Opera Software A few days ago Opera launched a placeholder website which said they were going to "reinvent" the web, on June 16. Well, it's June 16, and Opera has announced Opera Unite, a technology which allows individual Opera users to connect to one another, turning every machine running Opera Unite into a web server.

That's a fair point, but just to clarify, I meant that I switched when Firefox became faster and more lightweight than previous versions of Firefox. My wording probably could have been better.

In my experience, earlier versions of Firefox appeared to suffer from serious memory growth. Firefox 3 was much better, at which point it became usable for me. In contrast, all of the versions of Opera I've used provided me with good performance.
