I like Opera...
I know I'm probably about 1 in a 1000 - literally, but it's quick, and fast, handles tabbed browsing easily, and works with most things I want it to. Occasionally it have to load FF, (which brings my computer to a halt for about 30 seconds as it lumbers into life), but generally Opera does the business. Even for Youtube and (yikes) Facebook.
Heck, I even *paid* for it back in the day...
but I hope Opera doesn't forget I use it more for ease of use than speed. Safari is nice and all, but I miss so much when I use it.
Nothing like being in the Browserati
Browserati? No, standards
Nice One, Lars/Norway

Assembly code is a low-level language representation of machine (aka native) code.
The comment "The native code will look a lot like assembly code" makes about as much a sense as the comment from amanfromMars.
phew. and here i was thinking i was starting to understand amanfromMars's postings.
Could we get him to write the next version of the European Constitution? Everyone would be too frightened to say "I dont understand it" to vote against it.
Is this really all that important a feature?
There's rarely any need for it.
So a faster rendition? Not interested.
A web-secure scripting language? That I might have interest in.
THEY'VE AWAKENED THE CARAKAN!!
That is all.
Faster is a Good Thing
Opera has the same core engine for all operating systems and this includes the very popular Opera Mini and Opera for Windows Mobile. It may not matter all that much on our multi-core many-gig desktops, but it can matter on the mobiles.
Brief history lesson
So, to put it in a nutshell...
Opera plans to speed up their scripting engine by restructuring their memory management system for variables and objects and by employing Just-In-Time compilation. Sounds like it'd be a blast for desktop application but may be more problematic for memory-limited applications like Mini and Mobile (JIT and the "register" system seem to indicate an increased memory footprint as the tradeoff for increased speed). I wish them luck.
