This email is written using the little engine that could.

I've been using Opera for browsing, email and newgroups for a couple of months. Some observations:

I like
* speed of browser. Yes, it's true. Loads faster too.
* builtin popup suppressor. Ha!
* good toolbar customization -- can search google (or site of your choice) from toolbar
* tabbed SDI
* very cool zoom view on web pages using mousewheel interface. Also very customizable - e.g. can assign combinations of mouse clicks to Back command, etc.
* quick preferences (e.g. turn pops on / off / minimized...)
* Import and Export Menu.
* file transfer window - nice display of downloads, plus can resume broken downloads
* email system works and somehow more likeable than Eudora, Outlook, and Netscape

I don't like
* doesn't support some javascript, but I suspect this is the javascript's fault, and not Opera's. E.g. http://members.surfeu.fi/kklaine/primebear.html can't get past the number two. I still have to keep NN and IE around for
prime number research, but then I need them for webdev anyway.
* seems to do something unpredictable with line breaks in my outgoing emails -- ?
