  1. Good place to ask – what do you think (everybody and nobody) about this Opera’s avalanche thing (Up North Web) ?? Any ideas?? Inside confidential info??

      My ideas:
      1. my.opera redesign – unlikely, because there was no open beta tests yet and previous my.opera changes didn’t get any ‘special’ pages. Also keywords on that webpage suggest that there will be press conference so it’s propably be something new.
      2. Dragonfly redesign – there were some comments about it from developers letely, but nothing specific.
      3. The “new big addition to browser” mentioned several times by Haavard. Why I even consider this? Mostly because he said he was first to mention this avalanche thing even through he said he has no idea what is this page about.
      4. Some company related stuff like new acquisition. Very unlikely.
      5. Like someone suggested on forums –  new Opera Mail service.
      6. Opera 11. Unlikely, however we should see some preview at the end of 2010.
      7. Something too random to guess like Unite – it was the only thing with similar page, at least in last few years.

      I still have no idea what it even is. When I go to the page, it doesn’t even give any information.
