Opera and Mozilla de-emphasizing Web Sockets while Security issues are sorted out

 From Anne van Kesteren's blog [1]:

"Adam Barth reported [2] on vulnerabilities with the current WebSocket 
protocol handshake...This means that until the new WebSocket protocol 
handshake is sorted out by the IETF it will be behind a preference in 
Opera. (The same is true for Firefox [3].)"
