I use Opera on both my PC and my Mac. I love this browser. Fast as Netscape, stable as IE. And, in the windows version it has a built in pop-up blocker.
If you haven’t given Opera a try, I say go for it.
(BTW, if you decide not to register your copy, the ad-ware version is a non-intrusive ad in the toolbar.)
I don’t like the MDI interface. But Opera is fast. I still prefer Mozilla though.
You can turn off the MDI interface in the Win32 version as well.
Too bad they don’t update their BeOS port of Opera. However, I understand the economics.
I don’t like the MDI interface.
Opera 7 has more of a semi-MDI that probably would fit you nicely. It’s like Mozilla only that popups show up inside the windows. So yes, it’s regular MDI only with better window management. But finally ctrl-n gives me a new tab and not a new window. Well virtually anyway.
I have the windows version, but since I use Mandrake mostly, it doesnt do me much good! My fonts in Opera 6.1 (?) are really crappy in linux. Really looking for something much more appealing.

Oh boy, another chance to paste my screen shot!
Most likely if you’re having font issues with Opera it’s because you don’t have X configured properly, or the build of Qt you’re using doesn’t have Xft support. Otherwise Opera should look like it does in that screen shot (which is under FreeBSD, but the same goes for Linux as well)
And its not just opera, even the KDE file manager is U-G-L-Y! I have pretty much given up hope of having a normal looking system, but at least Mozilla and Evolution are tolerable.
I just find it quite funny that the first poster says:
…Fast as Netscape, stable as IE…
I have never felt the wind blow when running netscape, nor have i experienced a stable IE…
I’m using Chimera on OS X and Galeon on Linux / FreeBSD. I do use Opera as well, but find I like Chimera and Galeon better.
All well and good, but when is Opera going to get moving on their Solaris product? It’s still stuck at Opera 5 Beta 1!
Where I work (using w98) we have choice between 2 browsers. IE6 and Netscape 4.7x.
In loading the homepage (http://library.nevada.edu) Netscape loads it lickety split but crashes about 3 times an hour. IE takes a longer time to load pages, but once loaded rarely crashes.
For me, Opera’s the best of both worlds in both windows and mac.
(And at the moment, I’m writing this using 6 on OS X. Haven’t tried 6 in classic Mac OS, but I know that Opera 5 was slow in X and crash prone in classic OS.)
Well, Opera is not for me, that’s for sure. It’s slower and uglier than Chimera. Besides, it’s not free.
I still prefer Omni Web.
don’t you think this is rather late, especially Opera 7 is coming out on Windows soon, and the same for a beta for Opera 7 for Linux. Why actually does Opera neglect their Mac customers more than their Windows and Linux customers. Heck, back in the day, Opera released products faster for BeOS than Mac OS now.
