We are free, free at last. And before I am going to mention company secrets I better shut up. Just download it and feel free.
Jorgen here at the table:
Feel free, feel Opera.
So what's that big secret you're not allowed to tell us? Let's hope it's not about gigantic wooden horses ;)
So, how will they finance their operation? Or is this just an extension to their anniversary giveaway?

But this is great news, making Opera a real competitor to FF now!
YES!!!!!!! Thanks for giving me the news, Anne!
Good decision from Opera. Though I'm not sure why the decision was made.
I think this is great, I hope they keep making money too.
How long have you known?
Arve Bersvendsen answered that question with a link:
Clever advertising. Now everybody boasts about Opera.
This is great news indeed.
In addition to the search engine contract, remember that Opera's mobile browser is still a large part of their money making, and this move will increase the knowledge of Opera's existence and the power of their brand.
I've always liked Opera, and wish them the best of luck.
Come on, tell us the secret... :-) I promise I won't tell ;-)
It will pay off.
I just hope that one day it will be really free. But this may be a step forward, into that direction.
Ben, it really is free. Do you really think Opera will expose their source code? They still have the smallest source and fastest browser.
I think Opera did a great thing! Think free, think Opera
Jorgen, if the source code is not free, the software is not really free. We don't only need free beer, we need free speech as well.
And why would Opera not do that? Is Mozilla doing badly? Is Novell doing badly with releasing more and more products as free software? And I could go on and on...
Anne, you know your navigation is different in Opera than in Firefox?
Also, it screws up my new site completely...hmmm
