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?

This site breaks down which versions of Opera work with any common hack:

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.
