Opera 11

I feel bad for the Opera team, they just keep on trying, release after release to gain traction and just seem to spin their wheels. While market penetration has never really been a strong point for Opera, fans of the browser swear by it and are extremely loyal.

So while Firefox 4, Chrome 9, IE9 and Safari 6 are all in development, Opera holds the crown for the highest browser version number. Does this many iterations mean its the best browser ? No. In recent revisions its been there or there abouts when compared to the alternatives, but a couple of unique features hasn’t been enough.

This time round it actually seems like they are going against the grain of simplification by adding a complicated Menu in the top left, and a toolbar at the bottom. It does use Windows 7 Aero, but my money is still on IE9 in the browser wars.
