Away on Vacation

August 26, 2005

I’ll be going on vacation for the next week. So unless I get internet connection at the place that I’m vacationing at (which I doubt), I won’t be posting anything new until September 5th or 6th.

I know this is probably a bad week to take vacation. After all, I’m expecting some major Opera news sometime over the next week. I’ll be missing the big Opera party as well (perhaps Opera can postpone it for one week). Unfortunately I planned this vacation a while ago, so postponing it isn’t an option.

At this time I would like to invite my fellow Opera Watchers to become Opera Watch contributors. If any big news breaks while I’m gone, please share it with others by posting it to the comments of this post.

    You really need to postpone your vacation.

    Prioritizing is important, ya’ know! πŸ˜‰

    If the big announcement is changing the default search engine only, I would stay on the vacation for as long as possible … no need to rush back for that. πŸ™‚

    i realize this is for Opera, however we tend to discuss all browsers in general. So here I go-

    It appears Mozilla has delayed the release of the first beta of Firefox 1.5 until next month, and wont be shipping the final build until sometime before the end of the year, Thus making they’re deadline misses for they’re next major release, close to half a dozen.

    To the poster above:

    Don’t be silly! Firefox has a team of a billion open source software engineers and churns out a new milestone release every week. A small company like Opera could never compete with Firefox, where we’re seeing improvements and new features added.. all.. the time!

    Re: Firefox delays. To be fair, you have to consider the fact that they also skipped a planned release. They ended up with bigger changes than were planned for 1.1, so they decided to go for broke and head straight for 1.5. That changed the roadmap considerably, as a lot of 1.1 stuff was moved to 1.5, and some 1.5 stuff was pushed out to 2.0.

    Opera did something similar earlier this year: I grabbed a preview release of 7.60 last December(?), but the final release was months later and called 8.0 instead.

    Suitcase: And yet opera still has so many more features than firefox has.

    “Don’t be silly! Firefox has a team of a billion open source software engineers and churns out a new milestone release every week. A small company like Opera could never compete with Firefox, where we’re seeing improvements and new features added.. all.. the time!”

    LOL.

    Mozilla doesn’t accept fixes without checking them thoroughly. In reality, only a few programmers are working on Firefox. Volunteer contributions are mostly done through testing the product.

    If Firefox did it the way you suggest they would be going nowhere, fast.

    Opera has more than 250 employees, most of whom are developers πŸ™‚

    The new MyOpera will support Atom 1.0 and will be launched any time now. Overheard some people talking about it here in Oslo.

    The new MyOpera will only support Opera for certain advanced features and they will build features into the next version of Opera to interface with MyOpera directly from the browser. Overheard some people talking about it here in Oslo.

    *The new MyOpera will help you shed those extra pounds and learn to play poker like a pro in no time! You will be able to run faster, jump higher and swim longer shortly after registering. Or, at least that’s what I overheard in Oslo.

    * – blatant lies
