For the record, I sent you one very polite email off list 3 days ago to 
which you never replied. My 2 emails to this list were not blandly 
demanding either, they were simple and to the point. I do not think any 
of my messages warranted this type of reply. And neither did they 
warrant me being insulted off list by someone else from this list.

Browser optimization is not something to take lightly and basically 
dismissing someone by telling them to go contribute code on github is 
not the best way to handle things either (like I said not everyone is a 
developer and users should be able to inquire about and request changes 
regardless). Indeed Opera is perhaps not the browser with the most 
market share globally (1.52% atm) but by effectively shutting it out, 
you are ignoring many eastern european countries, among other things.

Anyhow, I do use other browsers out of necessity, including Chrome, 
Chromium and Firefox. But with such user/customer relations, I will not 
be going to the trouble of taking them out for your product.

Best regards,


Catherine Roy
