Opera announced today that they have acquired Mountain View based Skyfire Labs. + On his blog, Skyfire CEO Jeff Glueck commented: Opera and Skyfire are a natural fit.

Opera has always been one of my favourite browers. It’s fast and they have steady update to valuations. It still needs to go a long way to get close to Chrome or Firefox in terms of add-on support, but it’s a good alternate browser, if you need one.
If you’re like me you probably have a huge number of browsers installed on your system. And surprisingly, I use most of them at some point of time or the other. One main reason is for testing whenever I am working on a new theme or site.
