Sounds good, but if it doesnt have Firefox's addons and "noscript", and a few other goodies, then as the saying goes... or just my saying... "IDUNWANIT!!!"

I've been using Opera as my default browser for years now for years now. Its blistering fast and I have always loved the mouse gestures feature (one of my favorites)! Tabs, voice control, e-mail, whats not to like? Widgets, Unite, why anyone is using IE is beyond me!
Fraud protection!
All you Firefox users do yourself a favor check out Opera!

I'm a little curious, but I am very attached to Adblock Plus, NoScript, and IETab, which I use in Firefox. My wireless setup means that I probably wouldn't notice any speed difference, but still it wouldn't hurt to try something new. I'll be curious to hear your impressions.

Then you DUNHAVTOO

I became fed up with using FF on a daily basis and ended up switching to Opera 10.10 and then 10.50 beta>final.

I do miss Noscript though. But that's the beauty of browsers, you can have more than one installed...

Opera is virtually a hidden option. Its a great option though.

I don't keep up with FF add ons, so I'm nt certain exactly what the ones that you refer to mean, but IETab sound similar to a button that I add to Opera to open IE at whatever page that I'm viewing in Opera. Instead of just a tab, IE itself opens. I have a similar button for FF. Adblock Plus sounds something like Opera's ability to block websites listed in a custom urlfilter.ini.

You can also set individual site preferences to have pages display in the fashion that you want. I can't make a detailed list of differences between the browsers, but I believe that anything FF can do, Opera can do, except in a different fashion. I can say the same thing for FF, because there are a lot of things that FF can't do, that Opera does.
