Mayank, why did you say that you wish Opera were free? It already is, and has been so always. It used to be ad-supported a few years ago, but even that is no longer the case.
Also, with all due request, software doesn't become necessarily superior or better simply by being open source. In my experience, every successful open source application has needed a dedicated team of developers who make a huge bulk of the contribution, just like any successful proprietary software application. There isn't really that much difference as long as the software is engineered correctly and thus performs well.
