"Good news for Linux users who love the Opera Web browser: After being snubbed for a big chunk of the pre-10.50 release cycle, Opera has finally started putting out snapshots for all platforms, including Linux.

The company seems to be putting quite a bit of polish on its desktop browsers to build on the momentum, and Opera is even taking a shot at getting its mobile browser on the iPhone platform.
