Opera and Css

By | March 12, 2006

I have just reinstall Opera since it is free and I want my website to be cross platform.
I used it a bit, and went to labs.macromedia.com and I noticed that even them had trouble with Opera.
Normally we shall see this:

With Opera (8.5 on mac and pc) we see this:

When will we have a unified web browser standard? It already exists, but seems hard to be followed. It would really be time for browser publisher to respect a maximum the web standard. Why is that so hard?
It is really a pain for webdeveloper to make test on all browser, all version and so one (or at least on mostly used Ie and Ff).

    I recommend trying Opera 9, a preview it’s already available and the Adobe Labs example renders correctly. This was not the case on Opera 8.5 as you stated.

    I’ve been developing sites mianly with Opera for a long time and there aren’t any major differneces between recent opera box models and recent firefox ones… well, maybe except the p/hx elements which nested inside other block elements display a margin. But it’s hardly a reason for bashing this browser.

    Anyway – try Opera 9, it’s the second browser that passed Acid 2 test. Event tho it’s beta, it’s still pretty stable.
