The browser is alright. It looks good and the new features are good.

But websites doesn't behave or look that good anymore.. That is one huge downside.. :(

Take a look for yourself: Opera 9.5

Tried it on the Mac last night and it runs very well - noticeably faster than Opera 9.27, Firefox 2, and iCab 3. Bet a lot of Mac fans will say that the GUI is too "colourful" - but I think it looks very smart.

Not sure what you mean by the look and behaviour of websites, certainly the Mac version seems spot on.

Yes, it's a lot faster that previous versions. It looks very good in my opinion. But if you dont like it you can always change skin and edit it as much as you like.

The windows version dont format sites that well. I see lots of bugs on Newsvine.com this forum and other sites that in previous versions of Opera had no issues. :(

And it seems it have some problems with the cache memory...

It's interesting. Apples Safari (for Windows) has less "bugs" than the new version of Opera has.

Maybe Opera released their browser to early?

Im gonna try to re-install a "fresh" version of Opera 9.5 later today. My current Opera 9.5 got upgraded from an older 9.24 Opera version. Might be because of that everything acts awful..

So I am running Firefox 3. And I like it.

I have used it for like 10 mins now and there is, so far, two things I dont like with it:

1. The yellow folders. Gods that is one ugly yellow colour.

2. The spell checker when you publish comments (like here in this forum). I can't seem to make the spell checker go away or change into english. Now every word I type is marked as wrong spelled. :( Make it go away!!!!

I have been using IE and Firefox for years for web development purposes. If you are working on a application you have to go with the high percentage. Between IE and Firefox you have it covered....

I tend to neglect IE users.. I don't want to make my sites work in IE..

If people choose to use an old, insecure and buggy browser then they'll just have accept that websites dont look or behave as good.

Thats how I feel at least ;)

Usage share for April 2008

  1. Internet Explorer: 74.83%

  2. Firefox: 17.76%

  3. Safari: 5.81%

  4. Opera: 0.69%

  5. Netscape: 0.56%

  6. Mozilla: 0.16%

  7. Other: 0.12%

Another source shows that Netscape dropped and Firefox has gained. Either way the top 3 account for 98.4% of the user community. Once you cover above 90% trying go cover anymore has no ROI. :)

Note that it takes Opera and Netscape together to cover 1%, sad note on where Netscape used to be.

I've downloaded the British version

The folders in my bookmarks are sort of light tan, will check and see if we have any way of changing the folders icon.....

Hopefully the future will mean writing sites to standards, it is then up to the browser companies to render the standards. This will stop Opera, and others, being critisised for not coping with bodges designed to make sites work in Explorer, and sites written with poor standard compliance M/s (and others, Serif etc.) web site writing programs.

Take a look at the screenshot:

So ugly!

I use the swedish version, I dont think there is a difference between the different language versions..

Firefox 3:

If you have downloaded the brand new Firefox version 3 you can find a little Battlestar Galactica easter egg. Check the above screenshot for example.

This is how you do:

Just type About:Robots into your address bar and hit enter. Enjoy! :)

"Welcome Humans!" is this from something I don't know?

"We have come to visit you in peace and with goodwill!" The Day the Earth Stood Still

"Robots may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm." I Robot

"Robots have seen things you people wouldn't believe." Bladerunner

"Robots are Your Plastic Pal Who's Fun To Be With." Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

"Robots have shiny metal posteriors which should not be bitten." Futurama

"And they have a plan." Battlestar Galactica

And on the tab "Gort! Klaatu barada nikto!" The Day the Earth Stood Still (which is being remade with Keanu Reeves - originally scheduled for release in may it is now scheduled for December 12
