Free to Warble 

The Opera browser is now free without ads. I've downloaded version 8.5 and for a while imagined the red and blue flashing lights that featured in the most commonly rendered ads to still be flashing. I'm very glad they've disappeared, no doubt cruising off to an emergency that doesn't involve me. I feel like a legitimate user now. So clean!

Contrary to what some people believe, Opera works with most Web sites. I rarely visit a site and find otherwise. Tabbed windows combined with mouse gestures (open a new tabbed window with one click and swish of the mouse) easily make up for any time lost when occasionally opening a more popular browser for sites of specific-browser design.
