It's funny how when it's the competitor's product people say "Don't use that crap! It's dangerous." But when it's the product they use it's "Well nobody is perfect". LOL

I use Opera as my main browser, I'm using 7.50 right now on this, and 7.51 on another computer I have here, and 7.52 on the ones at work. One thing I can say I don't like about it is that when you have to get the latest version, there is no update, you have to re-install it and then re-apply all your settings.Unless I'm missing something....

The one thing I can't stand about Opera is that when i use the close mouse guesture with only one tab open, it only closes that tab. So I end up with a browser open and no pages. I wish it would just close the whole browser when there is only one tab left. I haven't used Opera in a long time, so if there is a setting for this, let me know. It's such a small thing, but it annoys the crap out of me.

[/quote] You just install over the old version; all your settings will then be retained... But I do agree on that it's a pity that they do not release patches for it :(On the other hand the whole Opera release (without Java) is about as large as your averge IE update :Pabc; I do not think it is possible to close opera like that, you can always send them a feature-wish, they might listen to you... (or it could also be a hidden feature in the opera6.ini configuration file...)
