Opera goes ''Bork'' on MSN

Noone is going to blame Opera for not having a sense of humour!

Opera releases "Bork" edition

The Swedish Chef Goes After Microsoft
Oslo, Norway - Feb 14, 2003

Two weeks ago it was revealed that Microsoft's MSN portal targeted Opera users, by purposely provided them with a broken page. As a reply to MSN's treatment of its users, Opera Software today released a very special Bork edition of its Opera 7 for Windows browser. The Bork edition behaves differently on one Web site: MSN. Users accessing the MSN site will see the page transformed into the language of the famous Swedish Chef from the Muppet Show: Bork, Bork, Bork!

I downloaded the version at work and tried it there this afternoon--extremely funny! Now I'm at home, though, all I get on the MSN home page is a blank. I wonder if they've got wise, and have decided to block Opera users altogether? (Or at least those with the Bork edition.)
