Youmightofread, that Opera have dropped the fee and ads from their browser. It was only at the end of last month they were celebrating their 10th anniversary and giving away the code to anyone that registered, and now its totally free. To me it looks like they were just throwing bread out to the fishes to see how many came up, and obivously enough did cause the whole loaf is there.
Will they manage to get a share of the market before IE 7 comes out though? Dare i say it, it looks like a browser war is in the making again, with IE maybe needing to defend on two fronts. My own stats are already showing that Firefox is slipping a bit.
Personally as long as they browse safely and are compliant i don't care. Happy browsing.
