Opera tolerating MSN.co.uk goes live
Strangely, its better under IE
What's more, the site seems to be accepting browsers other than those created by MS. Although not widely tested yet, a cursory attempt with Opera 5.0 and 5.12 (identifying itself either as Opera or Mozilla 5.0) worked with no major issues. Of course, page layout isn't quite as slick and smooth as when viewed in IE 6.0, but referrals to MS upgrade servers aren't found, which is encouraging.
However, it seems not all the world's MSN portals are ready though, the folks down under have yet to enter the fold.

IE, of course, had no problem.
Opera signed up Sharp as a new customer this week. Sharp will use the Linux-based Opera 5 browser in its Zaurus SL-5000D handheld computer. The device runs on an embedded Linux operating system and uses a Java application environment.
