The Hate List: Differences between browsers

I suppose this is probably something that only really affects me, but generally it’s a bit annoying when you do some action which does something in one browser and…nothing happens because you’re using a completely different web browser.

Petty, I know.

What prompted this you might ask?

Well! Even if you don’t ask, I’m going to talk about it. 🙂

In Opera, mouse-clicking on the left edge of the browser window pops up a sidebar filled with all sorts of things – favourites, history, transfers…the rest of it. In Internet Explorer, nothing happens. At all.

Oh I know that there is something kind of similar, where you can click on the star to drop down a favourites or history sidebar, but it’s not the same is it?

And with Opera being my browser of choice, it does grate a bit when I’m forced to use other browsers.

Then there’s the differences which I can’t quite remember between Opera and Firefox and the keyboard shortcuts for scrolling through open tabs. I haven’t even got a clue what the shortcut to do that in Internet Explorer is.

And I’ll probably never find out.
