Nerdly weekend note

Opera 9.5 is out and I am back too using it instead of Thunderbird/Firefox. This is mostly because it is very much faster, especially at mail. But it comes with most of the essential Firefox add-ins built in—Ad-blocking, Javascript blocking, synchronised note-taking (though I have not experimented with the synchronisations bit) and it is very much faster to load. So far, the only incompatibility I have discovered is with the TinyMCE editor built in to WordPress, which for some reasons adds successive paragraphs before the preceding ones. But this will be fixed in the new release. In the meantime, Opera is still badly integrated with delicious, but its email is the closest thing to gmail offline, even if—a pet, lasting peeve—it won’t do Mapi.
