Excellent DOM support and the highest CSS-support "score" of any other browser, even mozilla :)

Technically better CSS2 support, however better CSS in general is debatable, considering the CSS3 selectors and other CSS3 props Mozilla implements. ;)

But I agree, great CSS, and a good browser. Still missing too much of the DOM, and extensive XML support, to be on par with Mozilla though.

Yeah XML support would be very nice; the real "conspicuous by its absence" thing is no support for getComputedStyle ... this is promised for a future build.

It kinda sucks that they are already releasing the final version 7 for Windows,and no version at all for GNU/Linux.

I was more disappointed by the entire lack of DOM2 Style, DOM2 CSS, DOM2 Range, and DOM2 Traversal personally, which includes getComputedStyle().

DOM2 Events is nice, but there is a lot of power missing in Opera's DOM implementation.

I have now downloaded it, and no matter what anyone else says, it will be the only browser that I ever use... it is just the best.

Opera 6 was hideous, 7 looks a dream.

Yeah here it is ... you planning to make a skin ..? (I can give you a high-res screenshot if you want it) I would love O7 to look like that, as the design is the most off-putting thing for me. I'd very much like to see O7 take a healthy share of the browser market; while it may not have some of Gecko's advanced features... well, I don't really do that kind of stuff personally. Good CSS2 and basic DOM support is enough for me :)

I am not making a skin right now, maybe sometime in the future, I do not know yet, seeing as I am finalizing v2 right now.

Anyhow, that looks like IE... well a bit anyway.

I still stick with Opera 7.

Mind you the back and forward buttons seem to have stopped working, and why I do not know.

How *do* you make a skin anyway?

You'll need a special program which operates in DOM, I think. (It has been a while since I have used it). Anyhow, it resembles what programs like Windows Media Player, and players like that operate.


Not a hard thing to do, but it takes a lot to just get the skin files from photoshop graphics...

Mouse gestures rule. They become so natural that you find yourself trying to use them in other applications.
