Opera drops development for OpenSolaris

Okay, so kind of old news but worth mentioning all the same:

Talk about a totally retrograde move – which I hope they reconsider in the future. You’d think Opera with its groovy built-in kiosk mode feature would be a sweet match for Oracle Sun Ray; could even have been a potential revenue stream too, perhaps…

Oh well. Yet again, open source saves the day, and I’ll continue to use Firefox for an awesome and totally cross-platform browsing experience. I don’t buy into the rather fashionable view of late that it’s somehow a substandard browser; it’s plenty stable, fast and full-featured for me, Personas are fun, the selection of extensions are great, and I get the same browsing experience on myriad varieties of UNIX, Linux, Mac OS, and Windows.
