    Is Opera better than IE?

    Hi all, I like to know from your experiences, why most people prefer Opera than IE? But IE already enough for me even though I'm always online about 10hrs per day, there's less trouble using IE. Friends of mine also recomm me to use Opera, he said opera is much secure browser and much features.

    If most of you agree that Opera is better than IE, then maybe I will go for Opera or any others Web browser that you all recomm.

    I think it all depends on what you're looking for in a browser..
    For some, it's speed.. for others it's flexibilty or security.

    If speed is what concerns you, then test out your browser here.

    It might be nice for all of us to post results.. So here are mine for the picture file only.

    and yeah don't laugh at me because I'm still on 56k

    Firefox
    Loaded 225455 Bytes in 103.510354042 seconds 17.42Kbps is your thruput

    IE
    Loaded 225455 Bytes in 76.2662968636 seconds 23.65Kbps is your thruput

    opera
    Loaded 225455 Bytes in 56.1922199726 seconds 32.1Kbps is your thruput

    crazybrowser
    Loaded 225455 Bytes in 57.7036011219 seconds 31.26Kbps is your thruput

    myIE2
    Loaded 225455 Bytes in 77.4087781906 seconds 23.3Kbps is your thruput

    Opera wins..

    (had to delete the pic from the cache to test myIE2 and crazybrowser correctly)

    Yawn..... firefox all the way. One feature that opera has over IE is the multi tab feature so you can have like 20 pages open in one browser. I think IE is the only browser without this that i have used

    JohnHack,

    Well if you have the disk space available, download them both and you can take them for a test run yourself. I use all the browsers and have seven for windows and almost that many for linux.

    cheers

    I am in IE at the moment, but I usually use Mozilla, and Opera as a fault finder....I really should buy a MAC to do proper site testing..............I cheat and get a mate to use his...buy him a couple of beers?

    Cheers
