Mr. Wilton-Jones had "had enough of these unfounded arguments" and decided to test the browsers. His results are somewhat complicated because he tested on various operating systems and didn't provide an overall fastest browser. Instead, he rated them on various criteria like how quickly they started up or downloaded images. But for Windows, his tests show that various iterations of Opera were fastest on each of the tests.

Yeah, it's that much better.

that is to say save the html element of the page and the accompanying stuff in one separate but linked folder ..that way one could save pages and later read and discard what turned out to be "not so interesting" ..without having to pick through the chaotic way that opera actually saves the pages into which ever folder one has designated as the "save to folder"..
I use opera to browse ..firefox to dev and save ..and IE to make sure it works for those who like spyware ..
if Opera could save in the same way as the other two ..if they made it payable again I'd pay upfront for whatver they asked ..til then it browses like it's on speed ..and saves like it it's been smoking badass weed ..
I found the article, but it basically mentions this person and links to their site for the information [howtocreate.co.uk...] You can leave the link or edit it.
It's a pretty good reference and it allows you to sort by clicking the column headings in the tables.
Opera is talso the fastest in my opinion and offers the mostcustomization on layout etc. Now if they could just come up with plugins like FF.
i've been a fan (and a paying customer) for many years now ... i think around 1999 and i have certainly evangelised it! however it is a really good example of how people will not change and stick with what they know.
side note; the one thing that irks me is glossy computer mags who write articles about browsers, and they all seem to recommend firefox these days over ie, however they rarely if ever mention opera.
the only person i know (outside of WebmasterWorld) who has ever used opera except on my recommendation was a girl at the royal school of music who used it purely because she thought the name appropriate for a music student!
