    Opera does support non-standard features as well.

    Where did you get the information that the new yahoo mail won’t be supported by the Opera browser?

    Yes Opera does support non-standard features,but it is not up to the mark.And that is where Opera is loosing out to Firefox.I pointed out Gmail as an example.

    As far as Yahoo mail is concerned @Daniel :I myself dont have an account,but I asked someone who does.He said that it gives you a page complaining browser not supported when you use Opera to access the beta and offers you to use the old interface or log out.

    Nizam: Check the Zdnet and Softpedia links i provided.

    Hi, I’m Andrew Hughes, and was wondering if you’d like to participate in
    the first Carnival of Computing. A Carnival is a way to showcase the best
    ideas of like minded individuals, garnering more traffic every week (for
    example, see a Carnival of the Capitalists post here:
    http://anyletter.blogspot.com/2005/05/carnival-of-capitalists.html ). The
    goal of this carnival is to promote different software and hardware
    products and reviews. I’d like to know if I could link to your site,
    specifically this post, but any other if you’d wish. For now,
    the first Carnival of Computing will be thursday, September 22. This will
    be a weekly afair, and if you’d like to showcase any articles in the
    future, please contact me at this address.

    Thank You in Advance,

    Andrew Hughes

    We’re working on it 🙂
    I can’t wait to test the new Yahoo mail. I don’t expect any disastrous incompatibilities from them.

    Regarding rich text, it is a big feature and hard to implement. Think about it for a second, for years and years we have basically rendered documents according to formatting instructions that come down the wire. All of a sudden we’re supposed to turn around and create those formatting instructions – whoa, how do we make an editor? But it is coming along nicely. Current incompatibility worries will be history eventually, and we’ll probably have lots of other things to worry about..

    […] ii) Opera attempts to patch Yahoo mail beta : Last year I had blogged about the new Yahoo Mail beta not supporting Opera ( link ). Opera dev Hallvord had then left a comment stating Opera soft will be working on it. He has kept his promise. Today or so (in Hallvord’s words) OddPatch 0.1 Beta will be launched. It will attempt to fix the flaws in Yahoo mail’s scripting through Opera’s browser.js . He writes in his blog : It’s a complex patch sorting out a daunting number of issues on both sides. When things get this complex, it’s rarely only “their fault” or “our fault” – the testing has uncovered several bugs in Opera and several mistakes in their JavaScript […]
