Wow, so this proves that people really WERE stupid enough to not realize they had choices.

"It’s fair to say that a tripling of Opera’s downloads may not amount to much..."  That sentence made me chuckle, because when I read the headline I thought, "two more people downloaded Opera and tripled the downloads?"

 The users will go back to Internet Explorer. This happens all the time when offering a new or upgraded browser (i.e. Bing) It will be a splash for a while then everyone goes back to Firefox or Chrome. 

 I think Chrome is the only real threat to IE and Firefox as Google is making changes and improving the experience a hell of a lot faster than MS or Mozilla.

Bing is a search engine. Not a web browser. 

 

Google is very frustrated that people don't know the difference.

Yeah, I hear you.  Chrome really is improving fast.  Hopefully it will continue to improve at this pace even if it increases to surpass FF's market share.  However, Opera does have a hell of a lot of good features.  It takes a bit to get used to, but it is quite good.  If extensions were done the same way they are in FF and Chrome in opera I'd probably use it a lot more.

Well that is just it. Opera wasn't necessarily designed to be able to have more extensions than one can

shake a stick at. It's whole purpose, especially now with "opera unite", is to be the equivalent of an unknown

form of Facebook with a light footprint that gets the job done.

 

With that being said however, if Opera really did want more people they should implement the extensions the same way Firefox and chrome do.

 

Opera user btw.
