This Opera crashing intrigues me, I've seen other people complaining about it, and I'd like to know why is this happening. In the almost two years I've been using Opera, it never crashed on me. Nor Firefox did (except on my old computer), only IE7 :D
Opera is as good as saving webpages as IE. The problem is that it defaults to save only the HTML page, without pictures. In the dropdown box for "Type", there are options to save in pure HTML, HTML with pictures *and* MHT. The ideal would be to save everything in PDF anyway, it's more portable.
Secunia the commercial truth? O-K, if you don't care about the vulnerabilities present in software, we could go back to IE6. Besides, if you want security, what are you doing using the preinstalled browsers in a internet cafe? Use a customized version of Portable Firefox so you can keep your personal information to yourself (well, if the computer has a keylogger installed...). Unless you don't have a pendrive, or the internet cafe does not allow "installing" (decompressing a file in a new folder in the desktop, really, no registry entries involved) new programs.
The 90% of the users want a browser, nothing more nothing less. Any improvement a particular browser may have it's ignored, they simply want something that works. For now this is what Internet Explorer provides, and those who did some more research, went for Firefox. In a Mac it's Safari, and in Linux is Firefox. Opera is for the elite ;D. At the end of the day, what matters to a person is to have a mean to an end, all the security considerations, extensions, mouse gestures, keyboard shortcuts and all that only matter to advanced users.
