it seems that anything they touch turns into a huge success. However, browsers are a different breed and unless they go with an existing web rendering engine (our prediction is Gecko), it would be tough thing to do…
i hope they buy opera.. i like google.. they are one of the best companies out there and it is one of the few companies that actually cares about it's users..and hey i got one more little box thing under my name seems i am a "BOND" now.. cool, where's my aston martin..
i started using opera some time back but never got around to being comfortabe with it's interface.. love it or hate it, ie has the best and uncomplicated interface out there.. and ditto for firefox.. firefox is like a dream come true.. none of ie's bugs.. as fast (or faster ? ) as opera and free to top it all .. firefox rules!
try the latest p3. it has got an excellent interface. and don't tell me you found yourself at home with linux the moment u saw it.and if you try out M2 and understand what it is, you will love it. same with IRC client.
