browse-url.el Opera support
Tue, 13 Jan 2004 14:20:26 +0100 (CET)
I'm an Opera user and recently switched from XEmacs to FSF Emacs. The
XEmacs version of browse-url.el (in the mail-lib package) has support for
Opera; I was wondering if it might be possible to fold that into the FSF
I just copied the Opera code from the XEmacs version and it seemed to work
nicely. The XEmacs file has the following copyright notice:

which suggests that the code is already assigned to the FSF, so it could
be included in GNU Emacs.
I attach the XEmacs version of browse-url.el, and my modified version of
FSF Emacs 21.3.1's browse-url.el. Let me know if I can help in any other
