However people (or some of you) don't agree, actually they think that their favorite browser is the fastest one. Even they don't systematic benchmarking system and software, to support their statement. You can't deny the fact that Opera scores maximum in the ACID 3 test, one of the most popular browser benchmarking system (Industry Standard).
Opera is not only faster but highly optimized for the congested networks with it's Opera Turbo. I have only a GPRS connection, which hardly gives speed of 1kBps to 2 kBps, and Opera Turbo works fine for me.
