Is Opera the best/fastest web browser?...Im using IE6 (dont like IE7) and I was wondering if opera is a better choice over Firefox...im running windows Xp right now and I just bought a second hand/refurbished IBM thinkpad and the laptop was running great for weeks now however today its been a bit sluggish so ive done a bitdefender scan and downloaded spybot however I think I might download opera...I use opera on other computers in the house however I was just wondering if others use it as well or do you use Firefox.

That will depend on your system.
On some systems, Opera is faster, while on others, Ff is faster.
I tried both, and on my system, Ff is faster.
Since they're free, try both of them, and see which is faster on your setup.
It's also nice to have one as a backup, in case the other one starts giving you problems.
