Why do Opera 7 users get kicked out of the old Opera tribe?  We are unified, unlike Microsoft Internet Explorer users.  Opera 7 users don't hate Opera 6 users, although IE 6 users hate IE 5 users.

Or maybe it's because Opera Software came up with a nice 3D "7"?  Hmm... it doesn't even fit with the red O. I demand for Opera to be put back in one group!

When browsers become "major" contenders I will split them into their major versions.  Mozilla 2.0 will have its own team when it arrives.  This keeps it interesting.

Then why isn't there a distinction between Netscape 4.x and Netscape 6/7?

I am an Opera 6 user, and I certainly want O7 to win a game more than any other browser (except O6).  As a result, I may throw games to O7. This is one problem with splitting browsers by version.

What is O5 identified as?  O6 or unknown?

it don't matter to me, besides, we all need some civil war razz

i actually like opera 7 in its own group because we're in a smaller group and it's easier to actually get a piece on the board.  so look on the bright side, in exchange for a few wins from all of opera's wins, you get a game with less anarchy.  of course, some randomness is always nice to a game for the challenge.  i better stop now or i'll start to sound like a dictator.  smile

Well "major contenders" as defined by BrowserWars score.  Netscape is currently behind the "big three" by a factor of 3x in score, so it would just be plain unfair to split it up.  Besides, Netscape 4.x is not a browser, it's a joke.

Used to be O6, now it's unknown.  There is a problem with "backdating" versions.  I can only 'fairly' create a new team for new browsers as they come out, because of course I have no way to tell which of the wins for the 'generic' version that existed before were from which version.  I estimated that MSIE would dominate from the start, so I split it, but underestimated the Opera and Mozilla forces.
