    Looks like a bit of a poxy version of Evernote to me. Sadly Evernote isn't geared towards book citation, but I'm sure it can be if needed.

    Dirtbox.

    Obviously you haven't used it m8. This addon is fucking stunning. It shits all over evernote from an astronomic height, however they are very different applications.

    I couldn't do any of my uni work with out this addon. If I was asked to start referencing tomorrow by hand, Id be royally fucked. Many uni peeps on this site has expressed their amazement on said addon also, wishing I had have posted the link to it while doing their dissertation, Msc etc.

    Anyways, back on topic.

    Id love to change to Opera. Does it have tab focus using a mouse?

    What do you mean by tab focus?

    Just downloaded it and will have a play for a few weeks.
    Looks nice - any recommended stuff DB?

    Chrome was really nice to start with but it has suddenly become a bit of a pain in the past few weeks. Pages freezing (flash mainly) gobbling up memory, taking the piss with the cpu, etc. May be time to bin it.

    The beta version of Opera looks pretty nice on Mac now too, which is a big help :) I've taken to using it as a recreational browser over the last while.

    I've come to the conclusion though that none of the browsers around at the moment are doing what I want -

    Firefox is unbearably slow to launch and interact with, but the address bar is awesome and it's a great browser for web development as it's widespread and cross platform.

    Safari is also quite nice, and has similar developer tools to FF, but feels a bit limited in search options, keyboard shortcuts etc.

    Opera has nice dev tools, the handy built in mail client, and the sync stuff is awesome, plus loads of other good features but it's pointless using it as a primary web dev browser

    Ah, the trials of existence in the 21st century.

    But I am surprised you lot with your dual core cpu's and 4gb of ram really notice a performance difference. Doesn't make me feel like upgrading my computer really.
    Why are you inside my computer?

    Yeah, stick with what you have, Firefox inexplicably starts to run like shit on any machine about 18 months after a major release in my experience. With Opera, it's actually feasible to check something quickly, then shut the browser down.

    Might try it, does it have an extensions like Stylish?
    I looked into this, Opera has it built in for the most part, for the rest there's this.

    I for one certainly don't see any difference at all. Both sometimes use more memory than the other, and either may load a website 0.2 seconds faster than the other at best.

    I'm sure this has been asked before, but is there a good NoScript equivalent for Opera?

    You can drag a tickbox for java script to your address (or any other) bar and uncheck it when you don't want scripts to run. Button is already in the appearance>buttons section.

    Is there a way to import read or old mail from the Opera 9 client? I've imported the settings but all my sent/received items didn't come across. Same with saved sessions (which is easy to sort out). No biggie if not.

    Ah just checked the version and downloaded that, d'oh - all is right with the world again.

    Very swish, haven't used Opera in years. Does it still hog memory like a bastard?

    Plus you can just turn features like that off on a site-by-site basis. Very handy when you're using sites which like flash or pain-in-the-arse scripts a bit too much.

    Plus: the built-in adblocker.

    Not sure what's happening here but today on EG.

    Go to the beta site.
    Front page renders but I still see the hourglass pointer.
    Also see some ad calls for the flash banners
    You can perform actions on the page like clicking on a link and updating karma.
    However unless you stop the page the actions don't get executed.

    Weirdness.

    Sorry Dirtbox. Tab focus, where your mouse hovers over a tab and focuses on that tab without pressing any mouse button. I used to have RSI and this was a god send. Since it has cleared but I fell in love with that tab focus.

    The normal home page does this to me too.

    oh...


    I thought this thread was going to be about Opera

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    New beta of Opera introducing Opera Unite, they explain it better than I could:

    So what is Opera Unite? In a nutshell, Opera Unite is a collaborative technology that uses a compact server inside the Opera desktop browser to share data and services. You can write applications — in the form of Opera Unite Services — that use this server to serve content to other Web users.

    Why is this exciting? Well, it allows you to interact with contacts, sharing data and services without the need for any third-party Web sites/applications to be involved at all.

    Think of the possibilities:

    You could play games and chat to your peers directly using the service

    You could share photos and videos with peers, straight off your hard drive, without needing to use third-party Web applications

    You can work collaboratively with others on files such as data and images (think wikis or drawing applications), and then work with those files offline if you wish, before sharing them again at a later date

    You could even start creating some crazy hacks, like an application that controls a remote car across the Web (I’ve seen a rough prototype in action)

    Details here

    Download page here.

    I'm been a loyal Firefox user for three years or so now, but tried the Opear 10 beta and really liked it. But I can't seem to get Opear Link working. Anyone else having problems?

    What part of it doesn't seem to work for you?

    It doesn't seem to sync my bookmarks. It claims to be working but there's no evidence of it.

    Thanks for looking any ways DB.

    Quick question:

    Before I reinstalled windows, I had Opera 9.64, and it allowed me to unfocus a tab by clicking on it (i.e. if I opened a new tab from here, then clicked on the tab while it was focused, I'd come back to this tab).

    That no longer happens, both on the 9.64 I installed at first, and on the 10 beta I'm using now.

    How do I get that functionality back? It was very useful.
