Smile opera is really nice!

Just wanted to give feedback on (surprisingly good) software that I have discovered:

After using it for quite some time, I found Opera to be absolutely superb, both on Linux and windows.

I have gone through Netscape 4, found Netscape 6 terrible, tried out mozilla (ok) and found Opera and stuck with it.

here are the reasons:

-Most pages run on it (guess about 95%)
-You can deactivate pictures with one click (no more banners)
-all the windows open inside opera (in case you hit some ominous sites, that push your browser to open 10000 windows, it's all contained and can be killed when you close opera)
-it's very fast.
-when it crashes, it will ask you if you want to resume where you left of, with all windows restored.

That's why I prefer opera. Hope it helps someone in the browser-confusion.

Which version do you have? The "free" or the "paid" version?

It's fast huh? I like the caching!

I like Opera quite a bit myself, but I don't see me shelling out more than $ 0.1 for a browser when I can get a pretty darn decent one for $ 0.0
