The W3-dev menu offers HTML validation, CSS, WAI, Section 508 (<--- test ANY page!), links to all popular and not-so-popular browsers, very extensive resource and testing links, and so much more.
Very, very cool, and very useful. Sorry--it's Opera 7 only!
Opera 7 W3-dev [goddamn.co.uk]
Then papabaer posts this topic. Guess what, I'm not on my way out just yet!
Okay, forgive me for being somewhat dense when it comes to Opera, but why can't I get that menu to appear?
I downloaded the .ini file and dropped it into the Opera > Defaults folder. Did I put it into the right place? Do I need to activate something in preferences to make this work.
Come on, I'm salivating which I'm sure was your intended effect. Tell me, how do I get it to work?!
Some cool stuff in that menu. Tis not going to rain in this neck of the woods and I can't use that as an excuse anymore not to get the car waxed. I do have priorities ya know.
That is definitely one cool little add in, thanks papabaer!
By the way, I'm certain it would not take much to customize the W3-dev.ini file to add your own resources and links.
I bet Brett could add a link to his Keyword Density checker and more... Brett?
Heh, the challenge is laid down. I'm on the lookout for Bretts next article "Weaning a hopeless case off of IE in 6 months..." with a full case study of pageone and Opera in it.
With a full case study of pageone and Opera in it.
Hey, why's everybody always pickin' on me? ;)
No weaning needed here. I've been using Opera since version 5 (for site compatibility checks). The majority of my browsing is done in IE for a number of reasons. In some cases, I have no choice! ;)
Opera definitely has its advantages over IE and, Brett, papabaer and other Opera supporters will always be here to let us know. I enjoy the Opera browsing experience.
Brett, I'll second papabaer's motion to make a WebmasterWorld menu for Opera. Talk about branding! You could promote that great set of tools and at the same time, invite users to make the switch to Opera. ;)
Now, I think I had to go wax the car...
I have just been sent a link to this forum. Glad you like it.
Yes, it does work in the Linux version of Opera -- Linux is my desktop OS.
As for how to install, if you're using Opera 7.1x, you should just be able to click on the link and it will be auto-installed. If you're not using Opera 7.1x, whyever not?!?!
It is probably quite possible to write something similar for IE -- although no doubt involving buying some expensive development tools.
There is already something similar for Mozilla/Netscape. It's called Checky (shouldn't be too difficult to find on Google). Although the w3-dev menu **IS NOT** an Opera port of Checky, I have copied a few ideas for the 0.92 version from it.
Let me know if you have any ideas for improvements.

Tried to install it - no go there - v7 crashed.
Sorry, Opera 7 really bites - can't stand it - sticking with the rock solid v6.
I want one for IE!
Have you had a look at [favelets.com...] by Tantek (of the "Tantek box model hack" fame)?
Not quite as nice as the Opera menu, but they do work in IE.
Brett: I can confirm that Opera 7 works fine with my Logitech Mouseman Traveller (PS/2 port)
I have to say this: the big "O"(pera) just keeps getting better and better. As Nick and Toby (and others) have discovered, Opera is very amenable to user-enhancements. When Opera Soft says "O" is customizable, they REALLY mean it!
More and more.... the ultimate webmaster's power tool!
