Opera Software Last week, the European Commission announced that Microsoft is willing to implement a browser ballot screen in Windows so that users can select a browser to install when installing Windows or when setting up their OEM computer. While this makes Opera very happy, Opera would like to see Ubuntu and Apple offer such a ballot screen too.

Even on OSNews, a technicaly inclined site, Opera is trailing badly, especially taking into account it's being overrun by newcomers:

58% Firefox
11% Safari
9% Internet Explorer
7% Chrome
7% Mozilla
5% Opera

A technically inclined site where the Firefox cheerleading doesn't come from just from the crowd but the article posters.

It's actually the major reason I hardly visit and moreso hardly post on this site anymore: the ridiculous level of can-do-no-wrong cheerleading that goes for Mozilla here is beyond the pale. Now it appears to be more and more added with negativity towards - in particular - Opera.

That is funny, as I dislike Firefox - and any other Mozilla product - maybe even more than Opera.

This is completely irrelevant to the case. That a specialist site which is a cheerleading site for Firefox differs in usage patterns from other sites is hardly strange.
