Everything I've compared it [searchengineworld.com] to on Windows, from IE 4 up to IE5 and NN4.7 to Moz .96 leaves little doubt Opera is faster than any thing available. I can only imagine that there is something specific about the Mac UI implementation that is slowing things down.
>having a problem with the wheel on their mouse in Opera
The weird "reverse scroll" phenomena with some mice drivers (ms) has been sporadically reported. What's your os/mice driver combo Xoc? The logitech wheel drivers are working better than ever before here (with an ms optical mouse no less).

Just to make sure I understand you -
under Prefs (ALT-p) -> Network -> Server Name completion
you have "com.mx" (no leading period) in the box, and "try name completion using" checked?
Just for reference, the list of alternatives is a comma separated list. So you could do "com.mx,com,net,org"
