    I don't like Opera because you have to pay for it to get rid of those annoying ads. I see enough pop-ups on websites, I don't want to deal with another in my browser already. I haven't had a problem with Mozilla 1.3 yet, and if you just want a browser, try out Phoenix. I think only you can decide which browser you are going to like best

    Phoenix rules! Besides, the Mozilla group is going to start using that now and ditch the old and bloated Mozilla code.

    I use Opera 6.03. I love it, i don't even notice the add, and the mouse motions are wonderful. However, I recently tried upgrading to 7.03 and found it to be slow and horrible...so I've gone back to the speedy 6.03.

    opera sucks....
    I hate it..... to think about the usage of opera.....

    Big lacks in the scripting engine, not enough support for JavaScript, yes it understands w3c html standard, but it's just a Internet Explorer clone based on bugs.

    Mozilla is my favorite browser at the moment, because:
    -it's free
    -it understands javascript and it's w3c optimized
    -html 4.01 (w3c +adds)
    -MathML support, which is very important
    -you have all the other stuff, like java, flash, shockwave, quicktime plugged for it...
    -it's very fast

    and it doesn't cost you a penny!!!!

    >>so the general concensus is that opera is faster, but lacks scripting support.

    In the newer 7.0X versions, Opera has almost full scripting support. Most of the reviews of Opera you're getting are in old versions. Give it a try.

    On a "weird but true" note, the Opera 7 beta didn't have ads, and I updated (I have 7.02 right now, RoD's made me wary of 7.03) to a newer version, and the ads aren't here. Mabe installing over the beta suppresses the ads?


    //edit: I have Phoenix but I don't really like it all that much. It's so minimalistic. To tell you the truth, I can barely live without Opera's mouse gestures anymore. They are, without a doubt, the coolest thing in any program EVER.

    yes the mouse gestures own me right now. i try to use them with IE at school, I just keep forgetting. Actually, I believe the free version of the final Opera 7.0 had no ads. Then I upgraded to 7.01, and it did, and has since then with 7.02 and 7.03

    There is a broswer called Phoinex that is based on Mozilla, it is smaller and doesn't have stuff like news groups and email and stuff. I like it alot, it might of already been mentioned, but I would say it's one of the best.
    If you ever need a hug, just ask.

    The thread just called. It asked that you READ IT BEFORE POSTING.

    I went from the beta, to the release, to .01, to .02 and still no ads :dunno:. And yeah, I always try to use gestures in IE, too. It's annoying.

    Mozilla is far more better than opera. First, It shows web-page as it is, while Opera can "forget something" ( I use v7.02). Second, Opera sucks when it komes to saving site to you hard-drive - it realy does something wierd. Add to this some special features of Mozilla and you have "best browser on earth".

    hmm... weird...

    i didn't have the beta, i tend not to use beta versions. it doesn't bother me anyways, i don't notice it there anymore. i actually barely use that toolbar, combo of keyboard and mouse gestures.
