    Nice to know. Just curious why this is under Windows Networking?

    Good question, to which I cannot remember, good you are keeping people on their toes.

    <edit> the excitement got the better of me having to wait since Tuesday :down: must have thought I had clicked the right forum and not noticed I hadn't.

    A friend of mine just started working for Opera. He's been on my back for not installing Opera yet. I guess I'm going to have to install it anyway... :)

    well my code is pretty much completely valid, only ever broken by the odd news article throwing a non-general ascii character in there.

    I used Opera years ago for a while. Was ok at the time. No real interest in it now though. Although i should give it a whirl to test out web pages and stuff

    The older ones sucked, they seemed to have wittled out the web view, flash, activex, etc bugs with it in this version. About the only things I see wrong with it is that all the links are blue (Makes it difficult to see them on certian color web sites), and on some password protected sites you have to log in twice ...

    Other than that, they improved it ... I seem to like it better than Firefox .. Then I don't really use it enough to decide. So far I like it better than firefox ..

    [edit] O.k, I figured how to change the link color. tools/Preferences/web pages/normal link color. Changing that will change the color of links color to what you want. [/edit]

    Would give it a shot if there were a Mac version of 8.
