Inported IE bookmarks automatically and completely - much better than Firefox. Firefox didn't import any of my Chinese bookmarks - without warning.
The font size is similar like IE - larger than Firefox and looks better.

They've also done lots of nice little changes to the mail module - all good so far.

I also like the fact that it upgraded my 8.xx install without fuss.

Works well here. Hope it doesn't get f'ed like 8.5. That was my browser of choice until it inexplicably stopped working and using up all my cpu cycles.

Denty, didn't you know that's a FEATURE of Opera? It will run great and then suddenly it'll repeatedly lock up while using your whole CPU. They'll blame the bug on flash, claim they can't replicate it... and then miraculously "fix" it for the next version... which will eventually do the same thing.

Sadly, Firefox... pretty much works the same way. I'm back to IE, sadly.

Well, I ran it for almost a week, and now I'm back on Firefox. Firefox is a better browser overall. Find as you type, better text box controls, etc, all add up. There are a few features I like about Opera, though. the FF and Rewind buttons are kind of cool.

Fnd as you type in Opera: hit . or , (latter for links only), F3 to go to the next found item. What do you mean by text box controls?
