Just 48 hours after Opera Software removed the ads and license fee from its popular Web browser, Opera 8.5 has been downloaded by over 1 million people, the company has reported.
Opera's new freeware status puts added pressure on Microsoft's aging Internet Explorer and even Mozilla Firefox, which soared to popularity as a free alternative to IE 6.
Opera says the majority of downloaders were IE users.
Great going Opera! If you are lagging behind then you also download the latest version of Opera and be with the world!
