With the launch of Opera 11.50, curious users can now track Opera downloads “live”.
However, don’t get too excited as this is not an actual live tracker. Instead, it’s just a script to trick you into believing that this counter is tracking something. Like:
var spot = 350736,rate = 8. Obviously, Opera Software did not say anything other than:
This record was beaten as part of our counter to measure the amount of Opera 11.50 downloads.
So here you have it folks, no live tracking, welcome to the age of false marketing.
