"With the beta release of their browser for Linux, the folks at
Opera Software hope to get input from the Open Source community,
and ultimately, hope Opera will hook Linux users enough that
they're willing to pay for it."
"The Linux version of Opera, a browser which has won over some
Windows users with its speed and small size, was released as beta
last week, and is available for download at the Opera site. In
addition to multiple bug reports on the Opera for Linux discussion
list, the browser has also been getting some positive reviews. One
user wrote: 'It was worth waiting for; I love it! Great work,
folks! I've decided that I will *definitely* be purchasing the
commercial version when it is released.'..."
"The company also feels a kinship with those in the Open Source
community who advocate following sets of standards to develop
software, he said. Opera has worked hard to stick to the HTML
standard, which eliminates the problem for Web site developers of
making pages "best viewed" with one of the popular browsers."
