I just downloaded Opera and was tinkering with it. Now I have disabled the speed dial view and can't for the life of me turn it back on. Can anyone help?

Duh... nevermind. I went to the Opera community forums and it took me to a page where I could reset defaults.

Wow, I love Opera!
Mozilla Firefox is a complete kludge compared to this, it goes on the scrap heap now. I still need to learn about security with Opera though. Probably continue my online banking with IE7.

It's slightly dated, but the first place I send new Opera users is to this site: http://operalover.tntluoma.com/ Scroll down and on the right side you will see the 30 days series. Nice overview of all the cool stuff Opera does 'right out of the box' and zero 'plugins'. Also a nice Operawiki here: http://operawiki.info/Opera

The only thing I use IE for is M$ patching. Otherwise it's my default browser.
The old 30day course Animal referred to is my favorite :thumbsup:

I wouldn't do online banking through IE, though IE7 is certainly safer than IE6.
IE is just too tied with the internal routines that it's scary.
Opera has no ties. Much safer.
You can import all your favorites out of IE7 to Opera, use them with most rights and then lock down the whole thing to keep malware out. Site-by-site settings are cool.

Enjoy!
