well, i don't like opera and both the renowned ladies voted for it... seemed like a good enough put down to me!

I tried opera on windows and linux and yeah it was stable, but i don't think it supported java when i tried it, and it just seemed so utterebly drab interface wise. not sure why really. i didn't like the tabs, but now i think they're one of galeons strong points...

huh? why wouldn't you? only a total twonk would spell it without a 'u'.

that's one of my biggest grudges against programming GUI's and so forth... i have to spell colour wrong in order to make the thing work... i could write a wrapper for it but somehow.... no.

I voted for Netscape. I've always seemed to
flip-flop between IE and Netscape in the
past. Since installing Linux, however, I've
gotten very fond of NS 6.2. I tried Opera 5
yesterday too -- it seems pretty neat.

What exactly is a 'twonk'? And are there degrees of twonk? For example your 'total twonk' as opposed to other twonks? Like a half twonk, or even a quarter twonk if only your grandfather was a twonk? Am I actually BEING a twonk right now? I know I can be a complete yahoo fairly easily.

Thanks Tricky for sticking up for us





I love Opera over the others I have heard here. I am a speed demon, and Opera is the only one that seems to be able to keep up.





And Blue, Opera now supports Java.



And BTW- spelling color as colour is actually the correct way of spelling it. There are two forms of English.. the English way, and the American way.



Unfortunately, many Americans think that everything should revolve around them, so they like to change things. However, if you ever studied the English language, you would find that we spell many things incorrectly even by our own standards. But unless you want to start a war, or at the very least get in trouble for correcting a teachers (cough, cough),dont ever try to point that out

OPERA!!! It handles the Netscape plugins that Netscape themselves couldn't handle. Fast and stable. Not only is it multi-platform, it is multi-gender! :-)
