I had quite a bit of problems regarding Flash in Opera the last months and I eventually got fed up with it. So I (re-)tried other browsers, specifically Firefox and Chrome. I couldn't get some of the functionality that I got used to through Opera into Firefox via extensions, so I ended up with Chrome for now, which I am actually pretty happy with. Chrome is fast, has a minimalistic interface and has some great extensions. Among these the recently discussed "NotScripts"-extension, which apparently was discontinued on the Opera platform but not on Chrome. Other great extensions include "Go to IMDb" and "Speed Dial 2", the latter mimicing the Speed Dial in Opera, but better. The only things not so good about it in my opinion are the missing tab-groups functionality and the not comfortably toggleable bookmarks toolbar. But I can live with those issues for now.
Looks like Hackers in Estonia figured out a way to re-route a ton of internet services across the globe to route through their servers so they could profit from the ads generated. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/20/hundreds-of-thousands-may-lose-internet-in-july_n_1441260.html There's a link that can tell you if you are infected. It says the most (per country) were about 85,000 USA users. It also says that if you are infected and don't clean your computer before July when the FBI shuts down the server they set-up to continue traffic until everyone was clean then you will completely loose internet service. My connection came up 'green', ie: not infected. Interesting story nevertheless.
