With these kinds of stunts coming from Opera at a dizzying rate, I suspect the company plans to position its flagship browser as a promotional tool for its (more profitable?) embedded product versions, such as the recently-announced Opera Mini, which it is marketing to mobile phone service providers, rather than end users.

It looks like I was right on the money. As of today, Opera is a free (as in beer) browser. Step right up.
