Any input would be appreciated. Friend replaced IE with Opera and raves about it. Any one else have any opinions? I'm running WinXP. Pros/Cons?

thanks

I've hear many praising Mozilla, maybe I'll look at it also. Right now just "shopping". Since I'm still new at this "computer stuff" I think I should take it slow. I even get confused with some of the replies for help. The terminology makes my head spin!

Thank you for your input.

As I undestand it Opera is an ad sponsored browser.If you pay the $39.00 you won't get the ads.

Like Grinler, I too have not even considered anything but FireFox.

No,unfortunately these ads are built into the browser not pop-ups.
Here's a nice screenshot.

Opera with no ad
HTH with the decision making :thumbsup:

Well, I guess it won't hurt to check it out for the weekend. If I don't like it, I'll get rid of it. Thanks for the info.
