Give opera a try

If you've got someone that can quickly get you up to speed on Opera, you'll come to like it more quickly. If you're doing it by yourself, check out these links:

Aarrrggg! Can't get the parser to recognize these links

In particular, the Opera community and forums are a great resource. I just put 8.02 on last night and set about customizing the interface to my 7.5 preferences. There are many new looks and controls for the UI and I was having problems getting them configured. Two searches in the Opera Customization Forum and I had all the answers I needed to my problems. Plus the forums give a lot of tips on tweaking and improving performance as well as making the UI look like you want it. I'm also curious to tinker with the voice browsing. That'll be interesting. Anyone tried it yet?
