I've been running Opera - not for long enough to know whether or not it will 
help - but in fact, I love it. It's a great browser. The only complaint I 
have is that as a web developer, it sometimes does some strange things, and I 
have to verify that things look right using netscape. But then I have to do 
that with IE - go to another computer (ie a windoze machine) and check how 
things look there anyway, so it's not a big deal at all.
