"In a challenge to Microsoft Corp.'s Internet Explorer and AOL
Time Warner Inc.'s Netscape browser, Opera Software SA recently
made its browser-Opera 5 beta 6 for Linux-available in an
ad-sponsored (free) version."
"And though the browser market is virtually all sewn up with
Microsoft supplanting Netscape as the top draw, Opera claims to
have the fastest full-featured browser available...."
"The private company reports 1.5 million paid downloads since
1995. In January, it announced that 2 million copies of Opera 5 for
Windows had been downloaded worldwide since its release on Dec.
"Despite the difficulties of breaking into such a tight market,
analysts believe there is room for another, better browser.
Netscape is weakening, and there is a simmering anti-Microsoft
sentiment, especially among professional users."
