Firefox does this, minus it's escalating memory utilisation.


You say this like it's no small thing. Firefox's resource usage is getting out of hand. I have an old PII750 tower system with Kubuntu that I mostly use as a home server, and occassionally as a desktop. I can load Opera, bring up Google, execute a search, and click on any one of the returned links in less time than it takes Firefox to even load. Let alone the way the system will start to crawl after a couple of hours of Firefox being open with multiple tabs.

I see no reason to bother with Opera. About the only thing I find it useful for is coming up with ideas which other browsers copy.


Some prefer to lead. You prefer to follow... ;)
