Well, my scripts did (it's a natural variable name to come up with if you want to store somewhere that the browser is/is not an Opera browser). I renamed that variable and the Google Reader items show up again.
Here, we have a nice first-hand experience why namespaces are a great idea. But as the web grows in an organic manner, we have to take what is there.
- Name variables in your code more specific than general. For instance, isOpera would have been better than opera.
- When there are no namespaces defined, the big eat the small. If your script is less important than, say, Operas or Googles, then watch the hell where you're naming, little guy.
