You get the money for shilling, not for browsing:
Quote:
Opera said in a press release that it's about to open applications for someone to browse the web and share their experience online.
... I'm sure there's an implied "positive" in there just before the word "experience".


I still haven't forgotten how they abandoned Opera 12.xx. Let them rot in obscurity.

Also I bet they're looking for someone who already has a lot of online followers, what I believe they call an "influencer" nowadays. It's well known that these people get paid a lot by product manufacturers to advertise their products.

They could have at least open-sourced their old files.
