"Pushing a web browser into a crowded market that is dominated by Apple-, Mozilla- and Microsoft-branded browsers and sustain a certain traction is difficult. Just ask Google whose Chrome currently holds less than 1% market share after an initial surge. But the small Norwegian software developer Opera Software has been releasing Opera for desktop and mobile platforms for years, despite the fact that it probably has much less market share than it deserves and does not get enough credit for innovations and features it delivers. Opera 9.6 Beta 1 was recently released and shows that it is a serious contender."
