    Question Opera 7 is spyware? Or is this old news?

    Caution, very coarse language (in fact, moderators can delete this if deemed inappropriate; let's just say that the defendant is really mad!)

    Opera is clean, period. About as close as they come to spyware, is at one time they used the servers of "Cydoor" to serve ads, Cydoor themselves were pretty bad at one time but have made attempts to clean up their act. Though the Cydoor servers were used to serve ads the Cydoor technology (yuk) was not used.

    Kinda thought so.....

    It'd be kinda suicide for the Opera folks to even consider it.
