Opera-tolerating goes live

Author: JT Smith

Reported at The Register: "Microsoft's UK-targeted portal,, is now live with the XP colours, nearly two weeks after MS's 25 October Win XP launch and MSN's global look and feel relaunch.

What's more, the site seems to be accepting browsers other than those created by MS. Although not widely tested yet, a cursory attempt with Opera 5.0 and 5.12 (identifying itself either as Opera or Mozilla 5.0) worked with no major issues. Of course, page layout isn't quite as slick and smooth as when viewed in IE 6.0, but referrals to MS upgrade servers aren't found, which is encouraging."
