Now call me an optimist, but we have about half a year's experience with browser.js and I'm seeing evidence of the opposite. Three good examples are allmusic.com, shockwave.com and atomfilms.com - they all had long-standing issues with Opera, they were patched successfully with browser.js and a few months after the patch, each site was fixed by the webmaster!As a web developer, I can attest that I want my site to work in Opera, but I don't necessarily have the time or know-how to fix this or that little thing. (Or big thing, like when Blogger posting was broken in Opera.) Having someone come and say "this is what you need to fix" is wonderful both for getting the results and also building goodwill towards the product.
