The web on a wing and a prayer…

Seeing as the Opera browser is now available for free, I was wondering how they are going to make money. I know that they are already in discussions with various mobile phone manufacturers about making Opera the browsing software for phones, but now it appears they are taking to the skies.

What a great idea. After all, in-flight movies are OK for some, but the ability to check emails, browse the web and even manage websites would be fantastic for loads of people*. Especially through a standards-compliant browser like Opera.

* Presuming loads of people are like me. Which is, frankly, a scary thought.
