On the subject of Opera and GUI usability...

I've discovered after using Opera again for a whole five minutes -- after months of not using it at all -- that I've slipped right back into the usage of mouse gestures to control browsing. I can flip back and forth between pages, open and close windows and do all the basic things I want to do with simple movements of my mouse.

Then I paused in my web browsing to go pawing through a network share in Explorer, and I couldn't understand why I wasn't going back one directory level no matter how much I gestured with the mouse. It took me a little while to figure out now, that's simply not going to work because the software doesn't support such a behavior.
