I recently loaded Opera and it is so fast compared to IE7, not to mention I can actualy hear sounds played on websites now.

I still use IE7 for testing websites I design, etc.

Does SB know which browser I am using and when? Does it work effectively?

I loaded Opera after SB. I set Opera as the default browser.

I am using SB 1.06.03 and the atest Opera, IE7 and Windows XP Pro.
