Opera Software Jon S. von Tetzchner has been with Opera for a long time - in fact, he co-founded the browser maker back in 1995, and led the company to great success; the desktop version may play a niche role, the various mobile versions surely do not. Today though, he has announced he will be leaving the company due to differences with the board and management.

I'm pretty sure Firefox's success has more to do with the combination of a few things: the projects initial focus on making a browser for "mom and pop", it's popup-blocking feature, being a free application, it's warm non-corporate feel, it's viral marketing campaigns and people being fed up with Internet Explorer.

Why "initial" focus ? Don't you think that Firefox continues to have a focus on clean UIs and usability ?

I mean, if there's one browser which I find clean and dead easy to use and configure, it's really Firefox (Safari being more or less on an equal footing, which is normal considering that they have heavily taken inspiration from the FF UI)
