    Diggin' The Opera!

    The browser, I mean. I was using Firefox 3 exclusively until a week ago when it started acting weird (basically the browser ceased to function and then wouldn't end process when commanded. Hurt my feelings, actually, since here and everywhere I've been singing it's praises. I may retro-grade to a prior version to see if it behaves, but in the meantime Opera is the shizz! Very nice browser with some nifty built-in features. You might give it a test-browse if you're curious.

    I'm just sayin'.

    I've been using Opera for almost two years.

    I think it's much better than Firefox, and IE is pathetic in comparison to it.

    I still keep IE for occasional use. The Arcade here at FG doesn't work well in Opera. When I want to play, it's one of the very few times I switch to IE.

    D**n Rob....I thought you were going to tell us that you saw "Madame Butterfly"

    I don't understand about these browsers...why is one better than another?

    Generally, the sleeker the better. Internet Explorer is a bloated mess, or at least used to be. By comparison Opera uses fewer system resources to operate.

    I think that Chrome is faster than all the other browsers in all categories of measurement. Chrome had a few problems in the early stages but now seems to have corrected them.

    I run Ad-Aware and Malwarebytes about once a week, and since I switched over to Opera from IE, the adware on my hard drive is 'way less.

    I run Ad-Aware first, and it usually finds one or two tracking cookies. Malwarebytes generally doesn't find anything else (although it once found a tracking cookie that Ad-Aware missed) .

    When I was running IE, Ad-Aware would usually turn up 8-12 tracking cookies per search.
