    Opera makes browsing forums such an annoyance.

    While I won't outright condemn it as shit (I like a lot of things about it) I've been having problems with it too. Crazy memory usage, pages not loading (get stuck on "downloading document"), and pages getting stuck in the middle of loading.

    Ideas, suggestions?

    My biggest issues with it are as follows:
    1. Getting errors when attempting to download files from BlackBoard (school site)

    2. Some site's cookies are not deleted upon close while others that I wanted to keep and had previous to launching Opera are deleted. I know same may say user error but I cleared all cookies, went to the sites I wanted to keep the cookies from and closed the program. Then I reopen the prog and tell it to delete new cookies upon close. I have gone through each site's individual preferences and see no reason for this annoyance and it is only on some sites.

    3. Having to tell it to represent itself as IE when I could just use IE.

    But there are quite a few nice things about it, I'm not sure yet whether I will continue to use it since I have to have IE6 open as well some of the time. Probably will keep it installed and use for browsing when bored but not much else.

    What are you doing that requires IE6? ActiveX or .NET thin apps?

    My school's main website doesn't support Opera, I didn't need to tell it to use IE specifically, could have told it to use FireFox and that would have been fine too.. http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=3830257&page=3 post 63

    I just don't like FireFox so when I say I use IE6 instead of Opera it is for that reason, not ActiveX or .NET

    Telling itself to "identify" or "mask" itself as MSIE/Mozilla is *NOT* the same as using those browsers. It is simply a hack to get around STUPID BAD CODING PRACTICES DONE BY THE WEBMASTER of the site you're viewing. It's still being rendered by the very capable, and SAFE presto engine, which is exclusive to Opera.

    If you use FF or MSIE you're just opening yourself up for malware and other compromises.

    Didn't say it was the same. And I don't see how you can completely blame the coders of the site when the pages load just fine in IE. Opera needs to be more adaptive and be able to still properly view those horribly coded pages like IE does. Other browsers can do it, why not Opera?

    You believe wayy to much propoganda. I've never had any issues with security using IE6 and I go to questionable websites all the time. So long as my AV and SpyBot don't fail me I have no issues. I have never, since I've been using computers, been infected with a virus or had malware issues. When I run Ad-Aware and Spybot, the only things they ever have issues with are just tracking cookies, which would be the same with Opera.
