This one is great. Trust me. ;-)
While using AdSense Google's media bot was eating up dosens of gigabytes of data, my bandwidth was almost doubled.
I didn't mind it because I was getting paid.
But I'd prefer not to have an Opera user trigger a spider that profits only Google and Opera.
I believe that this is an irresponsible use of a spider/website and webmasters will start to use robots.txt to block the media bot (I won't because I have extra bandwith right now).
I wonder if Google is unwise enough to consider using their regular bot for the AdSense crawls. Webmasters would not be able to stop the AdSense crawling without removing themselves from Google SERPS.
Anywho, sorry to digress.
Also a form stopped working at work. Silly me - I'd left the wrong form type declaration in. Opera must be getting even stricter! (All other browsers ignored the error.)
Really, if your page is wrong in Opera, it's most likely your code that's wrong. Wise up guys.
Have a look in the defaults folder in your opera directory, and you'll se all the default settings.
standard_toolbar.ini for instance contains all toolbars with widgets. So these "macro commands" is assigned to different widgets, and you can change them as you like. It's a very elegant solution...
This is a nice intro-page from Rijk:
Note the right border on the 2nd and 3rd tests.
Anybody knows where that information of a page is in Opera? (I think thats what amznVibe means)
I don't think he means that
You're right, that wasn't what she meant ;)
I don't think Opera has a "page info" feature, but it should be easy enough to write a bookmarklet to do almost the same thing. I can whip one up today at some point. Was just very surprised they don't have something so easy to do internally.
Opera is also the only browser that reports the true gzip content size and not the decompressed page size - though it would be nice to have both (fortunately I wrote some php to determine both :) )
Just went to the opera site and found some of the other optional panels as well. Nice little collection but its no match to the number of panels available for IE and Mozilla. Oh well.
Now if they just had contenteditable for rich textareas, I could almost use Opera on a daily basis... maybe when they get to 7.50 ;)

In order of predictability/reliability/accuracy in rendering (IMO):
Netscape (but when it breaks, it really breaks)
IE5/Mac (really quirky for some reason)
(I hope this url is alright, respected authority.)
Check it out with Opera 7.2 and then hit reload. I never noticed 7.11 doing this.
"M2" is the internal mail client (I believe), so I assume the regexps are for filtering rules or something to that effect, but that's just a guess.
Now, a mail client.. why is it that the alternative browser manufacturers of this world insist on including a mail client (or newsreader for that matter).. it's just like "hey, we've got a real cool spreadsheet here, let's just include a word processor, people will like that - they're both office tools, right?"
Just rambling, please ignore ;)
