very good. I'd never seen it before,
Nice to see you like it.

I've tried - honestly - to like Opera for several years now. I can't
stand the GTK+ look/feel of Firefox and Opera is built with Qt.
However, it just never quite works right either on Wintendo or Linux. For
example, I've yet to be able to get it to do Flash or MPlayer in openSUSE
nor can I do the same in XP/Vista.
Well, that's OK, I still can't get firefox to do java on 11.0 x86_64
without installing the 32-bit version. Konqueror handles the weather loops
just fine.

Neither Firefox or Opera can handle the following javascript applet:

p=yes

Why not David? My Firefox 3.0.3 64bit displays nicely on 10.3

Bob,

Thanks, I'll have to check the version on 10.3, but it should be the
latest. I
just checked and nogo on my 10.3 x86-64 :(
