Opera Software Last week, the European Commission announced that Microsoft is willing to implement a browser ballot screen in Windows so that users can select a browser to install when installing Windows or when setting up their OEM computer. While this makes Opera very happy, Opera would like to see Ubuntu and Apple offer such a ballot screen too.

True, for the desktop version...now. For the longest time it was ad-supported unless you paid for a license.

Haven't tried Opera Mobile or Mini so I don't know how good they are, but I gave up on the desktop version's cluttered default UI. Sure, I could customize it, but frankly I had very little incentive for doing so.

Firefox is a RAM hog, but at least the default UI makes sense to me. Wouldn't use Firefox without any extensions, though.
