Opera vs Firefox Browser - Opera's much FASTER!
Jan 1, 2005

Although Firefox is my default browser I also keep Opera and IE in my machine.

I have two different pbase galleries and to avoid having to login and logout when switching between the two I use Opera for Digipets and Firefox for "isabel95)

I have discovered that of the three, Opera is by far the fastest displayer of images on pBase!

When I click on a thumbnail the entire picture appears in the blink of an eye.

With IE the picture comes in from top to bottom in rectangular blocks.

With Firefox is very slowly rolls down.

I am using Bell South's high speed DSL. I thought perhaps our switching to a wireless network had something to do with slower speed but it's probably just the browsers.

Has anyone else compared the speed of these three browsers?
