Default Opera Internet Browser

Does anyone use this? I've been using it for a few hours and I like it much better than IE and firefox.

Default Re: Opera Internet Browser

i've been thinking of trying opera. i tried firefox, but it didn't display a lot of my websites that i frequent as well as ie does, so i'm sticking with ie for now. what about with opera?..does it seem to display web pages as well as ie?

Opera doesn't use the same hotkeys as Firefox does, so I didn't really like it. CTRL+T was nice, Opera should have adopted it.

I haven't used it much, but I think you can have it display pages just like IE. The time that I have used it, I experienced some load problems, especially with graphics. Sometimes you go to a page, and although the page is displaying, it says loading at the top, and gives you a number of images it has to download (12/21 for instance). It may need to build up a cache first, but I got aggrivated and switched to Netscape- it's worked best for me so far, even better than FireFox.
