According to an article on Lifehacker dated back early in December Opera was listed as one of the most underhyped application of 2008, which was a great year for the Norwegian browser company with many product releases. Worth mentioning is their praise of Opera users (which we all know to be true):
"While our current browser stats show usage numbers that trail behind newcomer Chrome, Opera users are almost religious about their love for the free browser."
There are also other great software products listed which all deserve a spotlight.
You can vote, leave comments and help support Opera on their Web site - get all the juice on Lifehacker.
Kudos starcatcher66 for bringing this article to our attention. Keep 'em coming!

A Dutch site called "Avencius" is running a poll asking its readers what browser they're looking most forward to in 2009. It's cool to see that more than 80% say that Opera 10 is the browser they're looking most forward to.
Thanks to Chas4 for bringing this browser poll to our attention.
