I dont know. but i have seen opera monitors what you are viewing. means if some image is loading, you scroll down to another image. top one stops and bottom starts loading.

Come on man, Opera infact takes longer to load than others. But the best part of it is that surfing with Opera is the fastest.

opera 9 i feel is faster comparatively as am using both.. but 1 thing i noticed that firefox takes less time to re open pages which are opened before..

ya and its true that working with opera is faster say for ex.. they now introduced a new option with "paste" as "paste and go".. it really helps as u need not req to press enter while searching or opening url using a copy paste..

If not the manufacturers then ask the experts and I hope this the right place to ask the question.

Opera has some Net tweaks in place. Like 'http pipelining', loads text from the page
first, loads Image in the background. You can do the same tweaks for FireFox.
Type 'about:config' in the address bar & change the Net connection settings.
FireFox will load faster now!!

True!
I usually add following lines in prefs.js file to increase the FF speed:

Code:
user_pref("browser.turbo.enabled", true);
user_pref("config.trim_on_minimize", false);
user_pref("network.http.pipelining", true);
user_pref("network.http.proxy.pipelining", true);
user_pref("nglayout.initialpaint.delay", 0);

One definite reason I know of is Opera's javascript loading speed.
This has been proved in innumerable tests
See here : http://celtickane.com/projects/jsspeed.php
Well, the conclusion is quite clear: Opera beat the **** out of everything else. It's more than 3.5 times faster than all of the other competing browsers.

Another reason is Opera's caching ability, Opera really makes use of cache(downloaded data), so there is huge speed advantage when visiting a site second time. (make sure you increase the cache from preferences.

Opera caches all your pages, scripts, flash files, pictures etc. so the next time your visit all it has to do is load from its cached file. it occupies about 20Mb to do this.
increasing this size will allow the browser to cache more.

I see right through you.
In my experience, Opera hasn't loaded so quickly. It loads up faster than Firefox, but if you want speed, try dillo or epiphany, or even links.

Opera uses an algorithm which downloads and renders the html (text) part of the web page first and then downloads the images. Moreover, the images and javascript files are stored in cache for faster browsing. This gives Opera an edge over other browsers.

Opera is a far more technical browser. One of the reasons why opera is faster than firefox is that in firefox, you install 3rd party apps, which are not hardcoded in the original code. Whereas in Opera, most of the features are built in, which means they are part of the main code, so no inconsistencies.
