    Woa cool I didn’t knew about this trick.

    I have switched back to Opera 11 but it has a long way under development. Like new Yahoo doesn’t support it PLUS it has lots of flaws in showing css, js effects as I see it in my personal site.

    Hope they fix it all before shedding its beta tag

    I never used opera because of lack of some features. However for average users it is a good browser. At least good from IE
