to see what you were talking about. Why do you need to refresh the page? On this site, after reading a message, I use the Z shortcut to go back to the previous message list, which is held in the cache, and it sits in the same position on the page as it was before. I only refresh the page if I want to see the new messages, in which case I want to return to the top of the page.
People have different ways of working, but it doesn't seem like a sufficient reason to stay with Opera 6.05. Opera 7.20 still has some problems on this website especially, but it is getting better with each new beta.
I find IE6.0 painfully slow when I have to use it. So much so that I browse MSN group messages in Opera, and use IE only when I find one I want to respond to. I use it because it allows more control over the formatting of my posts.
