"Oh, give it up already. Not even slashdot trolls make comments like that anymore. This is a comparison of two software products, side by side, not a silly religious war."
It's always convenient to make it look like a religious war isn't it? The reality is that picking a martket drug for something as necessary as a web broweser is entirely lame and far from pragmatic. Not considering the long term effects of a decision does not make you pragmatic. Putting blind faith on some random company to keep releasing a browser for free, does NOT make you pragmatic. Should opera remain closed source it will be considered an equivalent to internet explorer, the only difference is that Microsoft didn't make it.
