Default What do you think about Opera?

Now that it's free and ad free and all that, what do you think of it? You can find it here: http://www.opera.com/ and after I downloaded it, I tried to go my sbcglobal dsl homepage but I guess it doesn't support it. I guess I'm just used to Firefox so much right now... but have any of you guys out there used it and if you have, what are your thoughts?

It sounds amazing ... apparently they only made it free because they striked a deal with sponsors such as google, earning BIG money for themselves, just go to this article http://gigaom.com/2005/09/21/google-...-browser-free/
Ok, an update to this post, i downloaded it and its abit different but the GUI seems pretty good with the modern icons and all that
Here is a screenshot

i use opera also and i much prefer it to all the other browsers out there. tabbed liked firefox, loads faster than firefox too, doesnt need as many plugins/patchs like firefox and doesnt have as many bugs like IE. =D

well i like it and all but....when you x outta opera, and then open it up again it brings you to the last page you were on. thats a pain and i dont really care enogh to fix it.....tho i should. the best feature it has is where it tells you the speed at which you view pages as and also the total amout of data traphered per page.

I've used Opera for a while and I feel that Firefox is still better. Opera might be abit faster but Firefox is easier to use for newbies. The Opera interface isn't very easy to use.
