Announcing a career change and life change

... and Opera hires Bruce Lawson. I already heard that rumoured in London, but it's good to see it confirmed.

Opera is steadily building up a world-class team that is available at conferences (yes, I'm looking at you, Apple) and otherwise.

Opera is clearly the new thingy ... well ... whatever the previous new thingy was.

Opera Dragonfly

... and Opera, too, unveils its own CSS/JavaScript debugger. Haven't studied it closely yet, but this is obviously a step in the right direction.

Some demos to check out Kestrel's new capabilities

Some test cases that show Opera 9.5´s new CSS capabilities. I haven´t yet downloaded the alpha version, but if it truly supports all that´s mentioned here, we´ve got a nice new browser coming.

Kestrel is coming!

... Kestrel being Opera 9.5 . I'm curious.

Apart from being the best standard compliant browser, Opera 9.5 will also display even more webpages with bad coding.

An excellent summary of the glorious life of a browser vendor.

Opera Mini beta

Interesting idea: pre-process HTML pages on the server, then send them on to a mobile phone.
Only available in Scandinavia as yet.

Browser JavaScript Explained

Opera introduces Browser JavaScript, bits of script that seem to rewrite the scripts on pages that don't work properly in Opera. 90 % of the examples is about changing browser detects.
Is this a good idea? It'll help Opera users in the short run, certainly, but what if it changes scripts wrongly? I'd love to take a peek under the hood to make sure that everything works fine.

Why I Don't Care About Opera

A bit harsh maybe, but essentially understandable. Opera is the browser that is supposed to do everything right, but usually doesn't quite. JavaScript support, especially, has sometimes been problematic (right now the load/unload nonsense bears witness).
Andy's wrong at one point: 'Opera 4 was without doubt more advanced that both IE4 and Netscape 4'. It wasn't! It was a disastrous browser that should never have been released. See my old Opera 4 page in the Browsers section.
