No problems here. Just started playing with it for real though. Seems nice..... love it so far. But then, been an Opera user for years.

I haven't messed with it for the past couple of days, because it seems to have a significant memory leak. Windows popped an alert on it's memory usage and asked to close it, which I did. I will check it out further when I get the time.

Update. I like this version but you can certainly see that this is an Alpha. I've had problems with video's on multiple sites. Not so much the video itself as to keeping the shot in the frame. Some pages do noticeably load faster than others. Feels "jerky" for first little bit after a page load then smooths right out. No crashes or memory events. Looks like a real winner when finished.

I was considering of switching to Opera but it lacks a few things and there are not extensions for it. IMO there are no good browsers any more. FireFox went insane, Chrome wants to know your Life, IE is still trying to build the house and Opera is trying to show off it's muscles in the closet.

Use stable version of Opera 11.5/6? for now. This will be nice soon. Still no major major problems , no crashes, but clearly a work in progress as stated.Yahoo says "they haven't tested this browser yet...", but when I go into mail it works beautifully.Very quick/snappy. Lickin my chops for this ....... soooooo close!

What do you feel that Opera lacks? I don't know that they would work on the 64 bit version, but Opera certainly has extensions (Tools>Extensions>Get Extensions).

I have been using it as my only Opera for some time - no major problems - although I alternate between browsers, so take that as a factor.

There is extensions but not what I need, and there isn't a whole lot of them either.

I guess that 948 of them is not necessarily a lot, but what do you need that is missing?

I have to agree. I don't run many extensions myself but then in my personal usage I don't really need many and Opera either has the feature(s) "built in" or available as extensions. Have found nothing "missing" that is even potentially wanted/needed. Curious myself seekermeister.
