Have any of you run opera and top at the same time? I tried opera for
the umpteenth time a few months ago on a Linux system and found that
while it worked, the processor utilization was extremely high, much
higher than Firefox. I've also seen complaints about this on opera
user groups. So, for the umpteen+1th time, I gave up on it. I'd be
curious to know if any of you are seeing the same thing.
