    only change I've found so far that I don't like is the key command to paste and go to a url, otherwise I've got no issues

    I like the new default skin and it does feel a little snappier than the old version after some usage :D

    Chastity, what key command do you not like to go to the URL?

    Alt+D is what I use for all my browser :eek:

    I installed on my work system and this sucker is awesome :D

    All the FF fanboys really need to get off their high-horses and give Opera more kudo's. It is so much more polished and faster.

    paste and go in 9.5 crtl+shft+v, instead of in 9.2x ctrl+b, though at the moment that is not my major issue, it seems to be using more ram then 9.2x did

    This is wicked fast, I am enjoying this very much especially the synch across all of my comps.

    Chastitiy why not just go into tools>preferences and under the advanced tab redefine your shortcuts to opera 9.2 options?

    Yeah it beats the poops out of Firefox on speed. I'll keep playing with it, because I hate missing out on something good just because I haven't tried it.

    thanks for the tip falconguard, though actually it was a bit simipler then what you suggested, they have the keyboard setup of 9.2 listed so selected that.

    Now to figure out the reason its using 72MB of ram or more at the moment

    Hmmm, Opera 9.5 is using about 4 MB less than FF3 for me right now and neither is consuming even half as much as FF2 did before.

    I'm liking it myself but can't figure out how to pin the bookmark sweet to the left panel the way I'm used to in ie and firefox, any suggestions?

    It's in the panels options. Open the bookmarks panel and it should appear. It will automatically pin to the side.

    Alternatively, the toolbox icon on the left side next to the navigation button's should toggle it.

    Well I'll keep an eye on it, and research it. Right now 126740 K memory useage with 2 tabs so something is rotten in there or somewhere

    would like to change the font, I can't find that in appearance, is it available?

    edit, it's in preferances not appearance...odd, but got it

    now does anyone know how to overide the page font to use what I want instead?

    I also can't get the font size to stick

    To get it to use your font prefs, I think you need to go to:

    Preferences > Advanced > Style Options > Presentation Modes.

    What Speedy said.

    Also, at the bottom right of the page is the view size. For some reason mine was defaulted to 110%. I changed it to 100% and it made everything look correct :D
