Surely some mistake

I've been using dragonfly for ages in Opera 11, it is very good, perhaps this story simply refers to a new version?

Opera:Config live links

Glad to see the open-source Dragonfly getting more visibility. It allows remote debugging of mobile web sites from your computer also. Very cool!

FYI, you can wrap the <a href="opera:config#DeveloperTools|DeveloperToolsURL">"opera:config" Dragonfly link</a> within an HREF statement and it will be clickable when using Opera.

In my slightly tired mind, that looks like Command plus Option plus i for Indigo. MIght be L for Lima I suppose.

Not that bad really.

⌘ = the following

If your an old mac user ⌘ is pronounce "apple",

Otherwise 'splodge', 'thingy' or even 'command' are usable pronunciations.

Simple...

⌘ is "command" or "cmd" and ⌥ is "option" or "alt", so "⌘+⌥+I" reads "cmd+alt+I", which is what people would actually type, but since this is a Metz article...

Well ...

... a client of mine runs an entire office of macs. They don't know how to pronounce those buttons and they don't know that they're called "cmd" or "alt".

Usability fail.

Beta, not alpha

You may have been using Dragonfly for ages, but you were using an alpha version. This is the first release of the beta And as for pilfering from blogs - does that include official announcements?

DragonFly

DragonFly is an already used name in the open source arena. I wonder if Opera knew/cared.

If you think I'm being pedantic, Mozilla Phoenix became Mozilla Firebird because Phoenix Technologies threatened to sue, and Mozilla Firebird became Mozilla Firefox because it conflicted with an obscure, rarely used, open source version of InterBase, a DB engine that has since descended to obscurity*.

* My apologies if you use Firebird/Interbase. You can commiserate with the other 17 users if you like.
