Opera Software You all know that I don't particularly like Opera. I find the product to be lacking polish, over-complicated and without the marketing pizazz that has made Firefox a household name. That's just my personal opinion, and that opinion has garnered many complaints of unjustness. To that end, to present a fairer discussion I would like to put a simple question to the community: "What should Opera do?".

Why help a proprietary company?

Why do I want to help a proprietary company with a mediocre product gain market share?! I'll be glad to help push an open source product that has neat features, but why a proprietary company? I can't get any sense of why I would want to push them into any prominence when it would only help their bottom-line.

I push Linux (non-commercial versions), Firefox, OpenOffice, etc. to try to help others see the value of free and very good products. But why Opera?
