Internet & Networking Linux.com 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!"

Opera *IS* free, have you to pay anything prior to download and install ? Is the app feature and/or time limited ? Nope !

Open source ? What's for, Opera have led the browsing experience to such an extend no other so-called 'open-source' software have ! Compare what is comparable : Opera is not open-source, but is sleek, fast, reliable, full featured, unlike Firefox that had to come to version 3 to implement what's common in Opera since 7. So what's the benefit of open-sourcing if software enhancement just crawls...

Ho, and by the way, all the "I don't rely proprietary code" stuff is just non-sense : nVidia drivers, Opera browser, ... ain't considered as an issue on the Windows world, why would it be on the 'open-source' FOSS ? This is plain gross...
