Opera goes free

Long time niche browser Opera has finally decided to go with the rest of the market and offer its product for free, without any advertising. Opera lead the way with many accepted technologies like tabbed browsing long before they became trendy in Firefox or Safari but has always struggled for market share as they targeted the business sector rather than private users. I’m all for increased competition, if nothing else at least other browsers (particularly FF) now have a serious player pushing them to keep their products up to date. You can’t beat free, having not used the browser for years I know I will be giving it a try tonight.
