lol, there was no argument on my part. I was merely stating the way it is

All companies do what they can to gain marketshare, conversely all companies that have the marketshare will do all they can to retain it.

So If I said I loved opera ? I think they feel under appreciated and want to be noticed? There browser is pretty good. Not number 1 but pretty good. I mostly use it for its mouse gesture with right and left clicking for forward or backwards on the web. Speed dial is nice too? Someone want to convert me?

lol, I'm not trying to convert anybody, I'm just saying that their company was horribly annoying >.< thats all....Im totally being kicked around for saying something bad about opera..=.=. I wasn't wanting to start a war or something .-. I just wanted to say, nobody uses Opera, so they pinpoint all their blame on microsoft. Even after microsoft relented, their marketshare is still low (netapplications.com) Now they have nobody to blame but themselves >

Sounds more like Microsoft or Intel to me.

Hmmm...it seems to me that from 3 downloads to 9 downloads is 'triple'.

I wonder who the other 8 were. I just downloaded 10.5 Final to check it out. No opinion yet, still trying to get my FF bookmarks over to it.

Me neither

Maybe it's because I already have all of the top five "ballot Browsers" on my machine

Oh and by the way - the browser I use as first choice is opera

I was a long term Firefox user but made the switch about a year ago due to the excessive memory usage
