Opera Software This is old news, but only just crossed my radar! Opera have made available a pre-alpha version of Opera 10.5. There's a massive amount of change under the hood, and I caught wind via taranfx.com.

There is no such thing as a default codec. And there shouldn’t be. There should be consensus, yes, but no one mandated codec.

When the image tag was created the spec could have mandated the XBM format, since that was common at the time.

Mandating a codec now will be just as out of date and impractical as only allowing XBM files for image tags in many year’s time.
