Opera 9 receives grade A+ from eWeek Magazine

August 3, 2006

eWeek Magazine Labs Director Jim Rapoza, in a report card on the three major Windows browser, gave Opera 9 an A+ grade.

When eWeek reviewed Opera 9, it gave it the eWEEK Labs Analyst’s Choice award. “It’s a good bet that if you want to see the features that other Web browsers will be adding in a year or two, you should download Opera 9”, said eWeek.

“In our tests, we found Opera 9 to be one of the best Web browsing tools we’ve used in a long time, which is why we are giving Opera 9 an eWEEK Labs Analyst’s Choice award.”

I spoke with Jim Rapoza shortly after his review, read the transcript.

From the browser report card:

It’s time for teacher to hand out the grades, and some final words.

Opera 9.0:You’re doing fantastic work—it’s good to see you back in form. Grade: A+.

Firefox 2.0 Beta 1: You’re not working up to your usual level. You’re still looking good, but I would like to see you try harder. Grade: B+.

IE 7 Beta 3: Great job. It’s good to see you applying yourself, finally. I knew you had it in you. Grade: B.

    It’s great to see Alternate Browsers besides Firefox are recieving some good press.

    Wait. IE7 should be disqualified by turning in assignments late and copying off Firefox and Opera.

    What’s the point comparing betas to released applications.

    Betas are supposed to be Feature Complete.
