Opera Browser Goes Ad-Free
Posted on September 21, 2005TechNewsWorld reports that Opera has announced that they will no longer charge for an ad-free version of their browser. The move follows a test of free registration codes for Opera on August 30 during a 24 hour period. August 30th was the 10th anniversary of the browser from Opera Software, which debuted in 1995.
Jupiter Research analyst Joe Wilcox told TechNewsWorld that the company had a fairly good response to its anniversary promotion. "The response to Opera's free offer was probably a catalyst in this position," he said. "It may have confirmed a strategy that the Opera folks were already thinking about."This should obviously boost usage of the browser and help it compete with its rivals. Web surfers can now download the ad-free full version of the Opera browser from the company's website, opera.com, for free.
