The Technical Evangelist, Daniel Goldman decided to leave Opera Software and focus on something else, “work on something new” as he said.

Thanks Daniel, best of luck for you and your new projects.

    Opera Renews Its Deal With Google

    By | October 31, 2007 | 0 Comments

    Opera, Google DealGoogle is default search engine integrated to the Opera desktop browser and will stay there for at least 2 years (that’s then this deal expires) or more.

    That means profit for both, Google and Opera.

    Google pays ~80% (77% in Q3) of each click value to its publishers. Not really sure about Opera, but that should be more than 80% I guess.

    Firefox Mobile vs. Opera Mobile

    By | October 11, 2007 | 3 Comments

    Firefox Mobile vs. Opera MobileYou might think that it’s too early to write topics like “Firefox Mobile vs. Opera Mobile” (but it’s not), I bet there would be pretty much of them really soon.

    We don’t have many details about Firefox Mobile, however, I think that Opera’s Mobile team should be worried already, not because of the features but because Firefox Mobile will be free open-source mobile web browser while Opera Mobile isn’t free or either an open source product.

    Lets’ check finances. Opera Mobile makes good money for the Opera Software. How will it affect Opera’s earnings after Firefox Mobile release? No one knows yet.

    Opera Software already made a mistake once; Opera was a paid browser some time ago, later they have decided to make it free, “bit too late” I would say. As a result, Opera’s market share is still very low; some still thinks that Opera is a paid browser. What about Opera Mobile? Will they make it free as Firefox Mobile is coming? Or will they wait till Firefox Mobile is being released so could see if it’s a “real” competitor or not? Let’s sit and wait.
