“It’s better to give than to receive, so why not give that special someone a new browser,” says Jan Standal, VP of desktop products at Opera Software. “People spend more time working with their browser than they do with their car, so it makes sense to shop around and consider their options. If your best friend drove a Yugo, you’d help them find something else, right?”

Using yet another car analogy, Standal continues: “If we were a car, this browser would be an extremely potent, yet comfortable, four-by-four. Sleek and stylish, and with no CO2 emissions whatsoever, your neighbors will envy you.”

Four things to look forward to in Opera 11.60:
