How did they eat the Opera? I know that it did become absolute lackluster in terms of privacy despite it's features, but I am now curious as to what exactly happened that affected it.
As for the chrome situation, I do have to agree. As comfy as Chromium engine is, it does do pose a big threat to the market, threatening the monopoly. And most people do not see it eitther, hiding behind their petty arguement of "Does not affect me" or "Got nothing to hide".
I personally wait for Midori and Falkon to improve, since they seem to use something different and are pretty promising so far, just that they lack features, but it's a matter of time before proper ones are implemented.
