    I am useing the 8.0 beta and it works really well. current opera users will be in for a surprise, the user interface has really changed. Changed for the better as far as I am concerned. I am not useing the speech commands but will try them out a little later. I do like this new version of opera better than the last.

    Are you still running Mozilla BigC, or back with Opera?
    This is really going to "supercharge" the "force", isn't it? :D hmmm... ;)

    mozilla 1.7.5 primary

    opera 8.0 secondary

    Internet explorer next to never

    thunderbird mail 1.0


    I thought I liked firefox until I went with mozilla 1.7.5. moz is a much more finnished browser than FF in my opinion ;)

    you can download here I just installed it right or my 7.54 version. No problems at all. it is the free version. if you have used opera before you might not recognize 8.0. A lot of changes in the gui.

    Well I've visited their website a few times, so the new GUI may be better to get used to. I've only ever run IE, looked at OffByOne also. Since I have NO idea what the heck Mozilla looks like, do you feel a go with the new beta is worth a shot?

    I haven't researched too much on safety plugins (if that's what I'm thinking) or compatibility with say IE-SPYADS,
    are some of these features built in?

    TIA, ;)

    this is a screen shot of mozilla 1.7.5 with the skypilot theme. I do like the new opera.but being used to the old gui it will take a short bit to get re acquainted with it. I much prefer mozilla over opera but opera is a very good browser. The way the new version of opera is set up may bring me back to the opera fold though :D :D I will say that the new ver 8.0
    opera is very fast opening pages or just surfing. ;)

    I don't usually like betas but the opera 8 works as well as a full release so far. I used netscape back when dirt was still clean and moby dick was still a minnow. :D :D ;)

    I tested the Mozilla, but it lacks some features ans some extensions doesn't work... It's very stable, but I need more...

    I will stay with Maxthon until I see that Firefox is really stable...

    Mozilla is applying features that have proven popular in Firefox such as tabbed browsing. It does feel stable but Firefox is more configurable.
    I use either depending on the mood I'm in. :cool:
