    since we still seem to lag without hardware acceleration, just thought I'd give the new opera 11 a run... not quite scientific, but just my own interest.

    On Peacekeeper -
    Opera 11.00.1156 - 7213
    Safari 5.0.3 - 5116
    Chromium 10.0.603.0 - 5088
    Firefox 4.0b9 (20101226) - 4762

    and then a javascript (sunspider) test, but only with chrome, since thats what I use.
    chromium 10.0.603.0 - 243ms
    opera 11.00.1156 - 273ms

    So looks like its now on par in the javascript and the best at html5 rendering so far...interesting...also finally has extensions!

    Opera does well in benchmarks but in my experience, it's just a lot slower in opening pages for some reason

    heh, yeah, it looks a bit nicer this time around. I've never really been an opera user outside of the mobile space, but always interested to see what is available out there.. (Steel, Shiira, iCab, OmniWeb, etc)

    If they had a better cookie manager, I'd consider giving them a spin, but for the moment, I'm still mostly with Chromium 10 unless it has a compatibility issue.

    Seems I also can't spell browser in the title, doh. lol.
