  1. keeps on popping up in Opera after the page has loaded. It is as if the page is trying to refresh.
    Only comes up for two or three seconds.
    Does not happen on any other site I visit.
    I have a custom Hosts file, so it is possibly blocking something.

    Hello,

    Could you tell us which versions of Opera is this occurring on?

    It is a javascript we use for tracking and analytics, and Opera seems to show a loading bar everytime there's a request.

    Doesn't happen anywhere else that I have noticed.

    I will file a bug complaint with chartbeat (the tracking service that we use), no guarantees on getting them to fix this soon though. I will also try moving the code around later today to see if that helps to some degree.

    Opera uses a different approach to showing web responses - - it waits for all results to arrive.

    As most connections are made with keep-alive active, the connections are not terminated immediately by are kept to do more work for the next request (making the browser & server more efficient).

    However, it also creates an issue were ALL of reply#1 may not be generate (eg: response length off-by-1) and progress is left looking for still more :sigh:

    It's an easy mistake and drives programmers crazy to find it :)
