As you probably all know I'm a big supporter of Firefox. But since my work is dealing with web technologies that constantly evolve here is some exiting news about an Opera browser.

Version 9 of this very fast and feature full browser came out several days ago. It's considered the fastest browser on the market but that's not the most exiting news for me.

They pass "Acid Test 2" !!! The second browser in the world (after Safari) to pass this test. For those who are not familiar with it the test was designed to use whole bunch of web standards technologies.

Btw, IE7+ looks like Opera 4 when it runs the test. And Firefox does not fully support SVGs and a couple of rules so it's almost there in terms of the result.

lol, good one...

Don't switch over. It's just a very good alternative to Firefox. Doesn't have the extensions but it's faster and lighter.

It's depends on what you need. I use Opera on my Pocket PC (Minimo - Firefox clone for Pocket PC is not ready for prime time yet) and it's great (much better that Pocket IE).

Opera is excellent and this version 9 is cool too. It has some "extensions" and also built in bittorrent support and some other stuff too. Definately worth checking it out.
