Opera Software Opera is now fully Acid2 compliant. Its latest preview build fixes the last missing feature that was preventing the test page from rendering correctly. Other improvements in this release: fixed crasher on Flash; added experimental support for opening Web archives; improved display of content blocker toolbar; added keyboard shortcuts Cmd+[ and Cmd+] for back/forward on Mac; and much more.

I test in Opera as well before releasing a page to the public.

Opera always seems to be the most finicky of browsers when it comes to how your code is written.

I sometimes wonder if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

I think it's a good thing. It leads to cleaner markup/code which helps to "future-proof" it.

Yeah, you are right - in web development, testing pages in the most CSS standard compliant browser, Opera, makes lots of sense.

If the pages don't work well in Opera, something is sure wrong with the pages, but not likely with the browser.
