I find the connection times seem longer because the browser bangs the bits up so fast its a bit scary.

Being a Beta its not fully optioned, and I haven't had a good look yet, but so far I'm impressed.

Mee to It's fast for sure, It's only crashed once (my fault) and a few usual beta nigggles otherwise it's cool!

I am using Opera 6.2. If I install Opera 7 will this go over the top of 6.2?
Being Beta would I notice any difference?
Also when I want to send an Email to a site that I have accessed with Opera it says I have to create an account. I did that using my Hotmail one but then it told me something along the lines of it was waiting in the queue. To send an email using Opera what am I doing wrong with the account side of things?

They reccommend that you use a different install path and it should be fine. I've found it fast!

Opera 7 installs in a different folder by default. Strangely its called Opera7.
I have found it has rearranged my bookmarks in Opera 6.05 but dosen't access them?
One thing I have noticed is that the network connection settings(under preferences) are way higher then 6.05.

Maximum connection to a server 8
Maximum total connections 20
Size of network buffer(KB) 32

I have changed 6.05 over to these settings and it seems faster.

Hmmm...my Opera 6.05 already has those settings.
