I installed Opera in 1997 I believe it was, one of the first versions.
It was free and was being promoted on some newsletter I was receiving then.
I didn't know very much about computers, o.k. I know, I still don't *S*
I was using Netscape also. I had Windows 95, 120 MHZ Pentium PC.
O.K. stop laughing, it was top of the line when I bought it.
Operat went fine for a couple of days and then I had nothing. I crashed.
Opera was in it's first stages I believe, but perhaps not.
I was in the store of computers and the owner told me that I should never download new programmes that haven't really been tested. He had never heard of Opera at that time.
My son fixed my computer for me.
Anyway, I have been afraid to download Opera since.
Perhaps it is incompatible with Windows 95. I know it was in it's early stages when I downloaded it, and not too be compared with Opera of today, but it seems people are still having problems.
My two cents worth. I'll stick with Netscape, I started NS with version 2.0 <grin>
