Opera Software "Opera 10 beta 3 was released Wednesday for Windows, Mac, and Linux users. With a strong European following, the preview version has been able to keep this popular alternative browser competitive by offering page rendering quality comparable to Google Chrome, while offering a robust list of features."

Member since:

One of the things I like about Opera is that it is closed-source. I haven't bought into the open-source philosophy. In general, I have found that the average quality of the closed-source programs I have tried is higher than the average quality of the open-sourced programs.

EDIT: This comment was a knee-jerk reaction. I still think it is true, but I would like to clarify by saying that there are some very high-quality open-source programs out there. I would include LLVM and WebKit as examples of quality open-source software.
