Opera Strikes Back, Muppet Style

The maker of the Internet Explorer alternative Opera Browser has released the latest version with an interesting “feature” — pages from the Microsoft Network are displayed in “Swedish Chef Speak” similar to that from the Muppet Show. The reason? Not that they really need one, but it turns out they did it because Microsoft has intentionally created a system that gives users of Opera different and improperly coded pages from MSN, making it impossible to be an MSN user or even think about it if you’re using Opera.

I don’t know if StreetTech has an award for best zinger of the year, but if we do I’d nominate Opera.
