OSNews, Generic OSes Ah yes, why not? The last time we did this, it was March 2011, so it's been almost a year since we offered a little insight into what kind of operating systems and browsers you, dear readers, are using. Nothing particularly earth-shattering going on here.

"suddenly everyone thinks that is alright"

Actually, the people who do that are just 'hacks'.

If Google forgets to test with Opera and/or others that would be bad.

But now that I think about it, I see a lot of sloppy code on Google websites. Code probably no-one still remembers why it is exists.

Their internal process for updating sites in general should was a mess.

A simple example is Google Analytics in combination with old versions of IE, like 6 It broke at times. They obviously didn't test properly.

Although I think that has actually improved.

I don't think it is Google that changed, when they made Google Gears no-one complained.

It was just an experiment to see what was possible before these things got adopted as part of HTML5.

Now that they have this marketshare, the impact on the other players is much bigger.
