I was just cleaning up some of my old files, and came across this picture:
The picture itself is actually "just" seven years old according to the time stamp, and the floppy probably appeared as we were cleaning out some old offices.
The sticker says:
1. Start Windows
2. Choose File/Run
3. Type: A:setup
I used to have a copy of the (MultiTorg) Opera 1.0 beta, but I'm not sure where it is now… It probably doesn't work very well on modern versions of Windows anyway.
So yeah, Opera really did fit on a floppy back then, and for a couple of more versions. However, supporting all these open Web standards does add some weight to modern browsers. It would probably be difficult to fit a fully working browser onto a floppy today.
Good thing floppies are history, then 🙂
