Free Opera

September 20, 2005

The Opera web browser has been set free — no more banners, and no charge.

I’ve been playing with the Mac version (they are offering both Windows and Mac versions for free) a little, and I’ll have to say this for it, it’s bloody fast — far faster than Firefox, and it feels quite a bit faster than Safari as well. No actual measurements, just subjective impressions…

The downside is I’m not sure I can live without some of the plugins that make Firefox such a joy / necessity to use. On the other hand, if I got rid of about 90% of my plugins, Firefox might be quite a bit faster also…
