One of the most interesting statements from their financial documents is that, "the company has raised approx. EUR 10 million in new equity from financial investors" since 1999 and that, "Opera has clearly stated that it will seek a public listing, and that such a listing most likely will take place in late 2003 or 2004."
In my opinion one can learn a lot by looking at the way Opera`s management have run the company through theese turbulent years; and they have survived in spite of tough cometition.
My personal browser preferences though are Mozilla first, second Opera. I am using IE for testing purposes only and while surfing the company's intranet (that I have not designed, else you could surf it with Mozi and Opera too ;)). Opera is a MUST since years for every serious webdesigner and I'm happy to hear they might stay a must for years to come. (I believe that competition in the browser market is nothing but good, as long as the browser makers understand the need for standards like html, css and so on.)
So they have many streams to work with, but percentages are never talked about that I know of. I'd assume pc sales of browsers would be one of their smaller rev streams and the biggest would be the phone/small screen sales.
I suspect I'm in the minority here. :)
