Has anyone else downloaded it yet? I just finished and my overall impressions are it loads pages a lot faster than the 6.x series and loads a little faster than the 6.x. I like the tab idea instead of opening more windows and i dont like the aim version it comes with and that theme i just plain never liked for no aparent reason.

I downloaded Opera 6.05, and it also comes with the tabs for the multiple windows. I really like that, one of its best features. It also loads a lot faster than IE. Im still running Netscape 6

I can guarantee IE, will come out with the tabs sooner or later.

I just downloaded it and the installer crashes with an Invalid Page Fault. Not a very nice way to get people to use your software if you ask me. ;) But I'll be downloading it again sometime soon. I'm a big Netscape fan.

I'm happy to hear that it loads up faster. That was my only complaint was the startup time. Never had issues with pages loading slow, its always been lightening fast. ... I'll have to wait and see if I like the tabs...

well yeah it has always loaded fast but would still be loading some stuff while i was viewing, but now its like bham!

[EDIT]
And I just installed it on two other computers without a problem, maybe its a conspiracry against you mods started by Ethic, first Kermi cant install Folding@home and now you cant install Netscape...... hmmmm, he did say he was out to get you guys.

I got it, then it asks me to enter / register a screen name.

I decide what the hell, even though I do not use these things.

After I try multiple names inc 'qwerty123456' and 'AllTheNamesTaken' without getting one that is not in use it then tells me my email is being used too many times.

Bugger them then.


Why does it give me a box to type this post in that is less than a quater of the available screen, making it hard to see what I have typed? Still, is safer than IE.

I should cross post this on my 'pet peeves' thread.

yeah, Netscape 7.0 is better and faster now.
It understands now better HTML, JavaScript and CSS.
It think, that in 2 or 3 years Netscape can be better, than Microsoft Internet Explorer.

But at this time its hard for Netscape, cause they were bought by AOL (-> I don't know, how stupid some people are and why they use AOL, when they have some high prices!!!!):mad: :mad: :mad:

I use it now. So far I'm very pleased with 7.0, it is just as fast as IE was and the tab feature is most useful. :)

I'm liking it. I broke the conspiracy and downloaded it. _However_ ... *drum roll*... I'm really ........ed about this little tiny box I'm typing in here. novacain, I feel your pain... This better get fixed! I feel like I'm starring in Star Wars getting crushed by the garberator walls.
