opera

Postby Bowenzinho » Thu Jan 18, 2007 3:09 pm

I just want to say that I'm logged in today using my opera web browser on my nintendo wii. This is totally awesome.

Y'all don't know me but I've known you for quite some time. I can't wait for some limeaide!

Take it easy!

In my mind, this is in a Hannibal Lecter type voice. :shock:

I haven't been able to do that yet (I still have to get my Wii configured for the school network) but the Wii is totally awesome.

I'm not authorized to give out limeaide, but welcome to Pweb.

Anyone can give out limeade if they should so wish. It's just not the CA limeade.

Two things...

1. I hate your Wii-owning guts.
2. When I saw the title of this thread, I thought of the browser before the music. That's scary.

And welcome! I hope to get to know you better soon. That's always fun to do with lurkers.

I third that

Although I live and die by my Opera (browser). I have yet to try Firefox 2, but 1's memory leak just killed it for me.

I went Safairi -> Firefox (1.5) -> Camino -> Shiira -> Camino -> Firefox (2). I've never tried Opera, though I've heard good and bad things about it. I like most browsers, but the big selling point on Firefox for me was Greasemonkey (and other extensions).

Hmm. Maybe I'll give Opera a spin for a bit tonight.

I have Safari, Camino, Firefox, Opera and Internet Explorer.

I am not so crazy about Opera or IE.

<3 Firefox 2.0

One really cool feature is that if your browser crashes, you get back all your tabs when you re-launch it.

And of course, FF popularized tabs.

I didn't even bother pulling Opera out of the DMG. Not worth it.

I only like FF 'cause it does everthing. All my other browsers have one or two cool things going for them, FF has them all. I love it.

So... I'm sure one of the things you've noticed around here, then, is that we're all a giant bunch of nerds. Obviously.

I can't decide whether to be mildly creeped out by the "I've been watching you" idea or pleased that a newbie did his homework before jumping in and demanding why everything is what it is around here. At any rate, welcome to Pweb!

And somehow I like Opera for its very lack of that. (It has been using an exorbitant amount of memory lately though... I'm wondering if that's something with its SCIM interface.)

Hehe... I just got a wii today, and here I am surfing P-Web reading about someone who is doing the same.

It was the 4th time I waited outside of a store for a wii, and the second that I waited more than an hour. Fortunately I actually got one today!

It was worth the wait!

Was that the water incident? I heard about that.

Yeah, the people at 107.9 were idiots.
