Default Opera 10.54 on Windows 98 SE

After updating msimg32.dll on Windows 98 SE, Opera 10.54 appears to
install and run without any problems. Without updating the DLL, Opera
will still run, but gives an error message about the transparency
feature.

On the same system, Opera 10.60 will not run. So maybe v10.54 is the
last to run on Win98.

The msimg32.dll v5.00.1693.1 that comes with Win98 needs to be
replaced with v5.00.2218.1 that comes with Windows ME. For details,
see this thread:

I always find it interesting when someone without much of a posting
history posts to a dormant windows 98 newsgroup. I wonder what
motivated them to do it. How exactly did they choose which group to
post to. Why didn't they do a little more investigation to see what
might be the best group to post to.

So because this looks like some-what useful information, I'm adding a
couple of much more active groups to the original distribution so that
more people will see it.

I don't use opera myself, as Firefox 2.0.0.20 works just fine as a
web-browser for win-98, and netscape communicator 4.79 is a perfectly
good usenet client.

What would the world do without your sage advice and protection?

Changing the DLL did NOTHING on my [email protected] install. IIRC, it
actually ****ed it up. It's probably just another way MS have
thought up of introducing spyware into computers whose owners
don't like IE.

fine as a web-browser for win-98, and netscape communicator

Not to mention you are too stupid to use Opera. Firefox - IE for
people who like to proudly say they "don't use IE".

The same thing it would do without your crass comments and foul outlook.

So that makes you just stupid enough to use it I suppose.

No.

Firefox - a browser that actually works better than IE 6 has for the
past 5 years.

ALL other browsers work better than IE.
