Blimey! You reckon? I find Opera /painfully/ slow on my Ubuntu
machine. (Athlon XP 2800+, 1GB/120GB). I use it when Firefox is too
busy due to several dozen tabs, but it's too sluggish for normal use.

Alas, though, the Chromium-browser won't run on my Athlon.  [Tries it
to cut'n'paste the "illegal instruction" error.] Oh wow! Nix that. As
of today, it does! Fantastic!
