    Here is a review of the latest version:

    "The benchmark I ran is fairly old, but seemed to produce reliable and repeatable results. On my system, Opera 9.5 Beta 2 was definitely the new speed champion, finishing the tests in 0.44 seconds. Opera 9 got a score of 0.86 seconds, with Firefox 2 coming in at 1.3 and the latest Firefox 3 Beta 5 coming in at a respectable 0.82 seconds.

    In essence, Firefox 3 has caught up with where Opera 9 was in terms of JavaScript rendering speeds, but Opera 9.5 is, in some cases, up to twice as fast! "

    As an additional feature, it also has automatic reload, so if there is a thread that you wish to follow closely, just set the reload time to 10-20 seconds and you get the latest post in almost real time!
