Opera is not

Opera is not convincing.

Mozilla Firefox and other browsers erode the market share of Internet Explorer despite the roadblocks. I heard they took around 10% to 25% of the market.

This is not a monopoly controlling the market, this is a monopoly that is losing its prominence and control over the market.

Dont' forget though...


Don't forget that Microsoft might gain that market share again.
Plus, all of the market share is from people actively installing Firefox or people buying an Apple. Windows comes with Explorer, and that's where MOST of that 80% comes from.

Microsoft COULD at this point make sure that IE8 is really complaint, give IE good development tools, and then... play a little trick for IE9.

We need to watch out.
