VisualEditor: Remove Opera from blacklist
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I think we can (almost) remove Opera from the blacklist now, see blocking bug 36000. Opera < 12 should still probably be blacklisted, though, and < 10 should be blacklisted for sure (there's a bunch of people who insist that 9.64 was the ultimate version ever and stick to it).

It'd be cool if it could be added to the whitelist as well, but I guess that would be a promise to support it and you guys probably don't want to promise that ;)


Version: unspecified
Severity: normal

bzimport set Reference to bz50813.

  1. Opera < 12 should still probably be blacklisted, though, and < 10 should be blacklisted for sure (there's a bunch of people who insist that 9.64 was the ultimate version ever and stick to it).

Very happy to add to the whitelist if you're sure that everything works perfectly. It's not a state a browser can only reach if supported by WMF, if you want to commit to doing that. The comprehensive testing is quite a high bar, however - does Opera now cope with everything at mediawiki.org/wiki/VisualEditor/Basic_example_worksheet ?

Note that the Presto engine-based Opera 12.x is being end-of-lined; the new Opera 15 is Chromium-based.

Is it worth worrying about Opera 12.x compatibility?

There is no release date or anything apart from a very early alpha of Opera 15 (which basically does nothing apart from showing pages). I'd say Opera 12 still has a bit of time before it.

Is it worth worrying about Opera 12.x compatibility?

Still, objectively, maybe it's not. But I care personally. :)

It was unblacklisted in the now-merged Ia80a6f53.
