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...

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

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"?
