Back off! Opera is an excellent ex-browser.So they are comparing themselves to themselves. That's meaningless. If comparative claims are to have any substance, they should be between a company's own product and a competitor.
Styg's idea would at least make some sense, but that too is just a guess. Opera doesn't substantiate its claim anywhere.
If the manufacturer resorts to making veiled claims about the characteristics of its product, rather than just being open about it, it doesn't give the prospective customer a lot of confidence and will merely lead to dissatisfaction when the product doesn't live up to its expectations.
thats absolutely true and you dont only have that with the web that MS doesnt go with the standards. And then they make standards change with putting pressure on them with their bit of the market.The only reason IE8 appears to be a semi-decent browser is because the web is designed to be compatible with it. In a lot of cases, a web designer will have two sets of code for a page, one to make IE compatible and one for all the other browsers that adhere to standards.
when did you start with (k)ubuntu? I cant imagine the times before either anymore. We all were green I guess. But no wonder, when you buy a PC windows is preinstalled almost every time. And no way to get it without. At least this was for me, as I lately bought a new notebook.I remember when I was still a Windows and IE user. Now I see red because I was so green.
