What is even funnier about some posts in this thread is that back then Google was definitely the Evil Empire to all there in Opera land! A simple request by any user there was enough to bring the wrath of every Opera faithful - especially the moderators - because Google was seen as even a bigger threat to personal freedom and privacy than Microsoft! I saw posts there that were horribly vitriolic by long-standing members. Yet when a "rebellious poster" got even a little sarcastic he/she would be immediately banned.

Now they have a $50 M deal with Google? I'm just about rolling around laughing!!

Speaking of which - the Google Groups tree view is borked in the alpha version.  >:(
If you don't see how it can fail -
you haven't understood it properly.

What exactly is the Imageshack issue? I don't use it but worked fine when I tried:
Opera - new alpha version brings untold pleasures...or something like that.

Tested using the web site and with the bookmarklet button too: http://www.codeminde.../imageshack/shackit/

It's not a BIG issue, but i was used to having the toolbar on Firefox.
Have been trying since yesterday to get to the ImageShack tools section to no avail. Your bookmarklet is your no.1 !   :Thmbsup:

My pet peeve is that the clipboard keeps only text (this is a biggie, since I copy-paste a lot to onenote and FF gives me html plus a link to where the snippet came from!).
hi, urlwolf. I was looking for a simple way to make Opera+OneNote cooperate, and hopefully this'll be helpful to you too. Check out my post in opera forum:
