I saw this just now, haven't verified that it's genuine yet though...

Should be, download.com is supposed to be quite reliable.

I think so too, I only said that because I haven't received a reply to my email yet, but it could be they have to wade through quite a few!

You mean you didn't cut and paste the serial code from the page which appeared *after* you submitted your email address?

They must have been inundated - the story was on slashdot and other sites.

Didn't you get a reply? I mailed them yesterday and received a reply overnight.

I had pretty much ditched Opera in favour of Firefox, but this is enough for me to give it another look.

Opera works better on Asda's site. The only time I use Opera is when I can't be bothered with pushing a trolley :)

I'm using Opera now without the annoying advert space but it doesn't seem to block images and flash....

Can't say that I like it one way or the other, back to firefox for me ;-)
