    I think 8 for mac is a way of yet. When I was there jan/feb 04 they'd only just gotten java on the mac beta of 7 :p

    I'm pretty sure I can survive without Opera8 for now... well, forever.

    As for the super-hero guy, I wonder what the hell they were thinking when it was decided it would be a good idea not only to humiliate the poor guy by making him dress up like that and take pics, but also to use that on their front page. :D :p

    Probably thinking of something just damn silly that would bring them traffic. I think it has worked, how many clicked the link that hadn't been to the site before because they wanted to check it out because they hadn't already seen it?

    I especially like the press release...that's one heck of a challenge! I mean, I'm not even sure if it's physically possible :)

    Nobody on the Opera development office here seems to know where that guy comes from or why. Must be the marketing people in Norway. ;)
