I have been using Opera for many years now, and it´s probably my favorite browser. Well, I use several browsers. Both Firefox and Safari are good, but I always come back to Opera, and not because the company is Norwegian 🙂 Today you can actually get rid of the ads in this great browser, no more cracking – just get the registration codes now.
