Heres one for the Opera (the browser not the singy thing) snobs out there.

Why do companies feel the need to point fingers when this sort of thing happens? Just fix it, and your users will be happy. Generally speaking, anybody who even know about and uses Opera is fully aware of the Swiss-cheese that IE can be in terms of security.

Yeah, that'll teach them - a security hole. Its pretty much assumed that all software has security holes waiting to be discovered. Some simply do a better job at security than others.

This afflicts IE as well

I doubt Opera will be trying to hush it up though.

"The singy thing"? I weep for you.

Opera hit some sour notes for me too (v5.0). No encore.

Version 6 is really snazzy. Check it out if you're inclined. Mozilla's giving them a run for their money though, with the new tabbed interface and cookie management.

Oh, and zeoslap, what was that headling supposed to mean? Opera sucks as much as all the other browsers out there so ha ha? That smarts.

Even if it were free and ad-free, I wouldn't be inclined to try Opera again. (I gotta say it, can't help myself: the fat lady has sung.)
