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.

How is that not good?

Again, how is that not good?

Blame those not using it, not those that do.

Well it is somewhat reminiscent of Embrace, Extend...

I mean, come on, Opera is one of the most standards complaint browsers (also according to Chrome guys! http://blog.chromium.org/2010/03/does-your-browser-behave.html ), but it often works horrible / borderline unusable in js-heavy Google services; and now they're starting to neglect other browsers too, I hear.

Right now, for example, Gmail is basically broken - well, at least its js version ...and, again, that's despite Chromium guys claiming not a long time ago (when Gmail also worked poorly in Opera) that Opera is most standards-compliant in js!

Seems to me it's at least somewhat akin to bundling of IE in the case of Microsoft - strength in one area propping up another, and not strictly by virtue.
