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/
"
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.

The Mozilla mockup did not appear until two days after Opera 10.5 was leaked. They may have been presented at a Mozilla meeting, but I seriously doubt that people from Opera are attending internal Mozilla meetings!

Never mind the fact that the button is already in Opera 10.0, only disabled by default.

You can't steal ideas.

Wow, your nitpicking sure defeated my point! I'm sure you understand what I was saying. Copying/stealing/whatever. Point is: Mozilla are assholes for trying to be funny and pretending like Opera was following their lead, when all the evidence points to the opposite.
