It seems that Blogger no longer supports the Opera browser. For a while I've been getting warning notices that my favourite browser is no longer supported, but I've been able to log in to my dashboard nonetheless.
However, tonight I got an error message in Opera when I tried to post but had no difficulty using Firefox or Chrome (no surprise there!). As a matter of principle I won't switch to Chrome and will use Firefox to access my Blogger dash, but I am irritated that I have to use a different browser at all!
