    This has been discussed before. Do you have photoshop installed? I believe it's installed with that or some program...

    By the way, Opera is the greatest browser there is. Find it and use it.

    Edit: For example, here and here

    Dreamweaver used to install it, although I don't know whether it still does.

    I found it on my mac the first day. I don't use it though. I always assumed that apple stuck it on there to keep out of a lawsuit (MS EI lawsuit type thing).

    I digress, why would anyone want to use opera when safari or Firefox is out there.

    I think he was pointing out how ridiculously ignorant your statement is, and how ironic it was considering it was a post that contained something you claim to hate in your signature. Why would I want to use Opera? Because it works better, looks better, is faster, and is a more innovative browser that gets most features before other browsers, implements them better, and does more things out-of-the-box, while still maintaining a strong ability to add-on.

    There are some things that Opera does well; for example, in Opera you can click on a bookmark and get it opened in a new tab. I use Firefox for 85% of my browsing and Opera for most of the rest. I rarely use Safari.

    Thanks,
