I haven't tried Opera yet, but, with all of the ADJUSTABLE PARAMETERS and EXTENTIONS available for Firefox (compared to IE), I suggest that you do some more READING *before* 'jumping ship'. I recommend (in alphabetical order while reading my EXTENTIONS List):
- Adblock (or Adblock Plus)
- FasterFox (but *JUST* for the timer - I customize the parameters via ABOUT:CONFIG)
- Image Counter (to judge the 'damage')
- No Script (to limit the 'overhead')
- CookieSafe (to limit the 'overhead')
- PopupMaster (to limit the 'overhead')
Personally, I cannot see how a "NATIVE" IE vs Firefox vs Opera vs ??? can be any "huge leap
" from the other (*especially* for a 56kbps OR LESS connection). *BUT*, I can see how PROPER TUNING
*CAN* 'possibly' make 'some' difference...
