anyway check out the link below for more info on Opera 10.5

Opera 10.5 Pre-Alpha is All About Speed (and Private Browsing) - Opera 10.5 - Lifehacker
There was another thread about it and yes it's looking good (and is quick), but is as buggy as hell ATM.

I have only used Firefox & Internet Explorer, up until IE8 Firefox was my preference of the two.
Slnce the release of IE8 it has been my prefered browser, although i still use both.
And my preference is only rated on speed although i am very aware that most people find Firefox faster

When will these threads END!?
Both browsers are good, and both suck as well. Just like any other browser.
I can clearly see that most people lack the ability to simply friggin' CHOOSE which browser has the best features and options compared to the way they use the internet every day. I personally switch back and forth between Firefox, IE8, Safari and Chrome, one each month. Opera sucks completely so I don't use it.

I prefer FF3 - easy to customise/backup/restore and skinable!

Nothing like that in IE8

My primary browser is Chrome, but I use IE8 because of banking needs that I perform that I can't get done in Chrome.

I dropped FF awhile back but I may need to revisit it in the future, but for now, I'm using Chrome because it is faster for me.
