    This was my favorite browser on Windows, but it's terrible on Mac. Some issues the Opera forums refuse to resolve for me (copy/pasted):

    1. Is anyone else experiencing problems loading the new Facebook interface, which they've made standard? It'll load for me, but it's slow to load and it eats up all my resources.

    2. I have tried opening two different links from two different e-mail newsletters, which open fine in the Safari browser, and they show up as broken links in Opera. Same thing happens when manually going to the site. The sites are kentnewsnet.com and allmusic.com.

    3. I've installed Flash three times and Opera 9.6 still won't recognize it, forcing me to use another browser.

    Yeah I always liked opera but always preferred FF over it anyways. Plus Opera is old as balls too lol. Have you tried reinstalling Opera it self?

    I don't own a Mac (but am getting my first one next week), however I've been a faithful user of Opera for Windows during the last two years. I haven't upgraded my Windows machine to 9.6 yet (am still using 9.52) but I have noticed considerable issues with the 'new Facebook'. It lags terribly, Facebook chat never seems to work; it's a mess. I normally end up switching to another browser to use Facebook.

    As far as the other two issues you pointed out, I should be able to report on those sometime next week as Opera will be one of the first things I install on my new Mac.
    Faithful user of OS X since 15 October 2008!

    Why would you use Opera, use FireFox or Safari.

    Press any key to continue, or any other key to cancel.

    There are people Like me for one, who have used Opera for years and years. I like Opera and have it installed on every system I own, Mac and PC. Some people just like it like others like Firefox or Safari or even IE. Yes there are IE lovers also.

    Whatever issues the new Facebook interface has caused will be addressed I am sure. Do remember there are a lot of sites that crash Safari or just won't work properly with it also. Even Firefox has issues on an occasional site that is designed only to work properly on IE.

    I agree with dravis7: the problem might be with Facebook not Opera. Sometimes sites are just set up with one particular type of browser in mind. Give it some time and see what happens. Also just read that Opera just hired a top designed so Opera might just be taking on a new, better look.

    On the OP's 3rd point. I use Opera on many sites that use Flash like You Tube. It works perfectly here for me. Mac OSX 10.5.5 and Opera 9.6.
