Re: Disgruntled but very vocal minority of power users.

Bullshit!

No wonders you are posting anonymously.

There are many, many posts by a hell of a lot of users just asking for the return of bookmarks. Definitely not a minority.

This joke of a pretend browser isn't even worth installing just to laugh at. If they can't even get the basics right then it has no future.

Re: Pull the plug

"Nobody uses it, nobody will use it"

Really? Speak for yourself. I know more people using Opera than using any of the other 3 combined.

But there again you already knew that since you know what we all use or don't use.

Compact Disc death foretold for 2012

Load of bollocks!

Those of us who like to hear every note of the music will still buy CD's

Lossy formats are OK if you are listening through the tinny headphones of your media player but garbage through a decent Hi-Fi system. The record labels know that and I'm quite sure I will be buying them for years to come.

Now I'm an Ex F1 fan

Thank you BBC and Bernie.

You have just lost a lifelong F1 fan and viewer.

I have no interest in watching only some races, poxy highlights or listening to it on the radio.

Seriously who would listen to it on the radio?

Give us all the races or piss off completely.

Morons!

Reply to Reply to post: cracking and Homebrew-enabling your Wii is the only way to make it useful.

Exactly! It's a games console for playing games on, not for watching boring films on.

Only one controller.

Those of you who are worried about the price of additional controllers have no need to.

Wii U will only come with one controller. You will not be able to buy more - one controller, one machine.

As to the Wii U itself. I want one now.

If you do, stop right now.

Buy The Beano or The Dandy instead. They are much funnier and the stories have more factual information than anything the Sun will ever print.

Mozilla to ship Firefox 4 on 22 March

luxor
WTF?

Re: The Red pill cures all?? not really..

"at http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/england/ scroll to the bottom, and try to select the parts of the UK.. works ok in FF.."

It works fine here Opera. I can select any part of the UK no problem.

What's the matter is Opera too difficult for you.

Virgin demands ISPs end broadband speed 'con'

luxor
Thumb Down

Hey Virgin I demand the speeds I'm paying for.

I'm sick of their oversubscribed service that means my browsing speed at peak times is abysmal. Then they have the nerve to come out with something like this.

Virgin get your own house in order before you start commenting on other IsP's misleading their customers.

Fecking joke of a piss-poor company.

Because Virgin media would throttle it straight away when you try to use it.

Virgin Media to demo 200Mb/s broadband tomorrow

luxor
Thumb Down

Got your priorities wrong Virgin.

Fix your bloody ADSL service first so that we who use it can get more than the pathetic 0.5Mb/s we are getting at peak times at the moment. Get that fixed you morons then you can do other things.

US broadband seeks ISP speed stickers

luxor
Thumb Up

Good idea and I wish it was adopted here.

If it was then Virginmedia would be in big trouble at the moment as they are throttling us customers on their ADSL service at peak times and have been for over a month now.

If you get speeds over 0.5Mb/s at peak time you're doing well

It would be nice if something like The Register would take them to task on this issue. (hint,hint)

Opera 10.50 goes from pre-alpha to final in 10 weeks

luxor
Thumb Up

No problems here

Downloaded, installed and no issues with menu bar text. No problem with any sites. No problem with text fields being visible. So I don't understand the ones who are having these problems.

What's the matter, Opera too complicated for you? Or just FF fan boys having a dig?

Google Toolbar caught tracking users when 'disabled'

luxor
WTF?

What's a toolbar?

Just joking. I know what they are and if I get my hands on a PC with them I uninstall them.

Never had one on my PC though as an Opera user it's something I never have to worry about.

3 billion have suffered Slade's 'Merry Xmas Everybody'

luxor
Thumb Up

Best Xmassong ever.

It's just a pity Slade are remembered for this one song rather than any other of their great tunes.

Hard to think it was way back in 1973 when it went straight to number one and still sounds fresh today.

Give me this over any of that X factor crap any day.

Opera plugs hole in Great Firewall of China

@Dazed and Confused

"No one is forcing Opera to bow down to this enforced censorship".

Really? what do you think would happen to Opera's Chinese staff if they did not comply. They would probably be imprisoned or worse.

Did he just pull that figure out of the air?

"over 30 million unique users " but how many new users? 5 or 6 I would imagine.
