Opera Software Opera have announced the release of Opera 10 beta. New engine, new features, but I'm more concerned about where Opera 10 fits into Opera's history, and certainly their future. Opera have never made any massive strides in marketshare and is Opera 10 really going to change any of that? Read More to find out.

Your article was your opinion - I totally support your right both to have and voice your opinion.

As the saying goes "I may not like what you say but I'll defend your right to say it".

I don't think many people have a problem with the fact you have an opinion. I think the problem was with the emphasis - style over substance. Form over functionality.

E.g. I'm an Opera user (surprise surprise), as I write this I'm using 10 beta and I've tiled the display with your review in the left half and this comment in the right - a fantastic piece of functionality that comes as standard. Would I trade this for a "better" GUI or icon... no chance. A victory for function over form.

And that was the main issue with the review - function was relegated in favour of form.

I don't think any of us have a problem with you - never met you to have a problem. And I agree that maybe more of us need to contribute if possible.

Don't take it personally. You actually posted an article and it takes a bit of courage to put oneself up to be knocked down. Kudos for that.
