    Opera is the best browser, no doubt about it!

    Learning to like it but a few things not as good as firefox such as noscript, https everywhere and flashblock.

    I only upgraded to it on my Mac, and I am sorely disappointed I did. Wish I was still using Time Machine for backups because 12.10 is using 35-45% CPU just sitting there doing nothing and gmail refuses to load (can't even get the login page up). I'm a little timid to update on my PC just because if I lost Opera on both computers I use regularly I'd be in a world of hurt. Hopefully on my Mac I can get by with Safari long enough for 12.11 or something to come out.

    Testing 12.10 on a low-end Windows 7 desktop (provided work computer) and I'm having no such idle CPU issues. Can anyone else test this out to see if it's OS related?

    The society of Opera people is like that of Linux - they are convinced, self-proclaimed #1, but nobody cares about them, to which there always good reasons.

    In my practice I pulled away from Linux twice, and from Opera 3 times. The combination of Win7 + Chrome is the best today, don't waste your time trying to convert me again - won't work this time :)

    I couldn't find anything online with other people having problems with gmail, but I did see some complaining about CPU usage. So I'm just timid to try it on Win 7 when 12.02 is working fine.
