Make Amazon.com and other websites work with the Opera web browser

Since the Opera web browser only commands a relatively small portion of the browser market, several websites do not ensure that their functionality works in it - in fact, some will instead use JavaScript and "browser detection" to serve an error message simply stating that Opera is not supported. 99% of the time, however (and in our experience), the websites in question work just fine. Aware of this type of issue, Opera ASA (the company that makes the browser) has built into the software a feature that allows you to "force" sites to play nice with Opera on Windows 7 / Vista / XP, Mac OS X, Linux, etc. Pictured below is the problem you face when trying to preview a book's content with the Amazon Online Reader: "Your web browser does not support this feature. Please visit our Frequently Asked Questions for a list of compatible web browsers that support the Amazon Online Reader."
