Opera becomes free for university students

The Opera browser is now available for free at higher education establishments after Opera Software said it would waive its small 50p per user licence fee.

Opera chief executive officer Jon von Tetzchner said the move was designed to address the concerns of colleges and universities about internet security threats.

Opera is promoting certain features in Opera which could prove valuable to students, including the browser’s saved sessions feature, which can be used for researching various topics on the web.

Opera said Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard University, and Oxford University are already making Opera available to students.

Colleges interested in Opera's free site licence should visit www.opera.com/education
