If you use Opera Mini on your mobile devices, you may have noticed that Opera has started showing interstitial ads recently, at least on the Android platform. These ads appear quite often and block your browsing. Unfortunately, there is no way to opt-out of these interstitial advertisements. Here are few screenshots of such ads:
Opera already shows sponsored speed dial items on the new tab page, promoting its partner sites and its own mobile app store, which is acceptable but these interstitial advertisements are quite annoying.
Of course, the Opera Software is not running a charity, and ad revenue is required to fund its server-side data compression feature.
