There is really no way to get an accurate count of opera users since opera has can switch itself to look like IE or Netscape and what not for compatibility purposes. Some leave this on full time, some only have it set for diff sites, but it skews the results. Opera is more than likely a few percentage points higher since the IE compatibility at one point i remember when installing opera was a default.

Still none the less Chrome is making a bit of a stir, and clearly making ground for its first week out
True but i doubt anyone will use this as their main browser ATM with the lack of extensions and such and the fact that it has more memory leaks than Windows ME and Windows98. It uses gobs of memory, kinda like Vista, so as soon as i installed it and ran it i uninstalled it. Dont care for the crappy interface or the piss poor implementation of their thrown together web browser that is ludicrously hard to customize or make any rudimentary changes that can be done by any browser out there now, even IE. Maybe in a year or two it will be a viable web browser, till then imo it should be listed as alpha not beta cause it crashed the first time i ran it on several machines.
I have FF and Opera installed, but Opera is permanently set into IE mode because I only use it for very few sites that don't conform to standards and/or throw errors when they don't detect IE as your browser. When I set it up for my parents, I set it up the same way just so they wouldn't have to learn about user agents.
I wouldn't be surprised if the Opera userbase turned out to be many more times than that NetApplications reports.
