OK I dragged myself off of IE kicking and screaming but I did it. Opera I must admit I love... So I was kinda surprised when yesterady trying to get into the exchange MM hit me with...

Please Use a Supported Browser

Your browser (Opera) is not supported by macromedia.com. For the best possible experience, please use the latest version of one of the following browsers:

Microsoft Internet Explorer >

Netscape Navigator >

Mozilla >


Tried to spoof ID as MSIE5 still no go, that might fool ATW but MM browser detection is good. Further reading turns upů

At this time Macromedia.com does not fully support the following browser/versions. Macromedia is actively working with these companies to resolve issues with the following browsers.

Netscape 6.2 and earlier (Mac and Win)

Opera (all versions and platforms)
Camino 0.7

Ok so any comments why? What issues are MM trying to resolve with these unsupported browsers?

That's truly weird, especially given that Dreamweaver MX 2004 actually uses Opera as its rendering engine and comes bundled with Opera version 6.0.

I think the "issues" are mainly related to Opera's somewhat quirky handling of certain plugins. Also, it has some minor JavaScript issues...

Everyone ta for the pointers, so it looks like everything is off between MM & O.

I wonder who will gain? A shame from MM POV.

Doc what are "it has some minor JavaScript issues"?
