PostSubject: Opera   7/12/2010, 23:16

Repa, and everybody,

I receive Kim Komando's newsletter. Today it said Opera is about the fastest browser around. I'm thinking about trying it.

1) Do you use it?

2) Do you like it?

3) Yawl know how much I like Firefox. How does it compare to Firefox?

Thanks.

Don't use it so don't know. If you give it a try, let us know what you think.

Never heard of Opera the browser. Would definitely like your opinion.

Does it collect as much info on the iser as Google does?

Is it user friendly?

Does it give good results?

I suppose to find it one would have to "google" Opera search engine? LOL

I don't get a lot of time on the computer these days, but, if I install I'll try to post comments.

PostSubject: Re: Opera   8/1/2010, 23:13

Repa,

Using IE, I went to Opera website to download the browser. Got it in "My Downloads" folder, and when I went to run the setup, got a window that said "File Is Corrupt".

1) What caused that, do you know?

2) Do I need to delete/remove the download, and try again, or what?

3) I went to majorgeeks to try the download, and the page froze up, typical reason why I quit using IE, in the first place!

Hope you've got some answers for me!

Thanks.

Delete the corrupted file.

I had no problems downloading in IE from here:

http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=559&file=15&evp=4a0589a02b9b1c235f2a6bb4416d4252

and the file was not corrupted.

Note: if the File Download box doesn't appear, there is a line near the top of the page that says "Majorgeeks.com is a safe and trusted download provider for Opera. Your download will automatically start in a few seconds...

CLICK HERE IF IT DOES NOT"

If that happens, then click where it says "CLICK HERE IF IT DOES NOT" and you will get the File Download box with the Run/Save options.

PostSubject: Re: Opera   8/3/2010, 01:11

Repa,
I managed to get Opera installed. If I can get used to it I think I'll like it.

I didn't see an "Options", or "Tools", button to click on.
Do you know if there's an area that I can automatically clear history, etc., after each session?

I don't know why, but, recently, Firefox always gives me problems all the time now. It's kinda erratic.

I'll give update as I progress with Opera. I was gonna ask about how to Import my Favorites over from Firefox, but, Opera seems to do it automatically. That's nice!

Don't know, WC, haven't installed it yet. There are a number of tutorials on the web for using Opera, here's one of them:

PostSubject: Re: Opera   8/4/2010, 17:36

Thanks for the reply, and the link. Actually, I had discovered that link, unusual for me. ;^)

I read somewhere that firefox and opera are considered the 2 best browsers!
Do you plan on installing it, I hope???


EDIT: I think Opera has a forum on the site. Can you tell me how I should phrase the question with the proper terminology, so I can ask how to get rid of everything after closing out a session on Opera browser? Like you showed me on Firefox, where it says "Keep until I close Firefox", or something like that?

Many Thanks!

PostSubject: Re: Opera   8/17/2010, 23:38

Maybe I'm just dumb, but, I still can't find Tools > Preferences >, etc. in order to set the preferences to clear out each Opera session when I finish?

What am I doing wrong?

PostSubject: Re: Opera   8/18/2010, 15:51

Repa, thanks. Mine didn't have all that your screenshot pictured. Mine only had the "Menu" button at the top left corner of the screen. After seeing your post I fooled around with that button, until I got all the bars opened up at the top of the page.

Please tell me if I'm right or wrong on these items?

1) It appears to me that one has to manually delete the cache, cookies, etc. at the end of each session?

2) Is this 10.6 version of Opera a Beta?

3) And, is that good or bad?

Thanks.

WC, I don't know the answers to your questions because I am not presently using Opera. Perhaps I'll install it in the next few days and if I do, I'll get back to you. I do know that 10.60 is the last major version of Opera, and an update, 10.61 is available.

Do you like it? Is it at fast as they advertise it to be? Have you had any problems with it?

I've only used it some today. I've been waiting til I could find out how to clear the cache after each session. So far it seems to be faster than Firefox. I'll report more as I get more used to it. There's another site or 2 that I've had trouble with in Firefox. When I see how those sites respond to Opera I'll update here.

I think I'm gonna really like it when I get more familiar with it though! I'm anxious for you to try it, I believe you'll like it also. Plus, you know more about how to configure these type of things than I do. What takes me all day, or maybe never, to figure out, you are able to do in 5 minutes. I wish I was as computer gifted as you!

Please let me know when you get it installed? If you would, please post it in this thread. That way I'll get an email notice about it.
