A web developer friend of mine was approached last week by a major utility company to work on their website. They wanted him to make their site compatible for Opera users.

Stories like that warm my heart. Opera's star is rising fast.

Does this friend have a name? lol

Nice story. Wouldn't it be great if everyone wanted w3c validator compatability first?

Kind of like that old children's story: The Little Engine The Could

I think I can, I think I can..

You might be a die-hard Opera User If:


  1. You attempt mouse gestures while using your word processor.
  2. You paraphrase old Clint Eastwood movie lines before hitting ctrl-g :"Styles? We don't need no stinking styles!"
  3. You have 52 opened windows in your "Save window setup" profile, and all of them lead to Web Standards, CSS and Google discussions on WebmasterWorld.
  4. You actually know who Jon S. von Tetzchner and Geir Ivarsøy are.
  5. You can spell Håkon Wium Lie.
  6. You have that certain smug smile whenever someone mentions Mozilla.

Any others? ;)

The mouse gestures is the one that gets me. I went and bought Sensiva just so I could use it in other programs.
