    Awsome. Opera is the absolute best browser out there. Heck, it's one of the very few that I am willing to pay for. Get Opera. You won't regret it. And if you can find it, the Bork Edition is great.

    I'm digging it so far. I haven't used it since 6.0

    I think I'll give Firefox a rest for a while, just for a change....

    That's a bit strong, but it's pretty cool. Mostly firefox for me still. But I registered.

    I DLed it and registered and I must say I like Firefox more. Opera is nice but not quite at the same level.

    Thanks for putting the link up though, Silver. :thumb:

    I dig it. Haven't used Opera in many versions. Not since they were just starting - I was using their release candidate for a while, 0.6 or something.

    Thanks for the tip. Time to find a good skin.

    I like Opera OK - it's much less stable than Firefox, though.

    At least it was up through version 8.

    I've never had a problem with it other than the occasional java issue. What issues have you encountered?

    Random crashes. Dunno what caused it. Got worse as time went on. I gave up on it after awhile.

    Sure - do a "Search" of your local hard drive(s) for bookmarks.html

    Just start up Opera. It'll ask you if you want it to be the default.

    Tools/Preferences, Advanced tab, choose Programs, then check the box that says "Check to see if..."

    ok, last opera question...why do i have to keep hitting refresh for an updated version of a page to show? for example...i click on "User CP" here on RM, look at it, leave the page, come back a little while later, click on "User CP" again, and it's the same. hit refresh, and it's now updated.
