I really dont consider the wand simpler given that opera has prevented you from EDITING passwords. Again, this is overdoing it on the "Protect the user from themselves" mentality that opera has given web browsing.
Yeah, that's something they really need to fix, it's not the first time I had to change my password because of the page security requirements, and deleting and creating a new one it's not exactly the cleanest way, but it works. Then again, I don't think it's too wise to use the browser password manager, because most people use various browsers (or at least Firefox and IE), and a separate password manager is more appropriate, not only for cross-browser compatibility, but also flexibility and power.
BTW, Josh, DO NOT write a single post more, you're leet, man ;)
I have been a long time user of Opera. I recently updated to 9.5, but one one PC, it crashes as soon as I right click on a page. And it is not that easy to revert to the previous version (9.27) since some data files (mail related) are modified by the installation. I had to use a full backup of the program folder to have 9.27 work again.
Being very accustomed to the huge stability of Opera, I should say that the new version is still a bit rough regarding that, as I said before. The benefits outweigh the defects, but I can't stop wondering if maybe it needed a few more time in the oven. Then again, some of the bugs are pretty obvious at first, so I guess it's not exactly a matter of rushing the program out, mostly because some things can't be broken so badly between a RC and a final version. Maybe the beta testers were lazy :D
On other machines, it has problems with Metaproducts Inquiry : the right click menu item used to save a page is no longer working. Hopefully Metraproducts will find a fix soon.
Maybe it's because some internal changes in the menu structure in Opera, so hopefully it will be fixed right away.
K-Meleon is good if you still have to run Win98.
Firefox3 no longer supports it. :down:
Yeah, that's because the graphics library they use in Firefox 3 (Cairo) only supports Windows 2000 and up. Don't know what's the technical reason behind that, but then again Windows 98 is not that secure to surf the Internet these days. And you can always use the rest of the browsers... like Opera :)
