Here comes the Dragonfly!

Opera 9.5 is out and it comes with a set of developer tools called Dragonfly. So far, web developers have browser extensions like Firefox's Web Developer, Internet Explorer's Developer Toolbar or Safari's integrated web developer tools.

The ability of debugging Javascript is very important in web browsers in order to determine the different JS support, APIs on top of it or implementation deficiencies.

The developers of Opera are doing a great job and it is still one of the fastest desktop browsers and the least memory consumer.

But... some of the typical Web 2.0 sites show some problems. I think this is the last post I'll do on blogger using Opera 9.5, because CTRL+SHIFT+arrow keys save a draft of the current post instead of select text. Pretty uncomfortable as it changes the behaviour of post edition in Blogger
