Trovalds the creator of Linux sait, "Software is like sex, it is supposed to be free" - and to remove the banner ads from its browser altogether. I’ve never been a huge Opera fan, but it’s known to be very rich features wise, but also comes with a slightly more complicated Interface than Firefox or IE. Obviously this move was inevitable, as Firefox is stealing the lights, and Opera is barely profiting from the Ads or the browser in the first place, as it controls only around 1% of the marketshare. If Opera browser is to gain more momentum it will have to be free.
