I have had Opera as my default browser in laptops since the days of 3.x. I began with Opera Mini on a 'phone in 2003 and added Opera Mobile later on.
Opera on the PC was always so FAST and could keep up with my highspeed typing.
Opera 24 on my new Toshiba W50 Workstation Tecra is slower than IE on a bad day. I can load Chrome, IE, Firefox and SeaMonkey/Mozilla twice over before the Opera URL is fully launched.
Will there be an uprade soon, or is the end of Opera being fast? My DSL provider told me in advance that Opera 24 is "not a very good browser" and so far he's right.
