Opera 8 Beta
I'm posting here using Opera 8 Beta. The biggest difference in Opera 8 is that it can be controlled by voice. Unfortunately, I don't have a microphone hooked to my computer to try this. I see some minor changes, such as buttons on every tab for closing the tab. Also, when I start fresh with a new window, I see a small panel near the address area with some choices. This seemed pretty distracting at first, but now it is starting to look useful.
I have a feeling there is not much more for me to see. IOW, not a slew of new interface features. And as for what is under the hood, I haven't been able to test enough to see a performance difference. But, being an Opera fan, it will be pretty easy to get me to upgrade. The first version I bought was version 6, I got a free upgrade to version 7, and I can't see complaining now about giving them a little more money to upgrade to version 8, assuming it renders pages better.
I also use Firefox and IE. Opera is my favorite of the three, because of its navigation and book marking features.
