Hi Everyone....

Installed the Opera browser today, and am blown away with how speedy it is... Is this just my imagination or not???

Running Windows ME

Never tried Opera but have heard some good things about it Alan. How does it compare to IE6 re functionality, security, features, etc...

Opera is fast as I have noticed too. I have three browsers IE, Netscape and Opera and Opera has been the quickest.

I would like to try more later on but not quite yet. I am trying to get as many browsers I can to make websites compatible for all.

yes its quicker sort of. not really quicker in downloading pages as thats more to do with bandwidth. however the cacheing is far better and most of all you can snap back to previous pages without them reloading. sircuity wise it is better. you can get an active x plugin (evil x i know) but it helps makes web pages load/use correctly.

the only cripe is pages don't always load corrctly so ie or netcape is still required for some sites.

uummm i use it myself fast and very compact ideal for just surfing still use explorer as well wouldnt touch version 6 though.

is that ie6 or opera6 you wouldn't touch?

opera6 is far better than 5.12. ie6 is not a lot different from 5.5 with bugfixes. some people have had problems with ie6 but i've yet to have a bad install of ie6 any any machine.

I don't see any need to make a big song and dance about it.
