    The very very earlier release of 8 was called "Opera 7.6 BETA", then it became a revised version in opera 8 beta. I still have the original downloaded file that they themselves named 7.6 BETA.

    I've used firefox, both new and old. I wont form an opinion based on ignorance of having never used the software. I dont like it, i like opera, and this thread is exactly why.

    OK, but if you actually compare all of the numbers, the latest version of Opera still beats the latest version of Firefox. I don't see your point. Also, he does use two versions of FF, although I have no clue what Moox is (edit: Oh, an optimized version).

    Anyway, who cares what browser you use? I just thought it was funny, since every time I say that I like Opera because it renders and feels faster, people are quick to tell me that, No, Firefox renders faster.

    The browser I use is, by default, better than yours. Even if I'm using lynx.

    My brower displays html files. im happy. i use *******.
    If one browser takes 2 seconds longer than another to load then who cares? and if you do care, you have problems.

    There was no 7.6, RoD.
    Weird because when I go into About: Opera it tells me:
    Version 7.60
    not that it really matters. Opera > Firefox (And yes I have both)

    I use the Mozilla suite. It beats Firefox AND Opera because it comes with more stuff out of the box that I use.

    Nyeh. I like FireFox because its name is cooler than Opera, and also because I haven't tried Opera yet Of course, about a month ago I was rooting for IE...

    Jeez folks, it's just a web browser.

    Internet Explorer does me just fine.
