Opera Software Opera Software's CEO Jon S. von Tetzchner explains why they will not release the Opera browser as open source, arguing that open standards are more important than open source. Von Tetzchner also talks about the company's antitrust complaint to the European Commission in which it accuses Microsoft of abusing its dominant position by tying Internet Explorer to Windows.

I think this is a very good point. There's no way I would go for Opera whilst Firefox exists. Besides that, my decision to not choose Opera goes back well beyond Firefox's existance.

I simply do not like the way the browser looks and feels. I could probably get used to it (heck, I've gotten used to the OSNews skins) but I really couldn't be bothered.
