Read on in the full article.

One day all browsers will work this way, or at least be capable of working this way.

I'm very curious, with all their browsers being free and Opera themselves having to bear the costs for servers compressing the data (as in Opera mini);
How do they make their money ?

Network traffic generated as a result of use of Opera generates revenue for the network providers, and in turn they pay a bit to Opera Software. Additionally Opera earn a bit by having Google as the default search, generating money through google.

They used to be add funded + freemium but have changed their model.

The lack of bandwidth available to mobile users in those countries is probably the only reason why OMini is so popular out there. In western Europe and most parts of the US, most people I know use Opera Mobile or another full fledged browser. Using Opera Mini in the US is like buying a Ferrari and then trundling along at 10 on an interstate with zero traffic.
