Opera Software "Back in January we added the ability to report usage of different features and preferences so we could learn more about how the browser is used in general. First we invited you, our weekly users to help us and in 9.2 we started asking one in 100 users if they want to participate. We would like to share some of our findings with you."

Fit-to-width by default

A preference we added by popular request, the ability to turn on Fit to Width by default is used by 0.0%

Really? Wow. I always turn Fit to Width on by default. It usually doesn't mess up site layouts for me, and when it does, I just turn it off for the time being. It'd be a shame if Opera took this feature out based on this survey.

Edit: The option to "Open windows instead of tabs" (SDI if you like) is the *least* popular of all the tab options, which tells something about the popularity of tabs...

I see why this isn't popular, but I always turn it on. It's useful for keeping my ADD in check; a flood of windows in my taskbar annoys me, but I won't notice a flood of tabs in my browser until I got so many of them open it'd be faster to just close all of them. Also, this option makes it easier to bring up the transfers window when I'm downloading something and have Opera minimized.

haahah, I am the god of esoteric preferences. I'm uber-picky and hard to write software for, no doubt.
