FIFA Ticker at the top... keep it or chuck it?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Only positive thing I can say about Opera is that they're a very fast adopter of HTML5 features... which is probably easy when you only have like 150 users to support.

Do you think they'll adopt other standards too?

If it's new and exciting and might get people to notice them.

We actually used it for an embedded project once simply because most of the project was using HTML5 features that only they supported. Their CSS adoption and a few of their Javascript limitations was garbage though and made styling and interacting with the thing a real pain in the ass.

I was going to mention CSS in my tongue-in-cheek question, but you read my mind so well anyway...

It's appalling... while IE has come around to being a decent browser (9 and 10 weren't bad really) Opera is really the new IE6.

To be fair, IE10 is a reasonable browser. I refuse to accept Bing as an enforced search engine though.

Bing has actually been growing on me since google pissed me off with the Maps change...
