have you tried opera 10 alpha?

http://www.opera.com/browser/next/

They sure made flash 10 work flawlessly in it- youtube works flawlessly- flash websites work better than in firefox even..

deviantart seems to crash the browser randomly

Trying it on Light 6 B1 right now. Had to make some symlinks to get it running:
/usr/lib/libQtGui.so.4 -> /usr/lib/qt-4.4.1/libQtGui.so.4
/usr/lib/libQtCore.so.4 -> /usr/lib/qt-4.4.1/libQtCore.so.4

First impression is favorable.

I hope it doesn't suck like Opera 9 for Linux

Opera 9 sucked so bad, I'm still using *chokes back vomit* Firefox

I've installed it in Vector 5.8 and like it too but I've also had crashes with it. I'm back in Seamonkey atm.

Hi folks!

Glad you brought this thread up blurrymind! :) I've always been a "Mozilla App" person myself and have kept "the other guy" (Opera 9.5*) around for whenever I wanted a break in the routine. One day when taking such a break it opened up to the "Would you like to test drive Opera 10?" page and I thought, "Sure! Why not? I can't dance!"

I've loved it so much that I've become about 50/50 now in my browsing habits between SeaMonkey and Opera. For email, however, I've still remained with SM/TBird as the Opera 10 client is yet quite buggy in that regard. But hey---it's an alpha build. When they finish with it who knows? I'm impressed with what I've seen of the email client that's for sure---it just can't handle my volume of email.

As for the browser though: I haven't had a single crash to date. Even they say that the bittorrent client doesn't work and yet it's worked for me. Go figure! The one problem which I have experienced, however, is that sometimes if a link is... how do they say it now?... "java-related" I think it's called? Then those links won't function whereas plain html-formatted links do work. I can't recall precisely where I'd run into this problem, whether it was trying to follow up on another distro review at Linux.com or one of Vaughan-Nichol's reviews, but the links at the bottom wouldn't "click". Returning in SeaMonkey the links worked just fine.

And that's been my one and only problem to date. Of course I don't do a lot of "heavy surfing" like some do. I have just specific pages and forums I visit and that's basically it. But I've enjoyed it so much so that I've replaced my 9.5* and 9.6* versions everywhere in my 6 distros (except Wolvix as the libc is outdated) to the new Opera 10. :)

Amicalement/Cheers!

I always use latest development versions of Opera. So far haven't been disappointed. Opera 10 is much improved in m any areas.
