    hisyam: there is a “magic wand” in the toolbar. Click on it and it will fill in username/password and login for you.

    Opera is fast, but it takes more memory than Firefox, try to open the ‘Task Manager’ and you’ll know :)

    Firefox is good, but if you let it open and don’t use it a while, it’ll be very slow at the startup when you restore it back, wonder why.
