beta version that they have tried to force inside everyone. I don't know what could possibly have caused me to think of that
It's completely obvious to everyone you're referring to Opera being rewritten into a Chromium clone with all the features that made it special or even usable removed. The classic version is still available but if you go to the Web site, you'll likely be directed to the shitty new beta version, which runs on fewer environments than it used to. We, the users, put up a stink but they told us to go fuck ourselves.
it would get so messy and stringy that at some point I'd just say 'fuck beta' and wrap up everything in a module (I forget what it's called). A nice looking little box with a few inputs and outputs that hides the horrible mess I'd made.
Maybe it shouldn't have allowed me to pull such dirty tricks.
It's about as dirty as wrapping some code into a function or an object.

/. for the comments, but with the new Beta, I can't even see anything! It just says:

It seems like the "developers" need to take some advice from people who actually know what they are doing. I'm happy to help explain what graceful degradation means if they like...
Slashdot users are extremely unhappy with the new Slashdot Beta design. The comment section of every single post is devoted to dissatisfaction with the new design.
... ... The thing to keep in mind about community sites devoted to user generated content is that the users generate the content.
