    Can't they do it without a platform update?

    That would be like a new DX11 benchmark without tessellation. GPU acceleration is one of the key new features of IE9 and Firefox 4. Platform Update backports major NT6.1 new features to NT6.0, Direct2D and DirectWrite are one those new features. If your install of Server 2008 does not like the Platform Update you should fix it because it clearly supports both Vista and Server 2008.

    Wow that sucks. meh. I'm gonna go to server 2008R2 soon as I get my server grade SSD drive.

    So that won't matter much to me.

    But still I'd rather have FF then IE at this point. I don't like the direction MS goes with software these days. They just pile more crap and not re-vamp stuff. A member on here has the perfect sig explaining this ordeal MS has! I quite like his sig!

    Thing is sites shouldn't be so intense to NEED GPU acceleration to begin with! ISPs are gonna hate that as well. The connections can't keep up with much of those kinda sites.

    I can't believe how amazing Opera 11 is!
    Functionality, addons (which are mediocre ATM though), interface, footprint size and most of all Speed!
    Simply brilliant! I think all that's left is roboform toolbar for Opera and certain addons like flashgot, greasemonkey & flagfox, and to have NoAds refined to the level of Adblock Plus.
    I'm counting down reasons to use anything but Opera! :rockout:

    Am i the only one who is pissed off by the new speed dial? Really don't like how it seems to zoom in really far to the left of the webpage for the thumbnail now.

    Yeah sometimes opera "fixes" bring more trouble than they`re worth. New build a bit buggy for me.

    ... and still no update on Opera Mini for iOS. I'm starting to think it was a bullshit PR stunt and Opera had no intention of supporting it.

    Well, time for an Opera Update! We got a Release Code to play with!:)

    EDIT: Check the blog page for the latest on updates and releases: Opera Team update Blog

    Latest update Jun 24, 2011 > Opera 11.50 RC 2

    Updated 6/25/2011 > Swordfish (11.50) Release Candidate 3

    Updated 6/26/2011 > Swordfish (11.50) Release Candidate 4

    I've been noticing this as well in Firefox 5. The icon is not always rendered, usually when you open the thread. But if you click Refresh, the icon appears. I haven't tested but it's quite possible that AdBlock is causing it. Or Firefox. Or combination of both.
