Opera takes some getting used to. I've had a couple runs with it and finally got pushed into it again by an operazealot friend of mine. That seemed to be the ticket ... everything I grumbled about, he'd go "Oh, well, just do ... " and that'd fix it.

I'm quite addicted to it now.

Thanks, George.

I am not mad for Opera, but I do like to test web sites in it, and sometimes it works in Mac-phobic sites that nothing else will, so I am glad to have a registered copy.

Do you prefer it to Firefox?

Anyway, thanks to George’s alert, I got a registration number, and will give it another try. I am typing in Opera right now, in fact.

In one sense I'm no fan of Opera. But--I've found problems in my coding by viewing in Opera that I overlooked in other browsers. And--it seems Opera does lay out the font nicer, and that much, can be addicting. I'm not certain on the security rating. I do get at least some Opera traffic on my web site, so I have to check it out one way or another.

Regards,

George

Thanks for the heads up !
I got one for my Mac and another for the PC, It looks like it has a lot of very good features, in a bit unusual interface.
Firefox is too slow on my underpowerd PC, but Opera looks like it it may run fast enough on that machine.

Yes. Emphatically! For one thing they get tabbed browsing right. Firefox is nice but Opera just feels more polished.
