I used to use opera way back when (ver 6 or something like that I think), but it got so buggy and crash prone, that I changed to firefox. I have been using it for a while, but it seems to have gotten slow and takes massive amounts of cpu power and memory (even on an e6300 with nothing else substantial running).
Does any one have any ideas on whats causing the high cpu/mem usage with firefox or have any opinions on opera (I used opera for wuite a while but quit when the new versions got unstable a while back)? Any thoughts on how the latest versions compare? Opera seems to be much quicker at first look.
On a side note, internet exploder is just as bad (speed wise at least) as firefox, if there might be any quorilation.
