Opera can kiss my ass.

I don't know what I was thinking, but I finally decided to look at Opera again after a couple of years. And? It sucks. The first thing I noticed was that it offers the exciting 'feature' of Windows 3.1 compatibility (in that it puts a bunch of child windows inside a single parent window). That's a feature?

I uninstalled it immediately after discovering that it doesn't support the mouse wheel correctly - it should have scrolled down a page when I moved the wheel down one notch, but nothing happened. Instead, it jumped to the bottom of the document and back when I moved the wheel one notch up. Now, that's quality.

Even so, it still beats the pants off Netscape 6 - although I didn't think to check the Alt+Space keyboard shortcut to see if that worked in Opera. (That is one of my biggest complaints about Netscape 6 - it doesn't support even very basic things like Alt+Space.)
