    "Light, fast but incomplete"

    November 13, 2009  |   By liveinNH


    Small footprint, loads up fast, loads pages quickly, clean interface


    does not work on some sites, incomplete functionality makes it hard to use


    I guess there is a reason that Firefox and IE 8 use more RAM and take more time to load up. Overall, not a viable day to day browser.

    Opera had trouble rendering four of my favorite sites, but after a little tinkering with java, they all work perfectly. Opera is light, fast, and ABSOLUTELY COMPLETE. It blows Firefox, Chrome, and Safari out of the water.

    I've found that by changing my cookie settings to zero privacy, Opera will work on virtually any site. What does that tell you about IE and Firefox?
