The JCXP.Net Windows enthusiast site has launched a ?Boycott Opera? campaign aimed at users who are unhappy over Opera?s antitrust suit against Microsoft.
It was Opera?s 2007 antitrust complaint that mushroomed into the current antitrust case in the European Union over Microsoft?s browser-bundling policies.
JCXP announced its boycott campaign on June 12. In a blog post, JCXP Managing Editor David Taraso announced the proposed boycott, attributing it to Opera?s decision to sue Microsoft for antitrust. He said:
?Today, we are proposing a complete boycott of all Opera software.
?This is absolutely nothing more than a company, who can?t legitimately gain market share, trying to squeeze their unpopular browser onto Windows systems.Opera is simply upset because their browser is dead last in market share, and has already been surpassed by the recently released Google Chrome browser and Apple?s Safari browser for Windows.?
