After months of uncertainty, an upgrade to Opera’s browser for the Mac will be released on Thursday Neowin.net reports.
“‘We’ve decided to stay and fight on the Mac platform,’ Opera Software representative Pal Hvistendahl wrote in an e-mail. ‘Tomorrow we are releasing a new version for the Mac.’ Opera is a private company in Oslo, Norway, that for years has stood its ground against browser titan Microsoft and open-source alternative Mozilla. In January the company was caught off-guard when Apple Computer released its Safari browser based on the open-source KHTML code. At the time, Opera Chief Executive Jon von Tetzchner warned that continued development of Mac Opera–which commands a small percentage of Opera’s already tiny market share–might not be ‘viable’ with Apple becoming yet another competitor. Apple responded by calling Opera’s complaints ‘sour grapes,'” Neowin reports. Full article here.
Note: Neowin reports, “The Mac Opera coming out Thursday, version 6.02, does not yet belong to the new generation of Opera browsers.”
