Opera 10 years – and gives away birthday presents

It’s already all over the net: Opera is turning 10 years, and at the party today they’re giving away birthday presents to their users: Free registration codes! What a pleasant surprise. 🙂

Of course, while this is the most exciting news at the party, there’s also nice music to listen to, sung and compiled by Opera employees. IRC logs of the chat with Jon von Tetzchner, HÃ¥kon Wium Lie and Trond Werner Hansen will probably be up all over too soon, for those who didn’t attend or want to read it nicely formatted. There’s pictures and film from the Opera party, and a trip down memory lane with pictures of how Opera has evolved through the versions.

But it’s still not over: While the registration code giveaway will only last for a day, there’s an anniversary competition, too:

Share your birthday wishes with Opera and win a prize! Use your imagination – the more creative the better. Write a poem, haiku, a story, draw a picture or just something fun. Our 100 favorite submissions will be shared with the Opera community and the winners will receive a super-cool Opera t-shirt!

The submissions for this is due September 6th. See more details at the page.
