Opera Soft has removed the banners and licensing fee from Opera!

I hope they have other sources of revenue, so they can mantain the software...

I do like thongs, sometimes they make good gifts Wink

However this is not the origin of this nickname. In european portuguese slang, tanga also means "bullsh*t" (besides thong).
Some friends called me that when I was studying in college, because I allways had some more or less credible answer for exam questions, even if I didn't study much Cool

I've been using both FireFox 1.0.7 and Opera 8.5 on Win XP Home SP2. Opera seems very slick with many nice features. It's free, so I can't complain. Smile

For me Firefox, but I didn't try any recent versions of Opera (I tried it about a year ago).

Tried opera, used it for a while amd have recently gone back to firefox.

It is strange, opera for me doesn't seem... 'right'.

I'm the same as decard, I prefer firefox, but havent used Opera in a long while. IE.. i rarely use, saying that, im using it right now as its the only browser in the university machines. Firefox is nice, but can sometimes be a memory hog (It likes to cache everything in memory, which is good as it makes some things faster, but if your using swap, and you have a slow HD, it can really slow things down).
One funny thing I've seen is how it's now "cool" to use Firefox. Some people here even bring firefox on a USB pen drive, just so they can show off to the person next to them that they are rebelling against Microsoft, while still using Windows. Laughing
People dont know how to rebel nowadays. Twisted Evil

FF isn't buggy from what i noticed, but there are rare crashes
I saw a classmate use Opera, and indeed, it does not feel "right".

Strange, what do you mean for "right"?
I've accustomed to Opera functionalities and I have no issues so far. It works exactly as I expected from a browser, no more, no less.
And althrough it crashes (not very often) I didn't consider it "buggy"
