Gmail changes - good news for Opera fans.

Haven't seen this mentioned anywhere, apologies if it's old news.

At some point in the last couple of weeks Google seem to have taken out whatever bit of code it is that makes Gmail need Activex to work on some browsers. Opera, for example, now works fine. This means that I now have no need to use Internet Exploder at all, except for occasional browser compatibility checks.

For some reason I am rather happy about this...

Later: It turns out that you lose a little functionality, such as auto-completion of e-mail addresses. Not a huge problem.
