Here's an interesting browser speed test for you to check out by Lifehacker... They seem to test all major browsers (almost all in beta) and compare them up against each other. Interesting to note the lack of Opera 10 alpha. If most comparrisons are based on Safari 4 (beta) and Firefox 3 (.1 beta 2), then shouldn't Opera 10 also be tested, or? What's your take on it?

Being the "little guy" clearly has its pros and cons. Opera does not write publicly about other browsers interpreting its innovations, but when competitors present themselves as the original creators of some browser features (omg!), well... You know, something's not right, ye?
Anyway, this has been the cause of controversy in blogs and forums lately, and we're not interested in starting a flame war or whine about it (because whining sucks), but it's good to see that you continue to support Opera rightfully for its creativity and passion for evolving the Web.
An article by Dustin Wilson looks at how features implemented in Opera has been implemented in other browsers over the years — claiming to be first:It’s interesting for me to see over the period of the past few years where browsers which have more users are ripping off features that Opera invented, sometimes over a decade ago. It’s not that they shouldn’t. They should because it makes their browsers more useful. My browser of choice is Opera. I don’t roll any bones about it. I don’t have a superiority complex about my browser of choice; it’s just better than everything else.
What's your take on it? Do you follow or care who's first, or is it more a matter of proper implementation?

This comparison from Nplus shows the new Opera developed Web Channel on the DSi vs. the older Nintendo DS Browser that Opera developed for Nintendo some years ago. Once downloaded, it becomes a part of the main menu of the system.
The Opera browser for DSi will be a free download from the DS store.
Thanks for the first preview of the DSi, Nplus! Keep 'em coming!

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.
