Opera Software Opera 9.5 has been released, beating Firefox 3.0 to the punch which is supposed to be released soon as well. The marketing speak: "Opera's cross-device expertise, support for open Web standards and commitment to speed and performance culminate to create the most powerful Opera browser yet. Making its desktop debut in Opera 9.5, Opera Link blurs the boundaries between computers and mobile phones by enabling a seamless Web experience from device to device." Get it from Opera.com.

Different configurations, different computers, different OS, different architecture, osv...

Being the sophisticated crossplattfrom piece of software that Opera is... a lot of things can go wrong!


True, but at the same time, as I mentioned in a follow up post - I tested Opera on 3 different operatng systems on 4 different machines - and couldn't reproduce what he experienced. All my stuff is as vanilla as it gets, heck, I don't even change the colour scheme or background - and everything works smoothly.

Having worked at an ISP (and thank god I don't work there any more), I've come accross all manner of butchered and bastardised machines by owners who tweaker, twirl and manipulate their machines - then wonder why all hell breaks loose.

I've see people install rubbish of all manner of backgrounds, from 'email enhancers' to 'speed boosts' - and I can tell you that when they came in, I did a clean install of Windows (or what ever the OS is) - the go, "wow! its so reliable". Yeap, its reliable because it doesn't have all that crap installed on it!
