As you might or might not have heard, Opera has released a new, completely rewritten version of its web browser. Version 7 apparently shaved off a tenth of a megabyte, which might not seem like much, but the company claims to have added many new features and to have totally reworked their rendering engine.

As it turns out, Opera is seriously questioning whether they will be releasing a version for the Mac anytime soon, now that Apple is so hunky dorey over their new Safari browser. An article over at C|Net has labeled this the "second shock wave" in the browser market, after the whole Mozilla uproar. Funny how Apple seems to be going the way of Microsoft these days, tightly integrating their OS with Apple software and slowly sliding the 3rd party developers out the door.
