I can't get over how nice looking the latest version of the Opera browser is.  Have you downloaded it yet?  It's so silky smooth it puts every other browser to shame.  It you haven't seen it yet give it a try.  I think you'll be impressed.

Their homepage is really slick too.  The catch phrase “beautifully engineered” says it all.  They go on to say “Discover the new standard in Web browsing. Download Opera today to get the fastest and most powerful Web browser available and make the most of your time online.”

Check out some it's new features.

For BitTorrent downloaders this feature really stands out:

Download Manager with BitTorrent

Opera starts downloading as soon as you've saved the file, so there’s no wasted time. Pause and resume downloads with the push of a button, and choose multiple files to download simultaneously without any fuss. Opera also features built-in support for the social file distribution protocol, BitTorrent, which makes it easy to download Torrent files without the need for a separate application.

And I really like Opera's Speed Dial feature.

Speed Dial feature

Typing addresses for sites you visit frequently is ineffective. Get your favorite Web page with just one click. Speed Dial is a set of visual bookmarks you see when you open a new tab, like a dashboard for your online life. To add a new page, simply click on an empty Speed Dial and Opera will make suggestions based on browsing history and bookmarks.

Quick Find feature

Have you ever forgotten the page where you found that great article or that perfect gift? When using Opera the browser remembers not only the titles and addresses, but the actual content of the Web pages you visit.

And if you're a intense researcher and like to keep many tabs open, somtimes for days then Opera's tab and sessions feature is great.

Tabs and Sessions

Opera is very light on your computer, so it’s possible to have many tabs open at once. Drag and drop tabs around to change their order, or get a preview pausing over them with your mouse. You can even save a session of tabs for later, making it easy to pick up where you left off.

I think it might be time to give Firefox a rest and start using Opera full time.  Internet Explorer… I waved byebye to you a long time ago.
