Norwegian browser Opera aims to topple reigning Internet Explorer

,----[ Quote ]
| No. 1 in Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Belarus. 
| It might not be a slogan to attract an 
| avalanche of American Internet users, but the 
| Norwegian company that makes the fastest Web 
| browser you've never heard of sees a major 
| opportunity in the United States and the rest 
| of the world.


Firefox vs. Opera

,----[ Quote ]
| When it comes to surf the Internet, most 
| people simply does not care for the browser, 
| for example Internet Explorer 6, which until 
| recently remained as one of the most 
| frequently used browser, even appearing to 
| security breaches and slowdown evident. While 
| Microsoft continues its dominance in the world 
| of browsers, competitors weight as Firefox, 
| Opera and most recently the Google Chrome 
| occupy increasingly users.
| [...]
| While in HTML5 test, Mozilla has obtained a 
| score higher on tests that examine the 
| programâs compatibility with navigation in 
| pages that use the HTML 5 (139 points against 
| 129 of Opera, for a total of 300 possible). In 
| addition to the 10 points do not represent any 
| difference, the HTML 5 is still not something 
| widespread and most sites do not work with 
| this system.

| fixes, improvements to X11 mode, and the KDE 
| file selector freeze is fixed. 


Opera moves Dragonfly to Apache for patent promise

,----[ Quote ]
| Opera has switched its Dragonfly open source
| debug tool to an Apache 2.0 license to
| include a promise that users are protected
| from patents owned by Opera or any other
| contributor to the project.

| tool - completed its open sourcing in
| February, when it was moved from Opera
| servers to BitBucket. It was originally
| under the BSD license.
