Opera Software I'm not sure if such a thing exists anymore (what, with both Firefox and Chrome doing the release-all-the-time thing), but browser season 2012 has been opened! Opera 12 has just been released, bringing with it all sorts of updates and improvements. She may not be the most popular of the pack, but she sure has the most loyal fanbase.

What insanity and what do you mean by 'version inflation'? Seems perfectly sane and typical to me.

Personally, I hate date based release numbers because they feel forced. What I mean is that most commercial programs that use date based versions are:

A) released prior to the year that they reference and

B) use date based versioning to coerce users to upgrade because they perceive the age of the software.

(example: AutoCAD 2012 - and every yearly release - is released in the summer prior, in this case 2011)

The insanity with version inflation of other browsers...

(and the non-date release numbers don't feel often forced by PR? At least dates are impartial)
