Opera Software and Google have renewed their partnership agreement for another two years as Google will remain the default search provider for Opera browsers.
Up until 2005, Opera was serving banner ads or subscriptions to their browser to help offset operations costs. Then, the company formed their partnership with Google, letting AdWords results in search monetize their browser. When the deal first went down, Opera expected to triple their userbase, and had enjoyed a 2-3% share of the browser market at the time.
