Mozilla & Gecko clones Mozilla has already done a lot to clean up the user interface of its successful web browser, but it would seem they're not yet done. As someone who finds the current interface a little... Chaotic and distracting, I'm quite happy with the changes they're currently proposing. They basically pointed at Chrome and said "pretty much that".

I don't know he looks Scandinavian in his profile pic. Opera started in Norway and was a hit in the Nordic countries due to the different language versions.

Heck, I'm a US citizen and I was using Opera in mid 1997. The lab computers were stuck with Netscape 2 ( Netscape 4 was already out), and I didn't have admin privileges to install anything. I could install opera ( opera 2.x? don't remember) to a 1.44 mb floppy and take it from computer to computer. It was lightening fast compared to Netscape (2,3, or eventually 4) on those computers.

Yeah, I realize looking back how much of an ass I made of myself there. I think I'm going to stop posting from work, where I'm always bitter and tired. Not an excuse by the way.

I had forgotten that Opera used to fit on a floppy! That was one of those things that piqued my interest when I first started using it.

Eh, it happens to the best of us. Thanks for being honourable enough to own up to a grumpy mood. Even the best of us aren't saints 24/7.
