Keeping an eye on Opera
Many are giving up Opera due to the shortcomings of the present state of the so-called "Opera Next"

This thread is to inform us on how the Opera Browser develops.

In the Preferences where it says full-screen, on mine it also mentioned statusbar. Then again, versions could differ based on at what point you installed them and on what version of Android you have them. Maybe.
Ah! I thought it would be a toggle like in Opera Mobile and video players. I don't think I see a difference between fullscreen with statusbar and disabled though.

Opera switched to a new forum software: https://forums.opera.com/topic/22906/welcome-to-the-new-opera-forums

Incidentally, I intend to update to Elk 1.1 in the hopefully not-too-far-off future.

Not-too-far-off future? By Christmas then? What does Elk 1.1 do? Does it do Santa hats like VLC systray icon?

Inline attachments. :P

Also a couple of improvements I added to the video embedding script.

How about putting complete posts into the RSS feed?

Well, yes, looks like complete posts now. So you can tweak them, amazing!

Now, how about adding the poster information too to each post in the RSS feed. Just the name. Can Elk do that? :)

That's pretty standard. What are you using to look at the feed?

Oh, you are right. On Aggregator (Android app) the names always showed. But I use Rawdog on my computers and for some reason DnD is the feed that does not have poster names in Rawdog.

The easiest thing to try would be whether the Atom feed works out. Although I would definitely expect that feedparser library to deal with it.

It must be the way Rawdog formats its output. Mozilla-ites do the same thing - they surely can detect names of posters, they are simply not displaying it (click on RSS or Atom button in FF or the like just to view the result). Whereas Aggregator on Android shows names of posters nicely on a distinct line.

Håkon Lie is more like employer at Opera, not employee.

You didn't really make posts visible in RSS in entirety. You only loosened the limitation. Right ??? :)

There's a warning in the settings that says unlimited is not a good idea. I'm not entirely sure why though. Perhaps it's only a bad idea in combination with unlimited post size. (Currently limited to 20000. I think I may have increased it from the default.)

To Opera orphans, grow up.
I'm using Opera 45 many times, it performs well, better than many other things.
What's the point of being against a 0,1 percent user's browser.
A matter of attitude.

Håkon recruited me and was my first manager, but he's not among the very earliest employees. Yngve, now Vivaldi. does network. Karl Anders did the engine and the architecture with Geir (and early Javascript), he's still with Opera. Around Opera 5 the engine became more of a collaborative effort, but not truly reengineered until about Opera 7.

We can do even better and use browsers that have less than 0.001 percent share of the market.

Yes, a 0,001 percent share of market browser is much more exclusive than a 0,1 one. You won.
