i downloaded Opera, as my friend has it and i like it a lot more than Internet Explorer.

i installed it fine, and set my base webpages.

i clicked on one of them (google) and it gave me this message:

Error!

Could not connect to remote server

You tried to access the address http://www.google.com/, which is currently unavailable. Please make sure that the Web address (URL) is correctly spelled and punctuated, then try reloading the page.

Make sure your Internet connection is active and check whether other applications that rely on the same connection are working.

Check that the setup of any Internet security software is correct and does not interfere with ordinary Web browsing.

If you are behind a firewall on a Local Area Network and think this may be causing problems, talk to your systems administrator.

Try pressing the F12 key on your keyboard and disabling proxy servers, unless you know that you are required to use a proxy to connect to the Internet. Reload the page.


i tried all of those things, and i still get the same message.

any help?

(don't tell me to get Firefox. it gives me the same message with Firefox.)

Somewhere, something not connected properly. Check your modem, router, and restart your computer.

Telling someone to use a different browser isn't solving their problem and is just generally lame.

That isn't a problem with the browser, for whatever reason your browser can't get a connecting out. More than likely you have a firewall that is blocking it. Do other browsers work when you get that error?

Just because I couldn't solve his problem, doesn't mean I can't contribute to the thread. I've used Opera and I thing Firefox is far better. How is there anything wrong with letting him know that? I first heard of Firefox in a thread similar to this...

I am a mac lover, and even I know that safari is the worst designed browser available.
Opera is open source.

to TS, if you're running windows, the program may not have permission to access the interwebs. Go to your antivirus/control panel and fix it.

I use Firefox and Safari, and Safari is definitely better than Opera.

It's simple, fast and looks good. I even use the safari skin on Firefox

...and theres no way you can say it's worse than IE

Opera's not bad, but it didn't impress me at all. I have to admit it's the one I've used least out of them all. I tried it for a week to see what it was like, and I'd still pick Safari over it. There was no reason I wanted to continue using it. I'd definitely pick Firefox over all 3 though...

In IE do you have any sort of proxy settings that you haven't typed in to Opera? I'm assuming that IE still works so there is nothing wrong with your internet connection?
