The so called "be nice to Opera" rule that is used in conjunction w/Tantek(box model) hack.
I know it is needed for Opera5 and is not needed for Opera7, but is it needed for Opera6?
Are people still using this?
Looking at the CSS for the new A List Apart site I notice that it's not being used.
Is it over for this rule?
Opera users are generally a geeky lot and have all upgraded to the latest version, but then again it's only one line of code so why not?

Don't count on it. A lot of people dislike Opera 7 so they're sticking with version 6. I believe it runs faster on slow machines too.
