The OPERA browser

I have just seen someone using the OPERA browser - it looks quite good and seems to have a friendly GUI.

Can I get this for UNIX(Solaris 8 is my OS)??? Does anyone have this installed on their UNIX workstation?? How is it performing??

All comments and advice is welcome!!

I use Opera under FreeBSD 4.5 (installed from the port under /usr/port/www/linux-opera) and it works pretty good. I much prefer Opera to Netscape/Mozilla.

Take a gander at http://www.opera.com/download/get.pl?id=123 for a download for Opera/SPARC (Opera/x86 is not available yet).

Installing Opera 8 on FreeBSD

I'm a n00b to UNIX, but I'm making much progress. My preferred browser is Opera, and the ported version with FBSD 5.4 is Opera 7.54.
