Opera Software Opera Software is making plans to steal market share from Microsoft. Though a launch date for Opera 10 hasn't yet been set, Opera is hoping the updated application will lure users away from Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7 by building on Opera 9's use of small Web applications called widgets.

Beating IE7

Opera developers don't need to rush Opera 10 to beat IE7, Opera 9 does a good enough job of doing that already.

I'm not sure about the emphasis on widgets. They can be useful, but I don't see them as a killer feature that's likely to get many people to switch browser. I hope Opera don't neglect the core browser functionality to focus on widgets.
