    I downloaded it yesterday because I was having trouble d/ling nws and I was pretty impressed. I'm going to see if I like it more than S3

    whats the lowdown on it?

    edit: I can't figure out if you have to pay for it either :dunno:

    They changed a LOT of the keyboard shortcuts, if you're used to the older versions. Kind of a hassle.

    I also have some rendering issues that I didn't have before the upgrade. I haven't been bothered enough to downgrade my PC, but I never upgraded my laptop.

    sweet, thx

    the only problems I have with it so far:
    • sometimes when I'm using a drop down menu it'll beach ball.
    • "find in page" feature is not as cool as safari 3
    • can't drag tabs out to form their own window
    • no smooth scroll
    • no auto spell check like safari 3
    what I like:
    • I like the look and feel of it
    • speed dial is awesome... I wish they would apply it to your bookmarks so you can see them quickly. I hate trying to read links
    • the windows vista preview thing when you hover a tab. although this doesn't get much use since I use a tablet and never keep my hand that still
    • slightly faster than safari 3

    I'm not sure if I will go back to safari... probably after I get tired of opera :o
