Opera Killed Itself With An Update This Morning

I have no idea what they did, but Opera became slower and the routines for drawing the screen were all messed-up.

It took me less than a full day of use to decide to ditch it, it was that bad.

Rather than go through the hell of rolling back, I decided to give Firefox 3.6 a try.

It’s not as fast as the first iteration of Opera I had (which was heaven!), but it kicks the asses of both Chrome and Safari.

So, for now, it stays.

As they say, YMMV.
