            It crashes quite often to me since the last upgrade (never before) when I want to save images

            Opera 10 is IMHO the coolest release of the browser since the beginning of the project! It is just perfect!

            Perhaps you were using the dynamic Qt version (which is often unstable) and an incompatible version of Java ? Opera has been getting more and more stable for me the past 10 versions or so. Currently on 8.0 I am able to keep it running with over 45 tabs open for more than a week at a time without a crash.

            Perhaps give 8.0 another shot.

            Regarding plugins, they work fine for me (Acrobat, Flash, etc.), in fact Flash works far better in Opera than in other web browsers -- the zoom feature not only scales the page graphics and fonts, but also the Flash animations ! Wonderbar.

            PDF Conversions
            I'm offering my webpage to pdf convrsion utility to all of the browser projects and would love it if Opera accepted. I've built a online file conversion engine which takes public webpages, changes them to pdf docuiments and then e-mails the pdf document to the end user. A running copy can be found at

            If you want it, let me know.

            I guess you get what you pay for
            As of 7.1.0 I am officially in the market for a new browser.
            The suck factor has finally incremented past the tolerance
            stop and I'm done. This has all the same 'features' as the
            6.X seriies (spontaneous crashes, flakey rendering, poor
            java and javascript support, poor flash support, poor plugin
            support in general), with some new and improved flaws
            (S L O W flakey rendering, flakey 'new browser' rules,
            download directories must be selectedEVERY SINGLE
            TIME. no option for download window to 'pop up' instead
            of just creating a whole window. )

            I'm done. There are some great features but the pain level is
            too high. So long Opera, write when you get it to work.
