if you want to see the features that other Web browsers will be adding in a year or two, you should download Opera 9

When I wrote the browser, people were using documents with wizzywig editors, so I really assumed that what people were going to use for preparing content was wizzywig, or what you see is what you get.
So that's why I made it an editor and I was really surprised when on platforms which didn't have wizzywig editors, that people were prepared to go to the trouble of learning all the angle brackets and doing the html.
If you look at some of the things that people are doing with AJAX, they're very much data-driven applications. They're things like Google Maps and all the mash-ups built off of that. That will be based on data interactivity capabilities, and that's what the Symantec web is about, allowing people much more power to access data and combine it.
Maybe it's because Symantec is so close to their heart, being a big sponsor of the site and all...
It doesn't help that they don't mention Opera at all in the article on the future of the browser (somehow they manage to publish a couple of related and partially duplicating articles on browsers at the same time).
