Considering on how many other gazillion sites that one tries to connect to, I'm not surprised....

Believe me i like Opera a lot but its still not ready. Its adobe issue with flash but I also hate that it appears with multiples on my task bar instead of me using the tabs built into the browser. I like the sleekness but what made it a very fun browser has me lost. I am not willing to part because of its gestures for right and left clicking with forward and backwards on web-pages.
Jump-list and private is nice but I think ill roll back to 10.1 today
Multiples on your task bar? I don't have that. It's a single task with all the tabs. I don't know, guess I don't visit many sites with flash because I have no issues at all. Runs fast and works well here without issue.

Really? Thats rather odd unless your using basic. On my Aero it comes up with multiples even though its one browser just running. It is just like IE8.

I posted a picture with these 4 browsers. I might try a new install. Never got around to going back to 10.1 And I am testing Luna from Kari still not sure I will like it and its settings are overly complicated but I like that I can have both opera/ Firefox all mixed in.

The reason I mentioned the issue about flash is regular people probably venture more into flash based websites and such. I know my brother looks at all those heavy intense flash sites.

At least it doesn't crash like the beta though, I am happy for that.

I would rather not talk so much about why FF isn't as liked or my veins would burst with overflowing anger that will be felt for miles from my house.

I still like Opera despite its minor setbacks.

Yes. It isn't bad now but if i think about the headaches with Firefox, it sure doesn't bring cute cuddly kittens and ice cream in my memories.


I would switch to it but the right click and left clicking for forward and backward capabilities that Opera has, Firefox doesn't have in an add on yet. Still look day to day for it if I am not busy. Speed dial would be nice too.

I'm using Aero as well. Perhaps because my taskbar buttons are set to never combine, I don't know, but I only get one item down on my taskbar, as you see here.

Love this epic battle between browser users. Sorry, I've tried FF numerous times and I simply don't care for it. I would rather use IE over FF. I'll stick with Opera, thanks.

Ok Thanks about that Igster. I still cant look at your picture without thinking of Lost but that helps. It took awhile to get used to the Icons so I don't feel like switching that to as it feels more old to me.

Its how I feel but FF has adblock so its the only reason It works slightly better. I dont think of this as a battle though. I like to see what is good and bad for a browser because i might enjoy something different. Downthemall isnt so bad when I feel like spaming downloads of pictures for cars on websites at times. Links for Opera isn't exactly the Big cheese to mass downloading items.
