Ive never even heard of Opera(And actually I haven't heard of much considering the only browsers I know of are Firefox, IE, and Netscape.) Is it any good, worth downloading?

I'd probably just stick with Firefox, as it seems to be more user-friendly and plain better.

The basic version is always free. What they are giving away is the registration code that allows you to use the ad-free version of the browser. Excellent deal for me since I have had Opera for going on 4 years to test out webpages, but never used it as my primary browser. With the free registration code it will probably be seeing more time in action.

Opera is probably the single best "out of the box" browser out there. Faster than Mozilla and IE, with the all saftey benefits of a non-integrated browser. It also renders more "IE style" pages than Mozilla. Where it falls behind Mozilla is the open source support (extension/themes) isn't there because of the proprietary source code.

If i get the Registration code now and hang on to it, will I be able to use it later if I ever decide to give Opera a shot?

For now, I just downloaded it and put it on the shelf, where it will likely gather dust. But you never know what happens to Firefox once it has become more popular, so I grabbed the opportunity to register my copy of Opera, simply because if I need it a year from now, I'll have it. ;-)

I used it a little bit at work this summer and I guess it's because it was different, but it seemed really clumsy and slow to me. :-? It was running on an older machine, but the connection was super-fast and Firefox and IE worked great. I know that's not much of a review, but I'd definitely go back to IE if something ever happened to Firefox before I switched to Opera.
