Opera Software This is old news, but only just crossed my radar! Opera have made available a pre-alpha version of Opera 10.5. There's a massive amount of change under the hood, and I caught wind via taranfx.com.

If Opera's UI is so bad, why does everyone else keep copying it?

Mozilla folks think it's the opposite: http://design-noir.de/log/2009/12/opera-firefox-ui/

For the last time, Opera has that button menu on the top left system for a very long time. Long before it was introduced for Mozilla 4. They just makes it the default settings.

Try playing around with the settings of the softwares you are using sometimes.

That's because the Mozilla people are evidently retarded. A leaked version of the Opera pre-alpha was released two days before the Firefox UI mockups were posted. So if anything, Mozilla stole from Opera. Again.

And the Mozilla mockup goes back to December. http://design-noir.de/log/2009/12/opera-firefox-ui/#comment-14680

What matters more than "who killed who" is consensus. The more apps that adopt the idea, the better.

You can't steal ideas.
