What an odd assumption to make when you've just released a major update. Silly Opera. Could the ballot screen have contributed? Absolutely. But I don't think nearly as much as Opera suspects. This is just an easy way to spin some PR based on the new ballot screen. Some companies annoy me.

I would advise everybody never to use opera because their company is a big hypocrite...

They were the most annoying complainers to the european union over the ballot for browsers, even though they had the smallest market share. They complain about internet explorer taking away their innovation, even though their innovation wasn't any higher after the ballot. They don't deserve to be in the top five. They are hypocritical because they complain about other companies stealing their innovation. Then, they didn't have any innovation........

Maybe hypocritical shouldn't be used here? Maybe just annoying, cheating, exploitive, and dirty

Opera was the annoyingest though, since firefox actually has a reason. Hmm, perhaps my memory fails me but I thought opera was the one that complained more, not firefox. In any case, both firefox and opera were the major complainers but opera was just there to exploit.

That description would be apt for many software companies...


If I boycotted a companies product solely due to those reasons, I wouldn't be using a computer at all.
