That was the first thing I did with Opera, it is (was) really good at 
gaining access to website where the IT personal only know of Micro$oft. 
This time it didn't work.

I  had the same problem with the NS licence plate renewal site 2 1/2  
years ago, Opera could spoof its way in. I wrote them a few time 
explaining that I couldn't renew my plates on line, that coming into an 
office or using M$ was not an option due to security reasons. I tried 
their site last night, it is now a little more Linux friendlier..  Time 
wash 2 years of dirt off the old sticker.

It was interesting moving from Germany, where M$ is being replaced for 
security reasons, to here, where M$ is security. Just imagine we are 
trusting our personal tax records to Micro$oft, kind of make you want 
not to pay taxes when you know that. :)
