Opera Software eWeek reviews Opera 9, and is full of praise: "It's a good bet that if you want to see the features that other Web browsers will be adding in a year or two, you should download Opera 9, which was released on June 20. The free Opera 9 is available in Windows, Linux, Solaris, BSD and Mac OS X versions. In our tests, we found Opera 9 to be one of the best Web browsing tools we've used in a long time, which is why we are giving Opera 9 an eWEEK Labs Analyst's Choice award." They have a set of screenshots as well.

I don't think the last version of opera was ready for the big time. It was a great browser, but on Linux at least, it crashed fairly frequently.
In the same light though, neither is firefox's extensions feature as a large number of extensions make firefox crash often.

I really like this Opera though. I'm especially fond of the fact I figured out how to set the render delay.

Yeah, I had a lot of problems with it crashing in linux too. Which made me sad.

I do some work with tomcat, and has anyone else noticed that where you used to be able to just type:

devel:8080

and it would just go there it no longer does? It works fine, until you have a port number in there. That's going to be annoying for me....
