My PC has been disabled because of a power supply problem. So I've been using my old laptop with Windows XP. A friend suggested that I use Opera to browse Windows XP.
Whoa, the Web is much, much faster. Before, I considered my laptop to be unusable for browsing the Web because Explorer was just too slow and Hotmail would put me into a mobile/iPhone mode. Now I can use just about any website, including Youtube. I don't really care about Flash sites like CNN or CBS Sports because I use this laptop for work. Maybe it's because Flash is automatically disabled and that's why it seems so much quicker?
Anyone who've used Opera for XP know the performance vis-a-vis Chrome or Firefox? For example, these articles recommend Chrome, Firefox or Opera for those still using XP, as Microsoft won't support Explorer any longer.
How secure is Opera for Win XP? Is it trustworthy enough to make e-commerce transactions? I had to make 1 transaction and routed it through Paypal due to my misgivings about XP.
Also, how does performance (speed) compare among Opera, Chrome and Firefox on XP? Thanks.
