    Ooo nice! How does it compare to Firefox 3. I found it to be very good compared to Firefox 2.0.14.

    Been using opera on desktop for a year, and Opera for Windows mobile for almost that, its pretty amazing. I love speed dial, great for lazy pricks like me...

    i tried opera, just cant seem to get used to it. even though firefox copied speed dial from opera, it just looks so much cleaner overall

    I had 5 browsers on my Pc about a wek ago
    In order of usage
    Opera 9.51
    Safari
    Firefox
    IE7
    IE8 B2
    IE8 was promptle removed because it instantly crashed. I only use Firefox and IE7 for anything I can't do on opera/safari, like windows validation is much easier and stuff like that

    i really like firefox 3, and judging by the recent record that was broken. a hell of a lot of other people do as well.

    Yeah I love Firefox 3
    Though I also like Opera still too. I've got both but I usually just use Firefox by default. I love Opera's speed dial though

    On the Aspire One, Opera seems much, much faster than Firefox 3. Has anyone else had this experience?

    I hope they can make an opera web browser just to open to like google and yahoo. Firefox doesn't work for me, must be an older download. When you use a library computer so time is of essence. I play games too so I'd like a fast web browser too. Your posts sound very encouraging for playing games. Firefox just doesn't work fast on a little netbook borrow. When I had the free superantispyware program download every time I scan I had a hundred issues!
