All the fuss about Opera?

Post by DaComboMan » Sun Nov 27, 2011 10:52 am

A short time ago on Linux blog, we were asked to visit LM site via Opera browser.
Are we to expect some kind of follow up on this?
It doesn't seem to be for Lisa 12...

Don't know, but the focus for Linux Mint 12 are search engines. Specifically, having the search engines share a part of the revenue they make from searches done by users of Linux Mint 12, with the Linux Mint team.

Read the Philosophy section of the blog about this, to learn more about the background of this. It is a good read.

Good idea indeed!
I've got DDG on Firefox and Opera by default for some time now.

Here's the post about Opera:

Every time I use Opera I seem to like it. I just can seem to wrap my arms around it. I really like the way Firefox handles cookies but I dislike what Firefox has become. Currently I am using Chromium and I dislike the way it handles cookies. Could any Opera users offer some tweaking tips? I really want a browsers that prompts me and lets me choose my cookies. I am very security and privacy concerned...

If you remove politics from people then were all the same.

Cookies?

I think we don't have much choice.

Ghostery extension might help you with your Opera security concerns.

Seconded. There's a port for Chrome/Chromium too. Try it out with notifications on for a little while and you'll see how much information gets datamined by just how many sites.
The great thing about your people, Dib, is that most of them don't notice.

I am familiar with Ghostery which is ok. I use several extensions, adblock, ghostery, no script. I still like to pick and choose which cookies I accept. It's only a pain in the ass the first time I visit a site.

Would you say that cookies are a... sometimes food?
