The Fat Lady Has Sung?

According to this CNET article, there may not be another Opera for the Mac.

Why? They claim because Apple is crowding them out with Safari.

Sorry, guys. Your version of Opera for the Macintosh was mediocre at best. With a 2.6 rating on version tracker, this sour milk gripe just makes me even less likely to try their browser.

Kudos to the Omni team for realizing their weaknesses and planning on changing their engine, not whining about Safari.

Just because we have much less software for the Mac doesn’t mean we appreciate companies that complain about someone taking market share away from their less than optimal application.
