Internet & Networking has a review of Opera 9.5, which also includes various benchmarks for Opera, Firefox, Safari, and IE on both Windows and Linux. Linuxcom concludes: "Opera 9.5 is full to the brim with features and improvements and highly customizable. By rolling in apps such as the mail client and IRC chat application, and integrating them into a user's browsing experience, Opera 9.5 is a worthy challenger to Firefox 3. It surely has enough power and features to make it my favorite browser. If only it were free software and open source!"

I'd like to understand... what would that change for you, simple user ?

And btw, if Linux distributions weren't so close-minded, they would have more permissive licences, and including such great software as Opera in their distro wouldn't be such a problem...

Maybe the code is opened... but for sure it's not open as in "open-minded"...
