Opera browser and Popcap Games?

Thanks to the UMF I'm trying out Opera, and for general browsing I like it. I've already run into a few sites that I've had problems using, presumably thanks to coding for IE. One site though is Popcap Games (www.popcap.com), on which I can't get the game applets to load up for games like Zuma.

Any tips? I'd love to bail on IE!

I'm pretty sure Opera doesn't support Active-x controls, like those games are. If it did, then Opera would be just as insecure as IE, and we wouldn't want that. Opera will support Flash and Java games just fine, though.

Only IE will run the Active-X. Active-X is very insecure, and completely non-standard. Opera, Mozilla, etc. won't run it.
