I've been trying Opera on and off for years. I've always wanted to like it since it has a lot of interesting features, but I've never found any of them good enough or interesting enough to stick with as my main browser.

All that changed with 9.5 alpha. I've been using it for month now on both Linux and Windows and despite being alpha it hasn't crashed on me once. It's fast it's slick and it has all kinds of cool features. Opera 9.5 is now my default browser, and the only thing I use firefox is my internet bank which refuses to work with opera (although my bank claims they're fixing it). So if you've been looking at Opera for a while and never been quite sold, I recomend you check out 9.5, it might just change your mind.
