Opera Software You all know that I don't particularly like Opera. I find the product to be lacking polish, over-complicated and without the marketing pizazz that has made Firefox a household name. That's just my personal opinion, and that opinion has garnered many complaints of unjustness. To that end, to present a fairer discussion I would like to put a simple question to the community: "What should Opera do?".

Perhaps because this "proprietary" is not such a hellhound that certain parties make it out to be?

Perhaps because not all are crazy about pushing (mediocre) Linux?

Perhaps because some people like Opera?

Just don't expect any gratitude. If Opera had IE's market share Opera Software wouldn't be so shy as Microsoft has been. They'd be pushing for laws in various countries to forbid the use of dangerous, nonstandard, non-Opera browsers. Opera Software and its cronies are nothing if not flagrantly presumptuous in their marketing ambitions.
