Not long ago I switched from IE to Opera because I wanted Opera's backup options for my blog. Once I started using Opera I really liked its look and feel, particularly speed dial. However there were a few things I needed to do which Opera failed to do, and I had to revert to IE on occasion. BUT now I have changed to Chrome, which has the same look and feel as Opera AND does not have its shortcomings. Chrome also has other features I really like too.
This table documents my perceptions. Note- these are partly subjective. You may have different needs and preferences. Of course.

Song of the week. U2: "Magnificent." Just so.
Andrew, Brett M, Bronwyn, Christopher, me, Joel, Nadine, Neil, Sheona, Tim, Tony & Yelena braved the cold and ran at Parliament house last night. The highlight was probably the massive full moon rising, on the horizon. We improvised a few run-throughs on the grass oval, some 200m laps of the oval practicing tempo, and some laps of a longer hilly circuit ditto. It is only going to get colder; this was our first real taste of winter. At least the rain held off while we were out there.
Change of program
This Saturday's cross country event is not at Stromlo Forest Park, it has been moved to the (old) Deeks Forest Park location on Uriarra Road. Which means I will not be attending after all, as I had planned to have a shower at Stromlo immediately after the run and go straight to a meeting.
I will run BBQ Stakes tomorrow as planned. Even though it might just snow.
