Last month Opera launched an for the developer version of its desktop browser, and just last week it integrated ad-blocking into both desktop and mobile versions. Let your conscience be your guide, of course, but I think the occasional banner or inline ad is a very fair price to pay for the incredible breadth of material you get for free. The aim is to increase browser fans. At the moment, Opera is among top 5 browsers by having a big marketshare. And not just in Safari, but also in Chrome and other apps.

That's because I value all the free content I'm able to get online and know that ads pay for that content. Feel free to drop your message in the comment box below! It not only offers more and better features than most similar applications, but offers them in an elegant way. You can download it from the here.
