    I used to use Opera (ad-supported version). Even if it was the no ads version, there were still problems on encoding other languages' text (some kanji = []). Opera is a good program, but to me has a lack of compatibility with languages and loading times are about a minute (could be the RAM)

    Well, I used to review this software. Got some compatibility problem with some secured/non-secured site. Anyway, I use the default theme. Its the best theme for Opera.

    I was using opera to test websites but then I istalled some fonts and the whole thing has gone crazy even v8.0 beta 1. Need less to say its gathering dust.

    I downloaded Opera because I heard some people really liked the browser; I tried the browser with the advertisement...I still have it, but I like Firefox better.

    I have to agree with Gamerx100.
    I didn't like the banner to the right.
    This post of mine from pcriot describes how I feel about Opera.

    i used to use opera before firefox and maxthon came out.. it's the first browser that i've ever used with tab browsing in it... and yeah.. their banner is disturbing however it's good enough compared to IE and the best thing about it is... it's fast loading

    I agree, and the keyboard and mouse shortcuts make browsing sites really really easy. IE gets very frustrating when I right-drag to the left to make it go back and a stupid popup menu appears, its then that i realise I'm on IE, not opera! :D

    No offence, but I must say that Mozilla FireFox is a lot better then Opera.
    It's free, skinable, you can install various useful extentions, ad-free, tabbed browsing is supported, sophisticated web page design is being rendered better etc.

    Opera now has a selecyion between right-side graphic ad, and a thin, small text banner.

    Yeah, Mozilla FireFox must be a weapon of choice for everyone who surfs the net alot.
    Lets see what will Internet Explorer 7 offer this year. I have heard that it will have lots of improvements including tabbed browsing (it is the most important functionality making me use FireFox). Maybe then I will abandon using FireFox. :pinch:

    Opera is the second choice of My Web Browser. I Like opera because it has download manager (transfer manager) so we can stop and resume the download anytime.

    if we got some trouble with our computer (restart) we can start opera from 'continue last time' or with no page.

    My Favorite browser is mozilla firefox.

    I like blue for my opera themes.

    If you have narow band connections like dialups, then Opera is the best, you can see whats going on. Opera 7.0 & above comes with "Java Web Start" truly great to see java apelets on sites. Suprisingly IE 6.0+ doesn't has JRE. So good choice who need JRE.
