    I'm just not sure why Dirtbox cares so much about people using Firefox.

    I wish they'd hurry up and release a new version of 10 (that isn't horribly broken like the snapshots). There doesn't seem to be much point in installing the alpha at this stage, but I do like to have Opera around.
    There are, you can get the latest from here.

    I love Opera but it's such a memory hog with 6 tabs open its using 200,220K and IE 6 or 7 (don't know which one I have) has 11 tabs open and its 74,392K

    Also when I close tabs in Opera the memory footprint doesn't decrease, what gives?

    edit: using Opera 9.25, i'll upgrade & see what happens

    Is that with alpha 10 or 9.6? Both can hog a bit, but the turbo snapshot of 10 (in the above link) is pretty good.

    Just launched, Firefox is using 26,016 K and Opera 24,776 K. With this page loaded for some reason, Opera is using 50,924 K and Firefox 44,540 K. I'm using the most recent versions. I find the browsers equal, except Opera doesn't have an equivelant to some of Firefox's addons.

    Does Opera have an equivelant to Interclue?

    Yeah, there was a java script that did that, but it was a bit buggy at the time. I'll have a rummage as it must have been updated by now.

    Hehe, I missed Opera's introduction of face gesture browsing, although they could have done with finding somebody to demo it who could properly suppress a grin :)

    That wouldn't work for me, I'd end up at the bottom of the page permanently when reading EG

    Oh, cool. I just noticed you can drag down the tab bar and have the tabs as preview pics instead. Swish as fuck, but not exceedingly useful.

    Wow, it goes like a rocket with Opera Turbo turned on - at the expense of image resolution right enough, but impressive anyway!

    I've been on overdrive trying to find ways to improve the browser and found [link=http://homepage.hispeed.ch/ttt-o/button/h-bu-toolbars-adv.html">this. Many buttons that you can add to the interface to improve it's functionality or better still, you can
