My vote's still with Icab for alternative browser for the mac -- or, the speediest of all - Transmit (just the text, and nothing else, ma'am)
It's also good to see that, with the exception of 4eyes, all the bugs reported so far are fairly minor. We wouldn't want to see a repeat of Netscape 6.0! (Actually, I reckon Netscape lost more market share by releasing 6.0 than they would have by releasing an updated 4.7. Anyone got some market share figures from around that time?)
I've been giving Opera 6 a spin. I might replace IE.

Exactly. Take the recent Internet Explorer 5.5/6 cookie security error. Combined with other exploits, they say it was possible to decrypt all the passwords stored in the form manager of IE.

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).

Whoa, let's file a press release if that happens. whew. At a minimum, I'd like to negotiate the world wide first distribution rights to the story.
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"
Yep, that is the exact mouse/OS combo people are reporting a problem with. I expect it to be addressed in the next release.
