"I don't know where the poster was getting off claiming it was bloated because both you and I demonstrate how slim Opera is compared to firefox."


Bullsh*t. All you've demonstrated is how slim Opera is on /YOUR/ system. Opera is more memory hungry than FireFox 2 on my slackware build. However, unlike you, I ("the poster") was not paraiding my personal experience as fact - I was only pointing out a few niggles I had with an otherwise exceptional webbrowser.

Perhaps next time, instead of posting meanless self-benchmarked statistics, you could actually post something constructive to help streamline my install (like the other replies managed to in varing degrees)

Hey, firefox is hungrier here as well... about your comments relating ugly fonts, are you using static-qt or shared-qt build? If you use shared-qt, you will get nice fonts and I think that Opera will also be lighter, it will use slack's qt lib.

I find it interesting that you're abusing me on the forum for the exact thing what you did. You posted here your experience based on your 'meanless self-benchmarked statistics'.

I never made an attack on your personal itegrity, I jjust find it interesting how there can be such a large disparity between the reported memory usage that I and the previous posted reported and what you claim.
