Last week, the NY Times became unreadable because of Opera's rendering
of their small font.
Should be: Last week, the NY Times altered their site making it unreadable
in Opera by scaling their body copy to account for a failing in Internet
Explorer. Opera renders everything as it has been told by the site's CSS
(at 87 odd percent of 'normal size').
I have to use Firefox which renders the
exact same pages with a more readable font size. Why is the size
Your base font size in FF is set larger than in Opera? Adjust Opera's base
font size to compensate for CSS coders hack to make IE look good. It's
unfortunate that we have to do that but that's life in the big city
I don't really care.
Well... I've tried to tell you anyway.
After I post this, I'll change my default browser to FF.
Have fun with FF's tendancy to break extensions with every new version.
That got old quickly---along with no good mouse gesture implementation and
...I've had enough.
Having followed various opera newsgroups since version 3 I've seen many
people posting the same statement. All anyone can say to that is good luck
with your new browser. I hope you don't get as frustrated with that one as
you appear to be with Opera. But, don't apologize for that new browser's
shortcomings by saying "At least it's not Opera".
Have a nice day? Sorry, I have other plans...
