On Second Thought… Opera On MS Is Okay

You should be careful how much you publicly dislike certain companies — especially when they dominate in certain markets. Opera, the alternative browser company, had announced last year that they would never, never, never make a mobile browser for Microsoft Smartphones. It turns out that never, never, never really equals about a year and a half. There’s just something about realizing you’re in a business and a large segment of the population wants your product… but you’re not offering it out of spite, rather than for business reasons.
