Default Re: Firefox vs. Opera

The only thing I actually prefer Opera for instead of Firefox, is smoother browsing, and the ability to have the websites u were on saved, so when u start it again ur back where u left.

Default Re: Firefox vs. Opera

I prefer firefox, purely because Opera has some troubles loading webpages, and when it's set as the default browser it messes up your e-mail (if you use Outlook Express as you e-mail program). At least, in my experience. And it takes it's time when loading up https sites.

I also think Firefox loads pages faster (At least it seems to on a 1500kbps connection), the load up times are about the same though...

Yea I agree with Toby. But now my Firefox is messed up so I have to use Opera Its not horrible, but Firefox will always be my preferable client, over IE and Opera.

The full screen mode is quite neat because it only shows the webpage. No toolbars or anything other than the scroll bar. It does freeze more often than Firefox on my Vista computer though.
I see... but each banner would have to be blocked individually, correct?

Yes, it's faster browsing and loading... but the inconveniences I listed are somewhat of a bummer.

Opera is overall a somewhat better browser.. but i'm just too used to firefox to make a permanent switch. I think they are both great browsers.

Yeah. That's the bad part. And sometimes it will ban more than it has to.
