Opera Software Opera Mini 3.0 was released today (get it here). Major new features include camera support, RSS feed reader, SSL and https support, content folding, and speed improvements. Screenshot here. Today we also celebrate here at OSNews the first hits of the Opera-based Wii browser (via a proxy hack to allow generic web browsing) and the Sony PS3 browser. We would be grateful if you could snap a picture of your TV with your gaming console rendering OSNews and send us an email with it or post a link below.

I think I remember what you are talking about. When I tried Opera back in the 90's I remember sites recognizing my browser as IE. I think the answer to that is here:
Here is an excerpt:
"...Opera came preconfigured to partially "cloak" itself as Internet Explorer..."

That's because Opera USED TO report its user agent as IE. Too many sites sniffed the agent and displayed crappy sub-functional pages to non-IE browsers back then. Thins have changed quite a bit, thanks in large part to Firefox.

Subsequently, a year or two ago, the default user agent string was changed to properly report itself as Opera.
