C++ win32 winapi LVM_FINDITEM or ListView_FindItem returns -1 unexpectedly

The big change here is Opera’s adoption of the WebKit rendering engine and Chromium framework, in lieu of its previous homegrown efforts. This is a compatibility play – WebKit is what powers Safari(s aapl) and Chrome(s goog), so web developers naturally write for it. We’ve already had the Android version of the new Opera, and now it’s on desktop too.

As we explained when the desktop beta (sorry, “Next version”) came out in May, users will find a heavily revamped Speed Dial feature that allows the organization of bookmarks into folders, a Google Currents-like Discover feature, and a read-later facility called Stash.
