@saikatpal said in Why Use Opera?:
built in ad-blocker and Speed Test battery saver is awesome. Scrabble Word Finder Windows Solitaire 10 battery stats actually show that opera is using less than 1% even though i have 10 tabs open since last 48 hrs. chrome and firefox always hover around 25%.
Thank you so much Saikatpal
@yanta Well... there is also Seamonkey along with Firefox that remain the exception. I don't honestly hold out much hope for Mozilla ever regaining much user base. Personally, I think Microsoft made a smart move.
Twilight for days now. Dirty ~0 quasi-winter with the swimming brown splashy road in the banks of whiteish soggy snow thawing up the mud. Chilly 90+ humid wind strong not with its sheer force but with a corpsy boggish mortuary touch creeping up under your skin into your soul, freezing joy of life out of you. Nice picture?
@burnout426 Just sorted it. Now working and offering a variety of English language dictionaries. I suspect I had an error in the file name (en_gb.zip). My fault. Thanks for your confirmation of method.
@joshl said in General Chat:
Speaking of English, there is a question.
What is the most peculiar and/or difficult dialect of English to understand? Either by most English speakers or foreigners? South American? Aussie? Pakistani?
It probably depends mostly on the background and language-culture of the listener. For example, someone from the UK would probably have an easier time understanding someone from the hinterlands of Australia than would somebody from the Creole areas of the US southlands. Especially rural or isolated regions of a nation often develop peculiar vocabulary, terminology, and word pronunciations that render full understanding of certain speech difficult, even by others within the same nation.

What OS do you have?
I bet XP too...
Downloaded and installed the very last version of a browser evermore to be compatible with XP. And it's not Opera, and I had some trouble yesterday with the latter.
Okay. You may be right. There's no way to really determine it one way or the other. My suspicion is that it is a service that they won't be providing so I suppose the conversation is moot. Stay strong, Leo.
