Well....why use Opera if you've got two better alternatives....Mozilla and Mozilla Firefox.....However, if u ask me to choose one among konqueror / Opera...I'd stick with Opera....Opera's Windows version is good....and I''ve used it for sometime on Linux too.....but I would still prefer Firefox over Opera in any case.

Regards,

amit

I agree

Mozilla Firefox opens the same pages IE does, and *much* faster. I used to use opera, but don't anymore, as it cannot open all pages nicely and is closed source. Firefox gives you speed, reliability and no banners

get it at www.mozilla.org/products/firefox

cheers

is it possible in firefox to make it so when you click a link, and it opens a new page, instead of a new instance of firefox, it will open in a new tab?

Also ctrl+left click is a quick, easy way to open a window in a new tab.
