Yeah it's too bad really. With Geolocation even Opera is joining the privacy-invading bunch. So, there's no safe option anymore.
Now there's one browser where MS is looking over your shoulder, one where Google is looking over your shoulder, and one that tells everybody+dog exactly where you are located.
Geolocation combined with the user agent is pretty much a unique fingerprint. Especially as Opera does not permit a custom User Agent string.
Uh-oh...it gets worse. Much worse:
We're now using the Google Location Services as the backend
So, now there are two browsers p0wned by Google, one by MS and one by Apple. I think I'm going back to IE now. On Linux there are other alternatives.
