Hot and Sandy

Travel writing, pictures and stuff for people I know. Quite a lot of cycling talk, and some semi-controlled ranting. Hiking, outdoor and two-wheeled stuff, perhaps a little computing when it's worth talking about. Meandering thoughts.

Opera Is Terrible

I started using Opera in the late 90s, when it was little-used but very
fast and standards-compliant. As Mozilla Firefox moved from being the
alternative left-field choice towards being the big player, I thought
perhaps the alternative business model of Opera would survive. I
temporarily looked at Camino, I use IE (yuck) on machines I'm not
allowed to administer and I have installed Chrome. None pulled me away
from Opera, until now. Version 12.00 on Mac OS X 10.6.8 Lion is awful.
Google doesn't load! Pages hang! The internet seems a horrible and
unreliable place.... until you load with Safari, in which case all is
fine. Worst thing is that it's been like this for several versions, and
it's getting worse. So for now, Opera, goodbye. It wasn't me, it was
you. I'm not angry just disappointed.
