Wow, Opera's javascript is good enough for CB now (in General)

AdminJonathan June 11 2007 11:27 AM EDT

I'm kinda surprised it took them so long since CB isn't exactly on the bleeding edge of ajax or anything. But yeah, Opera 9.2 works fine so far, including fighting, except for having to force a refresh on my Home sometimes (re-inked tattoo didn't show as changed immediately).

Just giving Opera a try and hoping it will max out at less than the mid-300MB FF would take after a couple days.

Doesn't do anything for me because I'm not technologically advanced enough to figure this out. Sounds like I could run other things besides CB if I use Opera instead, though.

Konqueror still complains about a 'Error: node : TypeError: Value undefined (result of expression parent.sidebar.js_submit) is not an object. Cannot be called.' when for example clicking on 'Inspect'. Version is 4:3.5.7-1. I suspect similar issues are with Safari.

No problems with Safari on this end other than manually having to click on the fightlist and no play-by-play.

I used Opera for a while some months back...was very, very fast on my G5 iMac (10.3.9). Had trouble with sometimes refreshing completely when I went Home, but for C-Enter it was the fastest browser on my machine. I didn't do much else with it..

Soon there's a chance to fix bugs in Safari too ;)

Opera under ubuntu blows Mozilla and FF away from speed (c-enter)...I'm stoked to hear this!

Opera beats the hell out of all browsers speed wise. Mian suggested I check out the userscripts for opera to see if I could port my script to Opera. I haven't looked into it much yet, but if Opera supports some kind of persistent storage mechanism for scripts I'll definitely look into it.

I use Opera to access CB on my mobile and it works great, just need to somehow get free internet :p
