Opera without Advertisement

Today Opera released their browser for free (as in beer) without advertisements. This is really good news for me because Opera is my favorite browser and a great piece of software.

And before someone is arguing that I should use Firefox instead, because Opera is not open source (free as in speech), I am a supporter of Free Software but Opera is just an exception. Out of curiosity I have even installed vrms to show the non-free packages on my system and here is the result:

Non-free packages installed on mydebian

opera                     The Opera Web Browser

  1 non-free packages, 0.2% of 617 installed packages.

As you see, it is really just Opera but I can’t actually describe why I like it. It is simply the best internet experience.

A quote from Slashdot illustrates it quite well.

So thanks Opera for releasing your great browser.
