    Default Irrelevant

    Opera is irrelevant, less than 1% of web users use it.
    It's not open source.

    Desktop Linux requires a bunch of blob-only firmware for various free drivers to work properly.


    Moral: don't play with numbers when your favourite operating system don't even have them to begin with.

    where u take that 1%? its more like 5% i think
    but anyhow. its the best browser out there so far imo.
    its fast as chrome and doesnt have limited features like chrome does.

    matter of taste probably.
    and who cares if its opensource or not. if it works good then its good.

    lol pwned.

    I myself am an opera user. I'm personally glad it isn't open source, because its one of those projects where open sourcing it would cause more problems than it would fix. The opera team has the motivation of a community and listens to its users, but if they let the community join the development then i feel like it might slow them down. Although, it could take the same route as Chrome and Chromium.

    Oh really? So it just HAS to be open source?
    And good job commenting on a Linux benchmarks website about USAGE SHARE.
