Opera 8 Beta 2

Version - 8.0 Beta 2
Build - 987
Platform - Linux
System - i686, 2.6.10-gentoo-r6
Qt library - 3.0.5
Java - No Java Runtime Environment installed

Okay, Okay, The "Opera 8 beta" thing looks cool, is damm faster, scrolls better than firefox, starts quicker than FF, tab mgmt is alot better & its L&F gels better with my KDE theme... but stil cannot beat firefox on three "basic" issues!

1. Its not free! These text adds are bugging me!!!
2. It still dosnt supports Gmail's https/python duet, yahoo's "dynamic add-bcc" thing, blogger's non-html version. It dosnt comes with Flash pre-packed, FF bookmark importer... the list is endless!

3. I miss my FF plugins, specially the "auto-copy" plugin.

On a rating of 1-10 (float), i'll give it 6.50

WTF!
How do i get current image size of my image on a web-page in opera???
Why dosnt this preview button works???
grr...

& the saga continues...

Thank god!
The "Publish this" button worked... or i would have been doing all this again in FF :-D

6.50 `thing` can be a life saver when FF gets troublesome. Hence, its bound to stay on my FS :-)
