consumers always wins when there is competition in the market. Opera may not "move out of the basement", but it plays a critical role in shaping where the web is going

If you read the article linked, you will see that opera was the browser that suggested the "video" tag, if the the browser that gave us tabs, it was one of the first browsers that scored high in acid tests and being web compliant and embarrass those that are already "out of the basement" and we, the consumers of the web are the beneficiary



the web stagnated when IE was the only dominant browser, the web will stagnate if web browsers are reduced to only one or two ..let there be many, let them compete on how to best serve the web and let us enjoy the benefits of the competition

you may not use opera as your browser, my it simply being in existance is putting pressure on your browser of choice and you should be thankful for that because you are indirectly benefiting from it
