If you like Opera Dragonfly, as I do, you may have stumbled upon a small annoyance: if Opera is configured to start with the previous window, if you use Dragonfly in a separate window - maybe because you use a dual screen config - if you happen to close the main Opera window with Dragonfly still open, and close Dragonfly afterwards, then you will notice that Opera complies with your choices: when you restart it, it restarts with the main browsing window closed and Dragonfly opened.
At this stage, closing Dragonfly won't help, because Opera will faithfully restore it at every launch. Annoying. Luckily, there is a very simple workaround if you find yourself in that situation...
Spending most of my web time in Opera, I had noticed that on one of my PCs, hovering over a hypertext link (i.e.
<a href="..." ...>) had ceased displaying the target of the link in the UI, and there didn't seem to be a setting to make it appear again. Even when upgrading, that annoying behaviour kept stuck.
As one can expect, it turned out to be simple to fix, just not obvious in the Opera UI. Here is the procedure:
It's 2007, people ! Rejecting Opera for its lack of standards compliance and advocating MSIE and Netscape Navigator instead is just ... well, you know what.
Can't but wonder whether they heard about the Acid test, or about that small, relatively unknown browser named Firefox.
A few days ago, the designer working on our sites asked me stats about the browsers visiting the sites. She already had the general data available, but this time what she wanted was the info about the "other" browsers.
Which is quite true: once a site has been designed to standards and the quirks of the two or three major choices, work has to be spent on the non-standard non-mainstream ones. But to what extent ? Here are the data.
During its 10th anniversary party, Opera is giving away free registrations for all current versions of the Opera browser.
You can get yours while the party lasts at: http://my.opera.com/community/party/reg.dml and appreciate what I consider to be the best browser for all usual platforms at no cost.
There has been lots of buzz being done these last few days about a soon-to-be new economic model for Opera, by the way. Run Opera, Run !
