"When it comes to Web browsers, we all know the two main
players, and probably not a whole lot more. But there's an
"alternative" browser out there gaining popularity and challenging
the big boys in both form and functionality If you haven't heard of
Opera, it's time you did."
"Opera packs a lot of punch in a small, lean package. The
application weighs in at a mere 1.5 Mbytes... installation takes
less than a minute. The latest version requires only 4 Mbytes of
RAM and 3 to 7 Mbytes of hard disk space. Compare this to current
versions of Communicator and Internet Explorer that both weigh in
at over 20 Mbytes and require at least 16 Mbytes of RAM."
"By focusing heavily on customer feedback, Opera Software has
established a strong user community. The company realizes the power
of word-of-mouth advertising, and asks its users to help spread the
word. The Opera browser is said to adhere to strict HTML
standards, and independent tests by the Web Standards Project and
Web Review have verified that it does better than either of the
main browsers in this area."
