    I am running XP with all current updates. Do I install the java, or non-java version of Opera?

    Also, is this better than Mozilla?

    If you have a browser that already uses java (NOT javascript like IE does) then use the non-java version. Otherwise use the java one. I'd suggest using the java one just to be sure.

    No. Opera comes in two versions. The free one has ads. Mozilla has no ads and it's still free, and offers all the functions Opera does. Unlike Opera, you can pick and chose what functions you want and leave the dead weight behind.

    Java can be easily togged 'on/off' in Opera. There's a right click, I think, to 'quick access settings' or something like that, and you can clear the tickbox for java usage. If you DL and install the java-enabled version, then you still have a choice to quickly dis/re-enable it.
