Then we announce that we will ship a trivial workaround to a common and destructive author error… and there is great drama on Twitter.
Positive takeaway: there are more concerned and caring web developers around than Opera Unite users (and they probably form some of Twitter's best connected users).
The negative? I'm disappointed that we didn't figure out how to tap Unite's potential. I know why it makes sense to remove it now, I didn't even use it that often myself, but it's still disappointing.
Well, we still have the code – so maybe we will try again. Someday.
