Oslo, Norway-based Opera Software ASA on Tuesday announced that it’s giving away complimentary registration codes for its Opera Web browser for 24 hours on Tuesday, August 30, 2005. The giveaway is to celebrate Opera’s 10th anniversary.
Opera costs nothing to download and use, but unless a registration code is entered, the software displays advertisements. By filling out your e-mail address on the 10-Year Online Anniversary Web site, you get registration codes for each of the desktop operating systems opera supports, including Mac OS X, Windows, FreeBSD, Solaris, and three flavors of Linux.
Opera features pop-up blocking, tabbed browsing, integrated searching on Google, Amazon and eBay, e-mail, RSS newsfeed support and IRC chat. The browser’s interface can be customized with new “skins” as well.
The current version of Opera works on Mac OS X v10.2 or later.
