It even has a built-in EMAIL program that rocks too! So no need for Eudora or Thunderbird, Opera does it all.
If you are still running those old buggy virus-spreading programs like Internet Explorer/Outlook Express or Firebird/Thunderbird, go give Opera a try. They've never had a virus target them, and the program has some pretty nifty features.

I used to be on top of all this stuff until about '99. And I do appreciate your comparative analysis for those of us who haven't kept up with this sort of thing.
And really, I wasn't aware of all the problems with Firefox.
I have a friend that uses K-Meleon. It looks similar to Opera to me. Any opinion on K-Meleon?

I think I will stay with Firefox and Thunderbird for now, but I will keep and eye on Opera. Thank you for the suggestion.

Cool to hear. I might give it a try when I have some time to learn.

I've been using Opera for several days, since I found my Firefox browser deverloped a bad habit of crashing following the last two upgrades.
Opera is quite good. It very closely mimics MAC OSX.

No post in a while. I'm guessing your having Win"DOH"s problems again.

NicK: Nope no Windohs problems. I don't post much on weekends, usually. I was out hiking, when I was not working on the new novel (which is about 1/4th done right now, word-wise).
PT, K-melion is just Firefox with a faster graphics library.
SH, my Windows got compromised via a virus that targetted Firefox. Thus why this is being posted via Opera :-).
