Opera is showing the world how to be fierce competitors but doing it fairly and in a good way.

In the words of the judges on a TV show I've been watching, So You Think You Can Dance,

"Yeaaaaaahh!!!  YEAAAAHHH!!! WOOOOOO!!! That's competition!! That's what I'm talking about, YEAH!!"

Now if only Microsoft could comprehend the philosophy, they would stop making excuses for their corporate partners and start asking them to simply make their web sites compliant.

Oh, but oops, that would break their sites on IE... *sigh* .. Oh wait .. Ahh, got it .. they did understand it, they've been telling their customers to retain broken code that only works on IE and not to make it standards-compliant so that it keeps working on IE .. maybe they're not so stupid. Improper? Yes. Stupid? No.

About the author

Jon Davis (aka "stimpy77") has been a programmer, developer, and consultant for web and Windows software solutions professionally since 1997, with experience ranging from OS and hardware support to DHTML programming to IIS/ASP web apps to Java network programming to Visual Basic applications to C# desktop apps.
 
Software in all forms is also his sole hobby, whether playing PC games or tinkering with programming them. "I was playing Defender on the Commodore 64," he reminisces, "when I decided at the age of 12 or so that I want to be a computer programmer when I grow up."

Jon was previously employed as a senior .NET developer at a very well-known Internet services company whom you're more likely than not to have directly done business with. However, this blog and all of jondavis.net have no affiliation with, and are not representative of, his former employer in any way.
