Opera Software Opera Mini 3.0 was released today (get it here). Major new features include camera support, RSS feed reader, SSL and https support, content folding, and speed improvements. Screenshot here. Today we also celebrate here at OSNews the first hits of the Opera-based Wii browser (via a proxy hack to allow generic web browsing) and the Sony PS3 browser. We would be grateful if you could snap a picture of your TV with your gaming console rendering OSNews and send us an email with it or post a link below.

You better upload this somewhere and give us the link so we can try it. By posting the source code like this it's impossible for us to try it locally, as Opera Mini can't render local pages.

Looks like it reads the processor directives and thinks the browser has to perform the server side xsl transformation.

It does not work. It doesn't give an XSLT error as Opera Desktop does, but the kind of rendering Mini does is equally useless. The error says that this page uses Ajax and JS and therefore it can't work on this browser.

I also tried your page with Openwave's mobile browser and that also failed in a similar way Opera Desktop did. It gave a full screen error of "unsupported content type".

Maybe you want to code your pages using more conventional methods so all browsers are compatible.

Well, the W3C reports "This page is not Valid XML!". So don't be surprised when it doesn't work in all browsers. Follow the standards.

Also does not work in Konqueror. I don't think Konq. supports XSLT at all yet. ;)

Even if your site works in Firefox 2, it still breaks basic user expectations about the interface.

For example pages on a site should be linkable. Usually the trick is to modify location.hash and check it on load.
