.com's definitely the way to go if it's available
forwarding your old domain name .... there are a number of redirect options .. you should do a few searches on 'redirects' and see which would suit you best

From an SEO point of view, do you think search engines give more weight to .com over .info?

Nope - but browsers will.
Think long and hard before changing, as the small seo advantage (that a new name MAY bring) masks many disadvantages - at least for a while.
When you forward, use a 301, and remove all content from the old site; get as many as possible inbound links changed to the new URL.
Try to buy the .com AND the .info - then 301 from one to the other - this avoids the situation of you having .info, and porn site buying .com and creaming off your visitors (and - in your case - damaging your reputation)
But - if the current site works, MUCH better to fix it than start over in 19 cases out of 20, especially if the name you aleady use has some weight. Why throw that away?

.com but we have a few nice .info examples too.
Those few websites are defently bet their .com compoetitors so its mostly about yoru knowledges.

Opera seems to...MSIE and FF tend to show their best SERPs results, others I've not tested.
