Opera _6_ is available for the Mac. I urge you to note that all the Opera advocates say that Opera 7 is a lot better. And it is. Opera 6 is pretty painful to use compared to the other browsers currently available on Mac. You may as well claim that since Netscape 4.8 can be downloaded Netscape is available on the Mac. While technically true, it's not relevant to actual use as a browser (and yes, I know there are in fact later versions of Netscape for the Mac; I'm simply making a comparison).
