Opera, the worlds fastest web browser, apparently. I have been using Opera for a while, and seen it go through many facelifts and changes, I admit I really like the latest incarnation. A combined browser and email client, that if you are unfortunate enough to crash while browsing, will take you back to what you were looking at. Microsoft should take note.
Opera is also a very compact, 3.4meg download, or about 12 meg with Java, you dont have to worry about spending a couple of hours downloading the latest version.
Other great features that the Opera Team have included are, mouse gestures, which allow you to go back and forth between pages quickly, bypassing the back button on the browser, ideal for all you news junkies, a resume function for downloads, which can be a great boon, there is nothing like loosing a download 95% through like on some other browsers. Another feature I like is the search engine link in the toolbar which saves a lot of waiting time.
Also the fact that all windows open up within the main client, makes Opera so much more user friendly. Opera is also the most translated browser available according to their official website.
A free version is available which comes with a small advertising window in the tool bar.
