Over at Mozilla.org they've been working on fixing their load events capture bug. That's great news, because Opera has had lots of trouble with sites that used event capture when they didn't intend to do so. We had the correct, spec-compliant implementation. However, web developers don't read specs. They test in browsers. We suffered the incompatibility problems because sites were written for Firefox's implementation. We've had ugly problems caused by this issue for years, on extremely important sites like AOL.com, and we've worked hard through Open The Web, information and even site patching.
Inevitably, when Firefox fixes the bug they run into those badly coded sites. They start seeing the problems we've had all along. So what do they do? They play chicken! They decide to tweak the spec to solve the problem their bugs created in the first place.
If they go for this solution, we have to follow them for compliance.
I'm still disappointed.
