Post after post today, hope you like to read a lot.
Daniel Goldman tagged me in his “Blog tag: 5 things I’d like to see in Opera” post, so I couldn’t miss that. Here you go, my 5 things I’d like to see in Opera list:
1. Integrated inline spell check. This is probably one of the best features to have.
2. Web developer’s toolbar. I’ve actually noticed that more web developers are tend to use Firefox more than Opera. Since it is impossible to install Google, Alexa toolbar, I wish Opera team would make a toolbar where I would be able to see: Google PageRank, Alexa Rank and other great things (no widgets, please).
3. Smart auto update, something like Firefox got. You are surfing the web and then boom, a pleasant message: your update is ready to be installed.
4. More powerful RSS feeds reader. I would like to have a “Trash Can” or at least an “Undo” feature; sometimes I delete important news and can’t use CTRL+Z to get them back. Also: a button to check all the subscribed feeds at once (any time).
5. Actually I have 2 more wishes: Would like be able to delete multiple passwords in “saved passwords list” also an ability to add more “auto-complete” forms.
I was thinking to suggest a small arrow where the “Back” button is so I can see my previous visited pages and chose the one where I would like to come back. However, I can do that already by clicking on a button and holding for a few seconds. Didn’t knew about that.
Here you go.
Once you’ve been tagged by someone, share your list (on your blog) of 5 things you’d like to see in Opera, and then tag up to 5 other people who will then post their own lists and tag up to 5 more people.
Seems everyone loves mobile market now. More and more money are being spent for mobile applications development and advertising.
Now… Before telling that Opera Mini or Opera Mobile is the best please continue reading. It might be the best for any other phone, but when mobile browser is being developed for only one or two models it actually gives you more freedom, developers can integrate more features and make it as much powerful as possible (depends on the phone).
So what we have here is a Mozilla based browser for Nokia N800. Meet the “Maemo”.
Here are some interesting quotes about it.
Sharing the same key components than Firefox, this new browser engine has the capability to deliver advanced web technologies inside a pocketable form factor. The newest internet services will function on the Nokia N800, thanks to best-of-breed open standards support including full-AJAX, and integrated Adobe Flash 9. This also allows the creation of add-on’s to personalize the browsing experience.
After installation the Mozilla based browser engine will be set as default. The user interface of the open browser engine and the official Opera browser is the same, you will notice the difference in the functionality and behavior. Users can switch back to the official Opera browser through the “Advanced” option in the browser application menu. You can also deinstall the open browser from Application Manager at any time, without loosing bookmarks or other settings made for Opera.
Yes, this browser supports full AJAX, RSS feeds and much more.

It seems that there is one very old bug in Opera browser (tried with Opera 9.21 and 9.22 Beta as well). Sometimes it is impossible to navigate when reading post, for example this one as “Netscape Navigator 9 Beta 2 – Impressions Firefox 220.127.116.11 Released” links are unclickable. It doesn’t happen always, althought it’s really a bug and not this site fault, see this prove, impossible to click for me when using Opera.

I’ve noticed this long time ago, actually right after I’ve made this blog public, thats why I’ve just added “Home Page” in the top so Opera users could navigate. Hope it will be fixed soon as it’s annoying one.
So I was surfing the internet today and got a pleasant notice about an installed update. That’s right, Firefox 18.104.22.168 was just released.
According to Mozilla.org, Firefox 22.214.171.124 fixes the following vulnerabilities:
- XPCNativeWrapper pollution
- Unauthorized access to wyciwyg:// documents
- Remote code execution by launching Firefox from Internet Explorer
- File type confusion due to %00 in name
- Privilege escallation using an event handler attached to an element not in the document
- Frame spoofing while window is loading
- XSS using addEventListener and setTimeout
- Crashes with evidence of memory corruption
And by the way, I love the way how Firefox is being updated.
