|... if by filling in this personal information Opera makes it available to any webmonkey smart enough to extract this info. |
The answer should be unequivocably no. Today the answer is no. Tomorrow, some newer, smarter webmonkey will try and hack it and may or may not succeed.

How do you know this (not being sarcastic)?

This certainly used to be the case with the personal information people entered into their browser. To be honest, I wouldn't be in the least surprised if it's still possible.
Slade, do you have a link to some reference material on this? It'd be great to know that this has been put to bed.

bump - hoping Slade will provide some insight.

Opera is as lock stock solid as any browser has ever been. The form feature has been around forever in almost it's exact same format (I'd bet it is the same code since it was introduced in 3.2x in 98). I've all kinds stuff in pi forms. No worries - and you know how security concious I am.

Thanks Brett - yes, that strip search just to get in to Pubcon was a real eye-opener! ;)

I guess I should have been a little clearer. As Brett stated, I don't know of any known vulnerabilities in Opera's personal info section. That doesn't mean there aren't any, or that they're not yet public knowledge, just that I haven't hear it.
PS: With Opera, I'm just a user. Brett is the man.
