Wow, an amazing find!  Thanks tinyvillager.

Just have to wait another 20 minutes for 12:00am PDT and I'm firing a message off....  Wink

Edit: OK, the message was sent and by the look of it, it isn't an automated system so may take a while to get any key through.  I'd hate to be the person on the receiving end of all of those mails.

Stefan, I feel you have the right approach as I still have no reply back from my mails.

I do however have a nice new shiny licence key from the Opera Party key generator that went online at about 3:20 CET.  Although, I wont comment on some of the 'interesting' side effects that were present during the first couple of minutes.  Wink

Thanks Opera!  Despite a few short-comings with your browser in the past, I'm poised to resume my relationship with your product.

For anyone who has never tried or even heard of Opera, now would be an ideal time to experience one of the most mature and well respected browsers on the market.  The only reason why Opera has never been as hyped as Firefox is down to price, and if you act quickly today, that will no longer be an issue.

For anyone that now has Opera installed, there is some really interesting chat on IRC (which you can do via Opera on /server irc.opera.com Channel: #OperaParty) going on from the CEO and CTO of the company.  You'll need to hurry though as it may be over soon....

It'll annoy a lot of people if they do!

Don't you think they have discovered they are fighting a losing battle if they are going to charge for something that is available for free from lots of other sources - how much do you bet that within the next year Opera will be a free or donation based download.

  Very true,i use firefox,and use Opera from time to time and always thought it would catch fire
if the price (if not free)should at least be in the range of 20 bucks or less.Charging 39 dollars
to browse the web when you've already invested your monthly ISP charge,etc.,well like you
said it's a loosing battle.

Yes $39 is a lot when the competition is free.  I'd be pretty annoyed if I'd purchased it over the weekend.  Somebody must have.  ohmy

Me too. I got a free version 7 in spring from german pc mag c't and could upgrade to v8 for less money.
If i would use O on a regularly base, i had buy it, but i don't.
If i had buy it 3 months ago (and don't use it) and now i had become a licence for free,... that would be... (hold on, i look in my translater...)

i'm sure it was a hard decision for opera, but given the competition from firefox and ie, i guess they had no choice.
well let's wish them luck!
