The Opera Overflow Way

Like WebKit, Opera has their own way to handle this. They apply ellipsis on the line you wish to. Of course the clock is ticking for Presto (Opera’s rendering engine pre-Blink) so this isn’t particularly useful. Perhaps it can still inform a future implementation though.

The Clamp.js Way

Where there is a will there is a way (with JavaScript). I think that’s a saying. Joseph J. Schmitt has an excellent library-free JavaScript thingy called¬†Clamp.js¬†for making this happen in a cross-browser way.
