I love Opera

I mean, what's not to love? It's made by someone who's not Microsoft, it's free, it's Norwegian, it's feature rich, and I'm used to it. And now I've discovered another feature. I can nickname bookmark folders!

What's so good about that you may ask. *pause to wait for question* *laugh at others annoyance with stupid sense of humor* Well it's a shortcut to opening all the links in one folder, a feat I've had to use two mouse-clicks separated by mouse movement folder navigation to accomplish up to now. In the future I'll only have to type in "mee" in the address bar and *wooosh!*, all my mee.nu bookmarks will open, each on it's own tab.

Now excuse me while I categorise my porn links and name the folders. Hmmm. What's a good short name for "brunettes with perfect tits"?

1 As a programmer, I'll tell you what not to love about Opera--javascript debugging is TOTAL SHIT in Opera.  Why?  No debugger.  Opera says to web developers:  You wanna debug your script in our browser?  Use alert().  Opera doesn't have any decent DOM examiners, either.  GET FUCKED, OPERA!

2 Pfft. Opera has a perfectly good error console. It's the only tool requried for my amount of scripting.

Lol.  Try and do some real DHTML+Javascript.  For your average webpage, sure.  No problem.  But the lack of a serious javascript debugger has, without a doubt, been one of the main reasons why Opera isn't as widely supported or adopted as it is. 

Don't get me wrong, I do kinda like Opera.  I actually think it renders better than the Moz browsers; it definitely is more flexible when it comes to dealing with bad website design.  But I have a very hard time, as a developer who's had to deal with debugging a complex web application, with Opera's lack of a javascript debugger.  It makes the baby Jesus weep.
