<QuHno> mousemove still seems to fire under certain conditions even if the mouse is not moved ... <XXXXX> chromium bug? <XXXXX> or blink bug <QuHno> probably blink bug - will test now... <QuHno> yepp, blink bug. We really need an additional checkbox or select option in the bug report wizard "Chromium Bug" <XXXXX> not much point to report in our wizard and not in theirs <XXXXX> just in theirs should be enough
I see no need for further testing if there is "not much point to report in our wizard". Several of the bugs I find are chromium/blink bugs and the chromium devs didn't arse up to fix those over the years. The specs didn't change for the bugs I found. They are word for word the same in HTML4 (since 1999!) and HTML5 and in the corresponding JS specs. The Chromium developers simply do not care.
It is about this bug:
(reported 2013-07-19 as DNA-8903):
mousemove fires under certain condition without moving the mouse http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Test/HTML401/current/tests/sec18_2_3-BF-16.html Steps to reproduce =================== 1. open the url 2. move the mouse pointer over the button, leave it there, and take your hand away from the mouse 3. press the space bar or the enter key to close the alert.
Yes it is a bug in Chromium 30 too but I don't care, I don't use Chromium but Opera!
I don't want to set up a f**king Google account to report Opera bugs to Google and I couldn't care less if Chromium/blink does something wrong.
- How should a normal user know where to report a bug he encounters in Opera apart from Opera's bug report wizard?
- Should he install Chromium to look if the bug exists there?
- Would it really be so difficult to build an interface from the Opera wizard to the Chromium bug tracker?
To repeat it:
I am an Opera user, not a Chromium user! Quality matters!
I give a d**n s**t about Google or Apple or Chromium/Blink or whatever, in the past they were a nuisance and a PITA and deliberately helped breaking the web for standard conform browsers like Opera 12.
When I report a bug to Opera I want that the Opera developers care about it because—I repeat it again:
I am an Opera user! Period.

Despite I am furious about that answer, there is no need to pour a bucket of garbage over that particular developer because there is a chance that it only was a private opinion of a poor developer who is as frustrated as I am now.
