#115 Opera sacrificing capabilities ?!

I don't believe you are so clueless, but oh hack ...

You sez: "If Opera wants to sacrifice capability to produce a browser that runs on out of date machines fine ..."

Please buddy, please tell me which "capabilities" Opera has "sacrified", in order to "runs on out of date machines" ?

A browser is a browser. A browser should do what a browser does.

It's not a MP3 player, or a 3d modeller, or a spell-checker and such.

Mozilla is a browser, so is Opera.

I don't care how much "capabilities" Mozilla comes with, what I need from a browser is it does its things. Opera does what it does fine, I have no problem with it so far - no matter how much "sacrifices" it has done - and right now, Mozilla is much too BLOATED.

If Opera can run on a certain configuration and Mozilla can't, it only shows that Mozilla has a problem, and not the other way around.

Opera is not the one that has the problem.

Mozilla, on the other hand, has. Namely, OVER BLOATED-NESS !

The bloat of Mozilla not only causes it to run VERY S-L-O-W-L-Y, it actually STOPS Mozilla to run on platforms that Opera can run smoothly, without problem.

Think about it, will ya, please ?
