    last 2 days, gmail keeps doing this...

    "Some important features may not work in this version of your browser, so you have been redirected to the Basic HTML version. Upgrade to a modern browser, such as Google Chrome."

    WHY??!!!???:colbert:

    don't usually have a problem with it except for the slowness and a few bugs with the new compose window.
    But, the slowness could also be my computer partially.

    i have chrome installed too and while gmail is fine and dandy in chrome, there's a certain lag in opera.

    not a PC issue, it's gmail and opera IMO.

    There was some contention between Opera and Google. I think they removed Opera from their supported browser list after the Facebook/Opera partnership discussions.

    I use FF and find it is slower than Chrome for Gmail, but that's to be expected and of no concern to me. Probably going to be a similar experience with Google products on anything but Chrome.

    i switched to the new compose option in gmail. everything works ok except the attachment part. when i press it, nothing happens. but after i press the attachment icon and i type something in the email body or click on the camera icon or the link icon, then the option to add an attachment shows up.

    if i only click on the attachment icon and do nothing else, the option to add files does not appear. you guys have the same issue?

    12.02 was crashing every time I tried to exit, 12.10 fixed this problem.

    Welcome to the rest of the universe. There's a ton of sites that don't recognize Opera and keep recommending me to upgrade to a "modern" browser, IE9, Chrome, Firefox and Safari. Bah!
