Why does it only matter who ships first? I don't see how a few months is going to make that much of a difference. I don't think we'll see Safari or Opera users going "oh, the other browser has 100% ACID3 compliance, I'm going to switch."


Right. Besides, Opera was the first browser to ship with tabs around version 3.6X if memory serves me right (although they were slightly different of what we see today on most web browsers, more like a MDI-style app I think) but that didn't stop the horde of clueless people giving credit to Mozilla for that.

And I have seen some people here on OSNews of all places suggest once or twice that Firefox came with that first and then Seamonkey and other browsers copied that "incredibly useful innovation", nonetheless... :|

Opera is against patents and they freely let people copy their features. A good deal of Firefox functionality and extensions are implementations of Opera-stuff.

Would be interesting if Opera was *not* against patents and held patents of all the stuff that they came up with.

Firefox(and probably other browsers as well) would be very different indeed.

Thankfully Opera instead of clinging onto patents instead try to drive forward and innovative. ;)
