Opera 7 for Windows could put users' privacy at risk, experts warn, but say it is still safer than Internet Explorer.

Ya, you just have to figure a ground up rewrite and a rushed beta testing process was going to result in some holes. Even so, Opera still in a league of it's own when it comes to security and privacy. I believe this is only the 5th problem they've ever had.

If microsoft is gonna copycat so many programs why can't they also copycat the response times of the other companies!
