Opera Fast Forward

First off this isn't a criticsm, this site has been a great help to
me since I started with LINUX a few weeks ago. I dual boot
XP/MDK9.1. I haven't got a modem working yet in linux so I use
OPERA7.11 on the XP side along with a dual monitor setup.
When I do a GOOGLE search or check a YAHOO mail account I
can scan all 25 entries at a glance and if I don't see anything
interesting just Ctrl + arrow key and go to the next page. On
this site I end up at the last page. It's a minor thing but opera's
fast forward is very convenient. I wonder how hard would it be
to incorporate this feature to the forum? Any way keep up the
good work and I intend to contribute soon.

I dont think anyone's gunna change the dynamic page system of forums for your browser. Better to ask Opera makers to code something to take this into account and work out how to make the feature act as expected.

Proud let me say again that I wasn't being critical, merely making
a suggestion. I would not expect Jeremy to make radical changes
to his site for me or the small sub-set of members who use
opera. Not knowing anything about dynamic web pages I assumed from your post that there was something inherent
to forum software that made this feature of opera unsupported
or unusual. I did a google ( which does support this feature) for
linux forums. Of the first six I visited four support fast forwarding.
Apparently this feature of opera works almost "exactly" as the
developers intended.

I'll take a look at this and see if I can get the feature in question to work.
