Opera has its perks but it just didn't cut it when I needed it to. Eg: if I download a patch, say, I don't need a browser that packs up halfway; meaning I have to download from scratch.

Here's what happened earlier: I wanted to download the patch for Command And Conquer 3. Its 263MB in size. After about 100MB it just stops. All other pages open fine so its not my ISP. Anyway I start again; this time it gets to 140MB before it stops. On my third attempt it got to 80MB. That's 320MB wasted!!! I don't have that kind of money to waste.

So I switch to IE. Download worked fine first time. Explanation anyone? This has happened one time too many.

Due to the market leading status that IE has held for so long - some companies over optimize their pages/sites for it's use this can cause all sorts of issues for users with any other browser.

This issue is normally seen on Microsoft sites and banking sites but can effect others too, this is a possible reason for issues with a particular site

I agree, yet I don't like to be fully reliant on Microsoft.

Big disappointment
Have just tried a test power up on the new Asus P8Z77-V board and the error light adjacent the 24 pin stays on. Now thinking it was a RAM stick I changed out the stick for the other one - same result. Have now tried all combos with two / one stick/s and it seems the problem is in DIMM slot B2...
