I was going to d/l that but the fact that it's beta doesn't seem very appealing.Has it ever crashed or caused any problems to you so far?When the official 7 comes out I'm sure to get it.I don't know how pepople can live w/o mouse gestures.And going back to a page, you do not have to wait until it reloads. Opera rules!http://turnhead.com/dot/alex/banner-retro-cool.gif

I bought and used Opera a couple of years ago and loved it. It was clearly faster than IE. The problem was that some sites I regularly visited would not work with Opera. That is the only reason I went back to IE. I might download it and try it again. Perhaps these problems have been resolved with the latest versions.Have you come across any websites that don't work with this latest version of Opera?

Yeah, heaps of web sites don't display correctly in Opera. But for those that do display properly Opera does it the best :-) On the other hand, Internet Explorer has no problems displaying almost any web site...Kitty MercuryCathay Pacific Virtual Pilot (CX252)

Hi Kitty,I guess when people develop websites, many of them mainly test them out on the "big name" browsers. I do know Avsim works fine with Opera though :-)

>And going back to a page, you do not have to wait until it >reloads. Opera rules! This is a REAL problem with Microsofts' IE . I remember the "old " days of IE3.2 -- the temporary Internet cache worked as it should -- but this feature has been "broken" ever since. Whenever , you click BACK , it redownloads a page that you have already been to -- sometimes it does, and sometimes it doesn't !!! It is THE most annoying thing about IEBarry
