I put info (and the link) for my browser launcher on https://www.reddit.com/r/operabrowser/wiki/opera/browser_launcher. I'll just link to the latest version there from now on. The new upload linked there has a few, non-important improvements like a makefile, license, version info for the exe file, updated readme, and more examples in the cfg file.
Would still like Opera to implement something like this in its launcher.exe. Would be much simpler that way. My browser launcher is example for the devs to go by.
@lmormol-op said in Download Opera Banner - No 'x' + Cookie to Hide:
since today there is a possibility of hiding banner for 1 month.
It's the dl_banner cookie that controls this, right?

Looks like it only hides it for one week, not a month. (I finally decided to check this out as the banner has popped up more often than once a month.)
Also, when the forums try to linkify a plain text link, "(" and ")" in the link must be escaped with a backslash or you get:
http://www.example.com/some file ( M2 ).mhtml
However, reddit's markdown handling doesn't require you to do that. Neither does stackoverflow's. They know the( and ) in this case are part of the URL, especially since there's no use of the () syntax in this case.
But, even with the () syntax, stackoverflow knows the ( and ) inside the URL itself are part of the URL and not a delimiter/opener/closer for the link syntax.
Stackoverflow's and Reddit's handling just seems to be more robust.
Stackoverflow uses the StackEdit editor that uses the pagedown markdown converter. They're both open source.
