The popular Opera web browser is now available without advertising. Although unobtrusive, I never liked having the ads there and used Opera infrequently.
I’m now more inclined to use it on a regular basis. Like Firefox and Mozilla, it’s cross-platform and can be used in Linux or Windows.
Why did they remove the ads: “Opera’s growth, due to tremendous worldwide customer support, has made today’s milestone an achievable goal.” There is a premium support service for US$29.
