    For those who use Opera and are looking for free adblock, the following link provides an excellent adblock file for Opera that is updated frequently and works great:

    http://www.fanboy.co.nz/adblock/

    Click on the Opera button and save the urlfilter.ini file into the following:
    C:\Documents and Settings\"your username"\Application Data\Opera\Opera\profile


    The following is for Windows XP only. I do not have Vista.

    The "Application Data" subdirectory is a hidden subdirectory, so you may first have to do the following before you can download the urlfilter.ini file listed above:

    Click on “My Computer”, then “Tools,” then “Folder Options,” then “View,” click on “show hidden files and folders”, then click “Apply”. All done. Now download the file as outlined above.

    Hope this helps Opera users.

    it looks like it gives values to certain links which contain words you might be interested in so you can use the fastforeword button to get there. somthing like that anyway. i deleted that button and replaced it with a different fastforeward and rewind buttons.

    fastforeward is quite good, you don't need the button for it to work, if you go to google and do a search, then press the space bar, the space bar makes it browse down a page, but when you get to the bottom of the page because there's a link called 'next' it takes you to the next page :p (next is in the fastforeward.ini file). if you browse a site that uses a certain word you can put that in the fastforeword.ini too.
