I've installed Opera 9.5. It's really nice and I'm actually writing this entry with it right now. But then because of unfortunate resume problems after a BIOS upgrade with my Acer notebook, I've installed and tried the new version in Windows as well.
And frankly, I was amazed. The websites loaded so quickly it seemed they were just there immediately. Awesome work, Opera. But then I started wondering:
Why is Opera so much faster under Windows?
