Opera 9.5 gives Firefox 3 a run for its money

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 85.53.24.104] on June 22, 2008 01:02 AM
After using Mozilla, Firebird, Firefox for years, I eagerly dowloaded Firefox3 on dowload day to give my little contribution and help break the record. I installed it in my Mandriva but I could not use it. It told me I needed new GTK and Glib libraries. What a Disappointment ! What a Mess !! I decided then to try the new Opera 9.5 .It installed in seconds and worked like a clock. What a nice surprise ! Fast "little" browser !!
I just don't have the time nor the inspiration to spend a day to upgrade my Mandriva 2006 to something newer just to use a new browser. I guess from now on I'll stick to Opera. Thanks Opera.
