    Thanks a billion — I prefer opera and have been using it long enough now that I know my way around and can appreciate the power-user-friendly layout. Have tried firefox time and time again, always running into some major inconvenience that makes me want to become violent and cause damage to the surrounding structures, etc. 😉
