Opera Browser

We've had some trouble with the Opera browser recently. It used to work on kayak.com, and now it's broken. There is good news for you Opera fans out there: our pals at Opera gave us some Javascript to fix the AJAX-ing of results. That fix is currently planned to go out on April 13. It would be sooner than that, but some other stuff that is happening makes it troublesome. You really don't want to know the details.

In the meantime, here are two workarounds for Opera:

1. when you are doing a flight search (or hotel search), wait for the little green bar to progress all the way across. Then hit refresh. Your flights will appear!

2. Try basic mode kayak. It's kind of, um, basic, but it works with almost all browsers. Even really old ones. No AJAXy goodness, of course. Mr. Miyagi says: basic on, basic off.

Could you please fix the overlapping ads on the search results page (opera 9.22 on Mac OS X here)?

Everything else works like a charm!

I can't reproduce any overlapping ads on Opera OS X. Please followup with the feedback system http://www.feedback.com/feedback/ if you have more to report.
