I have to admit, that is very cool and useful. One of the (very few) things I like about opera.
Yeah, that is nice. Firefox does that as well. I'll usually zoom a site to screen width since I'm using a 16:9 widescreen display. I just assumed all modern browsers did this. I'm pretty sure Internet Explorer does this as well, since I often use it at work. (Ctrl and + or -) I would imagine Chrome does too, but I haven't tried it, since I only use the mobile version.

Or do you mean each individual page on a site? I think Firefox just holds the setting for each site. (www.sevenforums.com is set to 120%)
The zoom applies just to each website not each page. My monitor is a 16:9 ratio as well & 100% is just to small to see easily. I find 110% zoom works well for 7 Forums, but on some others I need it bigger. I don't think IE11 has an individual website zoom function.

I'm still on IE 9 at work (though we've updated some of the workstations to 11), as well as the current FF (which I tend to prefer to use). But I am pretty sure even IE 9 has the Ctrl and + or - to zoom the different sites. We just got rid of saving many of the settings though (cookies, temp internet files, etc.), so it might no longer save the zoom setting. I'll have to check on Monday now. I'll let you guys know what I find out.

I have IE 11 installed at home still since some portions of Windows need to use IE to work properly and I figure having the most updated version poses less of a potential security risk. I don't give IE internet access from my home PCs though. So, not sure about the zoom settings and retention there.

Pale Moon is supposed to be based on the Firefox ESR version.
In any case, I run NoScript on Firefox (Linux) and Pale Moon (Windows).

On my PC, Firefox runs better in Linux than Windows.

Yeah, it's likely fine. I just didn't feel very reassured with an attitude of: "Well, if you don't trust it, don't use it." My take on most things is more along the lines of: "Don't trust anything, unless you have to, and then only what is most likely to be secure."

And on the other hand, if I wasn't able to get Firefox working properly again, I likely would have gone with Pale Moon.

Personally, I'd trust that guy more than the guy hawking his wares saying "Yeah, use our stuff, it's very secure."

Where is a good place to share cool tips?
I found a pretty good one and wondered if there was a place where we could all post stuff we find from other places? :D This one minimizes all windows except present window. Windows button AND Home button. Same combination again to bring windows back.
