Sure it deserves mention.  You forgot to share a critical detail, which
version of Opera introduced MD5 support?  If there is a changes log, it
might be detailed there.

We would like to include it in the list, but we would also like to assure
we've informed the user which version started supoorting it, to save on
"It's Broken!" bug reports.

This is certainly not the truth. The
most excellent browser Opera, from Opera Software, has supported MD5 Authentication for quite
some time now (probably longer than
anyone I'd think). And if Amaya deserves the label 'major browser' then so does Opera, wouldn't
you think?
