I've used opera on both my mac and windows for several years. i tend to like it alot except for occasional html complexities or something that don't always work right. hopefully those will be resolved with the latest release. Anyhow, Opera had been acting slow lately on my Mac, no problem with the Windows version. I completely deleted all traces of old Opera and installed the latest version. While it seems to be operating okay now, one major problem. Text typing is very slow! Like typing this sentence here would take almost a minute to fully appear! It does that in both text fields and in the Opera Notepad. It really murders the usefulness of the browser. I do not have this problem anywhere else in any other program. Safari works fine. It is only in Opera. And it only seems to have started last week sometime. I have no frickin clue what's up with that. Good luck on this one!
