Some time ago there were some Mozilla bashing regarding users tracking and disrespect. Well, today I’d like to criticize Opera Software a bit.
Let’s begin with the quote from Opera’s Vision page:
We believe in respect for our users.
… Opera Software will never forget that its main focus is the user.
Why I’m posting that? If Opera’s main focus is user but not money (Google and Opera special search deal), then why they are doing something like this:
I meant, if you were a software developer and respect your users… Would you block them from using their favorite search engine as a default one? Wouldn’t you respect their own choice for a default search provider? By default one, I meant the one which is in the top.
