That's some of the stuff that they're working on.

Now I wouldn't say that their GUI sucks on MacOSX(just tried Opera on it today). But it could definetely need some work, and that's some of the things they're been working on for version 9.50, better integration with OS interface. Personally I really hoper they'll utilize the drawer for the sidepanel, that would make a lot of sense on IMO.

Mmm? I found it strange I was modded down…

Does that mean there are some people that find Opera's user experience on the Mac satisfactory? Is it really anyone's browser of choice on that platform. Because at the end of the day that is what counts I guess.

From my part, what I meant is that while their work is impressive, I would say (without any real data to back it up though) that their Mac user base is probably rather slim, and I bet it has quite a lot to do of the quality of the user experience with the UI in spite of it being a browser that works.

Isn't it a pity to have a heck of a car engine in a rather unatractive bodywork?
