I’ve been an Opera user for, umm, a really long time now. It’s the bestest, fastest, coolest web browser on the planet.
It’s more secure that Internet Explorer. It’s more complete than Firefox. It’s faster than Safari.
I’ve been running betas, dev builds, and the release candidate for a while. It’s got a slick interface, it’s easy on the eyes, and it’s solid.
It has some quirks. A couple of things in the WordPress backend aren’t rendered properly. (Or, it might be more accurate to say they are rendered properly, but what it’s rendered is coded incorrectly.)
Is that a reason not to download Opera? I don’t think so. Opera is one of the most standards-compliant browsers on the market. If you want to see how something is supposed to look online, you look at Opera.
Give Opera a try. There’s very little learning curve. There’s nothing additional you need to download. It’s an integrated Internet suite, with e-mail, RSS capabilities, newsgroup access, and chat capabilities built in, right under the hood.
Opera. I swear by it.
Give it a shot.
