People just seem to love heaping addons on FF and Chrome. They like those browsers because of all the great addons. Don't know how many they actually need, but they sure like them. A Guy

I have Chrome, and haven't used any of the extensions once, I just prefer to have fast browser which supports all the webpages I want to visit and has a nice UI

Another Opera user here, it's not given me any reason to go to another browser, I've tried most of them, Opera is the best for me.

I tried Opera a couple of months ago and decided I should have switched to it a long time ago.

Public thanks to Bill (A Guy) for his kind tutelage and answering all my questions.

For me, NoScript and my modified version of Personal Menu are non-negotiable.

Tab Mix Plus is another add-on I love in FF.

I have Opera now too, but how do change the UI in the webpages, as for SevenForums the boxes in Chrome and Opera look completely different

Chrome on the left and Opera on the right; I know there is only a very slight difference, but just wondering why? Is it how the two browsers handle HTML?

The reply box in Chrome sticks out of the screen less then the reply box in Opera; I know it's me being really picky

There is a line outline on one and not the other Different browsers use different engines, and certainly render at least slightly different. A Guy

I've switched Opera as my default browser, I like the much lower memory usage in comparison to Chrome, and with TurboBoost enabled, my browser speed is about the same as Chrome too!
