Yesterday Opera Software and BrightCloud, Inc. have announced a partnership which would increase security as well as allow web operators to filter content viewed by Opera Mini users.

If the charges stick, then Microsoft could be forced to change the way it distributes IE, as well as pay a fine for monopoly abuse.
