8) My question is ,Why does Opera load faster than other Browzers.like Firefox or IE?
i don't see any loading difference between opera and firefox.opera is more professional but some sites doesn't open with it.so i prefer firefox.
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..
dunno y its fast but opera's cache is the best..... + its low on ram....
It seems fast cause it loads text first maybe, like firefox does. Now even IE7 is fsat too.
Can ny 1 also tell Why does BMW runs faster than other cars ?
Ans:-Ask tis question to manufacturers of BMW
If not the manufacturers then ask the experts and I hope this the right place to ask the question.
great reply !!!!
Ahh! Firefox loads and searches pages much faster than opera on my box!
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!!
I usually add following lines in prefs.js file to increase the FF speed:
This has been proved in innumerable tests

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.
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.
I m using FF2
I typed about:config
But cud nt find prefs.js
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.
Moreover, Opera is written in a very low level language. This makes it quite fast.
