The Comedy Opera

After the problems users of the Opera browser have had recently accessing the MSN homepage, a retaliatory strike has been made:
In a bit of humorous tit-for-tat, Opera Software has released a version of its browser that automatically translates the MSN home page into text only The Swedish Chef would love.

The special "Bork" edition of the Opera 7 browser does nothing more but use a special web translation tool to publish the text found on the MSN home page into the type of speech used by The Swedish Chef, a character from Jim Henson Productions' The Muppets.

This is confirmed by the official press release from Opera Software, subtitled "The Swedish Chef Goes After Microsoft"

Humour is clearly alive and well and living in Scandinavia!
