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.

Yeah, I use Opera as my only browser (as in, I don't even have any other ones installed), and I'm a little disappointed with the stability in 9. I use the weekly builds, so I don't expect the greatest stability, but it seems the 9(.01) release was less stable than some of the weekly builds. They probably should have waited a week or two to get the bugs out.

I don't use widgets at home, but at work I use a clock and calender so I can get rid of the taskbar in Windows.

I agree they're probably not the killer feature, but they make sense in certain situations. I have my browser open 99% of the time anyway, so might as well conserve resources.
