Click (www.opera.com/free/)

So it seems they decided to remove the ads and let loose with full version for free. Good news, as it also seems to be more stable than I remember.

I remember trying it a while back. I hated it. Long live IE7!

Er. Ok...
(are comments like that a bannable offence??? ;) )

Its a good move, but its probably too late. Opera is a very nice browser, very fast and with loads of cool features (more than firefox out of the box, so obviously loads more than IE). Its also more stable and probably more secure than either firefox or IE.

Problem is that firefox has stolen its thunder, and the awesome firefox extensions become indispensible once you get used to them... so even though opera is probably more stable than firefox, I don't think i'll be going back.

Its good that they've also stopped their policy of copying IE's broken layout model and pretending to be IE, and actually started being standards compliant and being themselves.
Good for them, but its too late for me...

Well this was more of an announcement for those people that didn't like firefox and stuck with IE. I personally use FireFox, but the whole point of this is to alert people that Opera is now completely free with no banners or anything.

Never tried it, only IE and FF, and Netscape a long time ago.

I'll just stick with FF, cause its awesome.

Er. Ok...

ERRT... no. :p

If hating gets you banned, then I should get banned for this:

I hate Hitler!!!! :p

Hitler's dead.

IE = Hitler
Opera = Brad Pitt
FF = Gandhi

I second that.

I like the idea of having combined Email, I'll give it a go if the download isn't too big...

Oh, and IE is worse than Hitler...

You wouldn't find Hitler embeding himself in windows so you couldn't get rid of him.

I dunno. My Gandhi is looking exceptionally sexier than Brad Pitt.

If hating gets you banned,
I believe the joke was that his comment of "Long live IE7" should be a bannable offense. I'm more or less inclined to agree.

Firefox is obviously Lucy Pinder with Gandhi-esque qualities.
