Seems like the rumours weren’t quite right. Enter your e-mail address at the Opera website and they’ll give you 7 registration codes – one for each platform they support. Enter this code in Opera and you get it ad-free 🙂
This “special offer” ends at midnight tonight (GMT+1/CET/BST). Asa Dotzler says Opera is 1/365th as free as Firefox 🙂
It would, however, be interesting to see whether these licenses will still be valid when users upgrade to newer versions, how Opera plan to stop people from distributing these codes after the offer ends and what current paying customers will think of this – a waste of $39?
Firefox 1.5 Beta 1 should be released Thursday 8th September.
