New_Age, a month or so ago I installed Opera 8.54. And I love it. For years I used IE and then Firefox. While they are both fine, and while I still keep them on my machine, I find myself using Opera more and more. It's so smooth. And I feel more secure using it. I lack the courage to install 9 beta 2. Have always been leary of beta releases. But I will install the final version when it comes out. I'm hooked on Opera now. Don't know what took me so long. Would like to see more comments on this fine Browser from users.

I've been using Opera for about 18 months and was so impressed that I paid to register it! I have an up to date version of Firefox as well, but only keep it as a backup.

As a 98 user I am not able to use the 'safer' and 'improved' version of IE6 SP2 (or 7), but I 'm not particularly bothered, given its lamentable record for holes and exploits.

I don't have a separate test machine or a virtual setup, so I'll pass on the beta versions until 9.0 final is available.

Like what I'm reading. Seems to square with my experience.

Togg, I am not the adventurous type. Like you, I will wait for 9.0 final.

So far so good with the Beta Opera.
The only thing I've noticed is when I sign in to a site. The box that I sign in at doesn't have the vertical flashing line. Not that it's needed.
Also...
One site I visit a lot, with Netscape, was jerky if scrolling down to fast. Not with Opera.

Of course there are SOME sites that require IE to use. I just renewed the registration on my car tonight on line and couldn't do it with Opera. Must be a .gov thingy. Same with .mil...Guess the Government and Military are bound at the hip with IE. I haven't tried Windows Update with Opera yet. (As if)...lol.:confused:
