I always wonder when I see such a remark, as I use Opera almost exclusively, and have never found a bug beyond the occasional page that doesn't display correctly because it isn't coded to current standards. I'd have to disagree with saying Opera has a lot of bugs, ask any regular Opera user, and they will say the opposite.

Agreed. I've used the last few incarnations of Opera, and hear a lot of things like that (on their own forums even...yet a lot of the "issues" they talk about there are about "....well, I have 100 tabs open and it is lagging my pc..." ....duh.) yet haven't experienced them at all. An occasional rendering issue, but that's the ONLY problem I have ever seen. I use Opera and love the speed, which is why I leaned away from FF. I also do not need the add-ons, which I know is one of the selling points of using FF.
I even put Opera Mini on my new phone yesterday just to check it out. Pretty slick. Although, anything is better than a phone's native browser,lol.

Back to the point. It's impossible to say which is better. It all depends on what you use it for, and what you like. It's the same way with all of the "best AV" questions.

It's user preference IMO. If it works for you, then use it. If not, give something else a test-drive.

I use Opera - I find Firefox really slow in comparison.

<<Opera has spell check, it will underline questionable spelling as you type. It will not suggest corrections (that I am aware of).>>

If you right-click the underlined word the spell-checker will offer suggestions.

- Which one is faster in loading pages? On my comp chrome way faster then Firefox,Opera and IE when it comes to loading pages.
- Do they have Spell Checker? Chrome, Firefox and Opera all have spell checkers.
- Which one has more customization abilities? Firefox is made for customization.
- Which one has the least bugs? All the big browsers these days don't have many bugs. But some webpages will work only work properly on IE and Firefox or sometimes just IE.
- Are both of them supported by Kaspersky 2010 Anti Virus? I dunno

I use Google Chrome.

Depends on which features are more important to you as well. I personally like FF because of the ability to add any kind of plugin and extension. I like the customization of FF. Chrome is faster on some sites, but I think it's on par with FF in speed. I haven't used Opera in a long while. It's pretty fast when I did use it, but I didn't like the layout. But that's just my personal taste. Nothing wrong with Opera on a technical level as far as my experience was.
Agreed.

As a Chrome User i would say so. I use a variety of Web-Browsers and i would say Chrome is best in my opinion.

To be brutally honest, it's really personal preference. Opera has less support for some pages then IE & FF. BUt then again FF is the more customisable browser of the 3.

How do I get Opera to install on my Windows 7 64 bit system. I tried to install it and it gave me a message that said it won't work on 64 bit systems - only 32 bit. Yet I've seen posts here and elsewhere where people say if works fine on 64 bit. What's the secret? Thanks.
