Thanks Mak.

I'm currently using the Opera 9.5 "Kestrel" weeklies, they're damn good.... the features set is just awesome, it's definitely the most user-friendly browser out there by far.

Only problem is, this version is a CPU hog :frowning:
It takes a lot of processing to do some of the really cool stuff they have (like indexing the contents of web pages so you can go to a uri by title as well as by uri) and it's just too much for this P4.... old users won't be too happy. I just ordered my new mobo and cpu, so that's a non-issue for me though.

I am not currently using the Kestrel since it doesnt allow for bookmarks to work correctly. I use that feature alot. Espically from within the Personal Bar. But i have used the first couple of weekly Kestrel builds and loved them.

Yeah i just seen that. Hopefully it is working right now. Getting close to Beta 1. That is even better news. The Beta's are always top notch. I have never had a issue with them.

Hey Guru sorry for the double post here. But i was wondering. What kind, if any, javascripts do you use with Opera. Do you use anything at all. I have the urlfilter.ini working to block over 90% of the ads out there. But i also have a Orangoo Spell checker working as well. Just wondering if there is any other good ones to use. I knwo with Opera dont need much if anything to make it better.

Yeah, they really do need to update their aspell for Windows package... I wonder if Opera will use aspell on Linux though? It's a much more straight-forward process in the *nix world.
