Opera vs. Firefox (Google Images)

Hi there my school has internet and they use Firefox and I saw that Google images looks much better than on opera. You dont have to load next pages and you see more at a time, but I am an opera fan so please is there anyway we can make opera's Google like that?

Google Images look the same in all of the browsers I use. Maybe you have Opera Turbo enabled; this compresses images shown in web pages. Try switching that off.

I think what you describe seeing on the school's computer is something new with Google images. I only saw it after a new install of 7. Try clearing your browser's cookies and cache and see if the layout for google images changes.

Google is browser sniffing , its detecting Opera & showing the old version for no valid reason.
Just right click the page & select edit preferences then network & change the browser identification to mask as Firefox & it then works fine with Opera. :)
