Okay, I have to admit I was a bit concerned when I downloaded <a href="http://www.computerworld.com/action/article.do?command=viewArticleBasic&articleId=9097819">version 9.5 of Opera</a>, which shipped June 13. At first glance, this lean, mean browsing machine seemed to be showing signs of middle-age spread. At 6.8 MB, the install file is about twice as fat as the approximately 3 MB I'm used to from Opera -- it is even larger than the 5.7 MB install of <a href="http://www.computerworld.com/action/inform.do?command=search&searchTerms=Mozilla+Firefox">Mozilla Firefox 2.0</a> (but not larger than Firefox 3 at 7.8 MB). I was afraid they'd slapped heavy saddlebags on the racehorse browser I'd grown to love.
