It's probably just the next release of their browser. Maybe it'll be completely HTML 5 compliant or something

Coincidentally, June 16th is when those silly Verizon people will theoretically be turning on my internet. WTB modem before Tuesday...

I for one like Opera and use it almost exclusively. I am particularly grooving on the beta for Opera 10.

I'm not sure why anyone uses Opera when there's Firefox & Chrome.

Maybe if you want to access the old web.

This new one's been reinvented, I hear.

Because not everyone uses the same browser as you.

It's hard for me to just stick with one. I use IE, Fire Fox and Chrome for different reasons. Mostly Fire Fox though.


Never got into Opera.

For me, I love firefox and it's plugins.
I used netscape for a solid year before switching to Firefox (pre 1.0).
The only reason why _I_ think people should be using Opera is because they used it back when it was NOT free. (Or they are Nintendo fan boys)

As for Chrome, I have no use for it. However people say it's a solid, light-weight browser.

Oddly enough, my download speeds are seemingly faster when downloading through Opera. I don't care for the whole browser vs browser scene though. Firefox was too much bullshit in its default state too. That's one of the reasons I like the Vimperator plugin for Firefox. There's only a command bar at the bottom and my tab bar at the top below the titlebar. ;D

I'm starting to hate Firefox as it's been crashing a lot recently.

May try Opera.

I like it cause I don't need to get addons, everything I need/want comes with it. Speed dial is nice too. Plus is much faster browsing, startup times, uses less resources and overall I find my experience on it more enjoyable.

I've never noticed a lack of "new" web on it. Everything loads fine on it.

Firefox > Opera in all ways from my time trying each, but I guess we will see on the 16th if Opera takes over the scene.

I myself am too comfortable on Firefox with the addons I use. I will however check out 10 when it is done.
