I use opera under windows at work, and I find it vastly superior to both IE
and netscape. It renders fast, and when it does crash it's just the
application - both IE and netscape take down my whole system when they die
(the netscape in a very strange way, but this isn't the place to discuss it)
I havn't tried the linux version of opera yet - I only just noticed they have

I use netscape under linux at home. It doesn't crash much (no crashes at all
since I wiped it and installed mandrake 7.1/Helix) but thats probably because
I don't use it much - I stay back at work after hours and do all my personal
browsing then on a high speed connection.
I downloaded Mozilla M17 yesterday and plan to have a look at it tonight - the
last time I tried it was M14 and I found it to be very slow and bloated, both
under windows and netscape.
