@dlowan,
You should try Chrome, Opera was the best browser around till Chrome came out, and the difference between Chrome and the rest of the browsers is as big as the difference between IE and Firefox was when Firefox went big.

@Robert Gentel,
I tried Chrome, and went back to Opera.

But, now may be the time to re-try Chrome.

I guess that's going to affect you and your small warren of bunnies. What is that dlowan... 5 or 6 internet users around the world still browsing with Opera?! Wink



Serious?

Is that why Opera is having some trouble being accepted on some major sites, they're losing the battle big time?

That's a part of the reason, they don't have enough market share for some sites to write code for them and some sites (especially very JavaScript heavy sites) have to write different bits of code to support each browser. For that reason Opera has long had the option to identify itself to sites as other browsers (such as IE).

But do note that Chrome also has some sites that it doesn't play too nicely with (but they have a faster process of identifying them and fixing them) and no matter what browser you use you'll have some sites that don't work well with it.

Yes....but Opera is not working on sites I use a lot, like Amazon.


Schniff.

I find Chrome initially difficult because it hides stuff like edit and copy and bookmark and such.

I'll have to read the instructions.

Huh. Just found bookmark!


Sigh.

@dlowan,
I was a great proselytizer for Firefox until it started crashing and became sluggish. So when I finally tried Chrome, it took me a little bit to get used to. It's got a very friendly user interface.

okay, this is cool, i'm downloading some images to use for desktops, and when i download image 01, and a few minutes later i download another 01, all other browsers stop you and say, o1 already exists, replace existing one, and you gotta tag it yourself, chrome tags it for you as 01 (1), that's sweet

Two years after Google released the first edition of its Chrome browser, the search giant has launched Chrome 6, a platform that company reps says is three times faster at chewing through JavaScript than the original iteration. In addition, Chrome 6 gets an even more streamlined interface, a host of bug fixes, and an adjusted color scheme which is reportedly "easier on the eyes."

I read that IE9 for Windows 7 is significantly faster than Chrome! Freaky.
