Windows 7: Opera - Favorties Bar?

Opera - Favorties Bar?

I'm thinking about trying Opera out. If I do:

* Does it automatically take the place of IE9?

* Do I lose everything I have already set up in my current browser?

* Is there any way to import my favorites into Opera?

Thanks much.

1) sort of, it will automatically set itself as the default browser, but this can be changed by launching IE9 again

2) No, the two are completely independant

3) The first run wizard should do that automatically for you.

Hope it helps

Sure does! Sounds like I don't have anything to lose here.

Thank you very much for the quick response too.

No problem, for future reference, the same rules apply for all of the non MS "Big 4" (Chrome, FF, Opera, Safari) unless your upgrading to a newer version of the same browser

I've already started playing. Thanks again. I've discovered I can run both @ the same time (I love dual monitors!).
