Lovin' the classic 1994-era home page design
I've got Opera installed but I just use it to test.
Happy b'day anyway.

Thanks Opera! We know many of the "modern" features of IE and even some of FF first appeared in Opera.
Been a user since about 97 I believe version 2 dot something...
The early builds were awesome up to 3.62. Then they decided to do the work of the w3c instead of the customer/user and it's been downhill ever since. That said, it still kicks Firefoxes and ie's butt.
It went right where the animated loading graphic was, or maybe that is what they replaced it with. When did they take that out?
You know it would be cool if they did something like that again but instead of ads coming from Opera it would be cool if all ads from a web page were collected and put into an ad spot in the browser not in the web page itself.

Even with a bajillion extensions and tweaks to the about:config file, Firefox cannot match Opera's usability for my needs.
Happy Birthday, Opera. May your profits continue to increase!
The advertisements you saw were in the free version of the browser. Those of us who paid didn't see the ads at all.
Like tedster, Opera is my primary browser. It saves me time and makes my work on the net go smoother. FF and IE simply don't compare.
Happy B-day Opera...even if I'm a little late. ;)
