Chrome will always win the version race, they are at 19 now.
And if you haven't played with Opera in "years", be prepared for a drastic change from what you remember it being. It's been my primary browser since 2005, so I'm a little biased when I say it's the overall best browser available. But honestly, I might not be far off.
Regarding why Opera has a terrible market share, don't blame the browser... blame the marketing department! :)
