Opera: The Best Browser for the Eee PC
One of the biggest drawbacks of the Eee PC is its screen's low resolution. Its not much of a problem with its bundled applications but the low screen resolution becomes apparent during web surfing. Most modern websites are now optimized for high resolution screens and most of these doesn't look right with the Eee PC. For two days now, I had to be content with decreasing the font size in FireFox (and Flock) just to make some websites look "just right".
Just a few hours ago, I was able to download and install Opera on my Eee and its "fit to width" feature makes most of the websites look normal! Each time I encounter a website that doesn't look exactly right while using Opera, I just hit Ctrl-F11 and everything looks normal again!
Now, my everyday surfing browser is Opera, and my blogging browser remains to be Flock.
