    Opera 8 has just been released earlier this week and has had an amazing
    return with over 600,000 downloads the first day.

    Opera Internet Suite's CEO says he will swim from Norway to the USA if in
    four days Opera reaches 1 million downloads!

    Of course.

    And me thinks Jon may yank out the power lead from Opera's web server when
    he sees the downloads reach 999,999. After all, he's CEO -- who can stop

    Doubt it. Given there are 10 towns in the USA called Norway, it'll be
    only a few yards swim in the local river/lake

    He said he will swim from Norway to the USA, if Norway is already inside the
    USA how can he swim to it if he is already there?

    i love opera and firefox.

    could never figure why Opera didn't get the same publicity as this latest

    firefox is my default browser now (love those awesome extensions)

    $'s? When both are equally good but one is free and one costs, its a no
    brainer IMO

  12. If you haven't stated that you consider Norway and the USA to be
    separate, it's perfectly possible. If I swam from the Isle of Wight to
    Southampton in England, it'd still be a swim from the UK to the UK. By
    analogy, swimming from a town called Norway (in the USA) to another part
    of the USA could be described as swimming from Norway to the USA. Clumsy
    usage, perhaps, but not inaccurate.

    IMHO Opera Ver 754u2 was better than Firefox, but Opera Ver 8.0 Build
    7561 hasn't been better for me because it keeps crashing when visiting
    my regular web pages. Opera has been my default browser since Ver 5.12
    but is now no longer my default browser.

    does Opera cost?

    I must have a free version (haven't used it in a few months, since latest
    firefox came out)

    Yes and no.
    Opera is free to use, as long as you don't mind there being
    advertisements displayed at the top of each window. Register it, and the
    ads disappear (as if by magic :)

    I like Firefox pretty much, but one can't compare Opera and Firefox. We
    could compare Opera with the Mozilla Suite, but Opera is light years from
    Firefox and Mozilla. Opera is free of charge.

    Only if you don't mind the adverts. Since I have all sorts of blocks to
    get rid of adverts, I'd rather use a free browser that doesn't subject
    me to them.
