    I've heard from many people that with Opera browsing the web is actually faster. Now here is the question, with Opera (even on 56k) can browsing actually be faster? And how??

    Its alot faster. i dont know why its so much faster than explorer.

    I know one reason is it saves past pages so they can be cached later.

    It a has built in resume broken downloads incase you get knocked off line in the middle of a download....its the best browser for the problems that 56kers have

    If your system crashes while your browsing, it remembers the pages you were on and asks if you want to pick up where you left off

    Built in pop up blocker than works 100%

    Recently, MyIE has attracted IE users and most of them are replacing IE by MyIE which is just a customizable version of IE with popup blockers and other tools. Storing cache is really not a good thing which apparently opera does. This way when you visit the page, its not necessarily new/updated instead its loaded from the cache. You can always press Ctrl+R to refresh the cache also, but why bother keeping so much space for visited sites. Looks to me as waste of Mb's which laters turns in to waste of Gb's :-)

    anything is faster than ie since these non ms nav&#39;s arent build into the os. mozilla is another promising browser that is completely FREE and RELIABLE.
