Anybody ever check the Site Stats?

I check the stats every so often, and noticed something about the browsers we're using to surf the site.... I might have my own personal stats! Unless someone 'fesses up, I seem to be the only one using Opera! The only time I see an increase in the percentage for Opera users, is when I've been using it.
Maybe it's time to spread the word - Opera is the best browser. Beats the pants off Internet Exploiter and Netscrape

It's FAST. The security features are second to none, and it doesn't have all the security vulnerabilities that IE has (Opera programmers actually seem to know how to build a safe brower). You can take complete control of cookies, pop-up windows (even refuse them if you want). And did I mention it's fast? There's a freebie version (with a small banner ad), or you can pay for it (and it's worth it, IMHO). I tried the freebie, and decided it's good enough to fork over a few bucks.

Man if you see internet explorer 6 you will notice that u have control over the cookies. Apart from that, most sites today are made for internet explorer and there are a few for netscape browser. This means that opera has problems displaying some of these sites and this may lead to crashes.

Also the email client which comes with the opera browser $ucks!

Opera has problems only displaying a few web pages, Over all it does great, Unfortuantly its not the Browser for me. I dont feel like installing 2 browsers on my system since IE and Explorer are integrated now.
