The Phantom of the Opera

Yay! Hixie has a job! Not just any job either: he's working for Opera, creators of the web browser of the same name.

Actually I already knew about this a couple of weeks ago, but it now seems that the cat is officially out of the bag (the real question is: which cruel person put the cat in the bag in the first place and why, but I digress).

Now Opera is not a bad browser. It has some good points:

Plus it seems that the team are quite dedicated to standards compliance.

It is not, however, without its faults:

...specifically, its support of the overflow CSS property seems to be flawed and it's completely screwing up the formatting of various other elements also. I'm pretty sure these problems aren't the fault of Voidwars' code (though it is possible - I will admit it's not the best written HTML in existence), but it would be nice to see it work.

Given this, and the number of other documented bugs in Opera's standards support I reckon that Hixie working for them is a very good thing indeed. ☺
