Windows 7: Best of Both Worlds? Or Is there a superior browser out there?

Best of Both Worlds? Or Is there a superior browser out there?

Opera is a convenient browser for me.

Even though there are issues with websites that I go on (photobucket is horrible, pictures won't load, and some sites take forever to load) that I wouldn't have with browsers like Firefox or Chrome, Opera itself is, as I believe, pretty okay. More importantly the note-taking application within the browser is so handy.

However, I am weary of its flaws and non-compatibilities with certain websites. Is there an application or ANYTHING I can do to have a browser that has similar features as Opera (especially the note-taking plugin)but is as versitile as Firefox or a superior browser?

I've been using my Photobucket Pro account with Opera everyday for almost 1 1/2 years and I have never once had a problem loading pictures and I have never been to a website that Opera 'took forever to load'. I'm not saying that you do not have a problem, but rather that those problems are completely unknown on any of my computers all of which use the Opera browser.

I actually use 4 just me being strange more than anything.

1. Opera as main choice (i have however found that my AOL emails don't display all the time)
2. Firefox as i love it but it doesn't have the speed dial option Opera has (if this is possible please tell me how )
3. Chrome but only as i like Google he he
4. IE i use this once in a blue moon and test my sites on there.

If Opera would get it plugin act together I might just switch from Fire Fox. But for now Fire Fox is my choice.

I moved to Chrome from Opera some months, ago as It better supported a system management console I use, (Spiceworks).

if you need a note app for your browser there are add-ins available for chrome or this method using Google notes

It may give you what you want

would it be possible to see all your settings? because if you have zero issues with photobucket and I do, maybe it's a setting you have...or a specific plugin

disasterpiece91- I doubt that posting all 19 screenshots of the settings I use in Opera will solve your problem in that you are the first person I have heard of that has this problem with uploading photos to Photobucket and as far as I know the vast majority of Opera users don't share this same problem with you with whatever settings they are using. Have you made this problem you are having known on the Opera Forums?

Uploading? Woops, should have made myself more clear

I meant when on google and when I look at images and there happens to be a picture from photobucket. When I try to access that pic, it doesn't load and it's blank. But yeah I'll probably go to the Opera forums.
