    They all end up with flaws sooner or later. It's unavoidable. It happens to the best, like Firefox, Opera, Chrome, etc.

    So, call me what you want, I'm sticking to IE! [​IMG]

    I upgraded to 10.53 a few days ago when I first saw the announcement.

    As a long term Opera user ( 6 years), I have been disappointed by the version 10 releases due to minor, but annoying, issues with display at some sites. In one case the affected site underwent a total redesign at the same time as 10.1 came out, so there may be some specific issues there.

    I have a theory (totally unsupported by any evidence, always the best sort of theory to have because it makes it harder to disprove!) that the problems could be related to the rash of new 'features' that have been introduced (such as Turbo, Unite, and Link) which are of little or no use to me personally but could well have made changes 'under the hood' which lead to the problems I am, occasionally, seeing.

    It appears to be a constant refrain in the computing world that program XYZ has been made less effective or useful by 'improvements' and, occasionally, I'm sure it must be true.

    Well, you know what they say, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"... [​IMG]

    No, what they say is: "If it ain't broke, time to tweak".

    :D

    Dear phantom and JimI8,
    My guess is these browser developers do the "one-upman ship" dance, every time when the other browser/browsers do some "fixing" or "tweaking"! So, they ring up their department of development and tell them, "i don't know what you do, but we must announce an update tomorrow",and disconnect before the young team get to ask"why"?:rolleyes:
    Though FF is my first choice, i am amazed at the speed of "Safari"!:)
