yeah, i use it. but Opera also depends on Microsoft's IE in order to do it's work!

The Opera web site claims that Opera is completely independent from IE. The number of platforms that Opera supports and IE doesn't lends credence to that claim.

Some other browsers like NeoPlanet do depend on IE, however.
