I love the pw manager, but Mooseman, the Download Manager is so much better then the stupid things like FF. You have 9.0 right?

I like both but I use firefox. Firefox is just what i've become accustomed to because it's easy to use and I like it. Opera is good and it's very powerful. I like the widgets too. Opera is good but I'm just used to firefox. I don't think one is really any better than the other because they're both stable and secure. I think it's just a matter of personal preference, Firefox is a little bit more simple while Opera seems to be a lot more advanced but it still easy to use. If you're in to customizing and things like that then I think Opera is better but I"m not into that so I stick to firefox. Bottom line is that anything is better than IE in my opinion.

I don't know... the many inconveniences of Opera make it less of an option for me than Firefox.

I think you can actually. Try clicking on the download, and dragging it to the top of the page, where it says "Opera ............ download". You know, on that bar? And it should be a new page. I mean whole new page, not just tab. I think that happens with webpages when you drag a tab there.

Ill test it next time I have something to download, but I got nuttin now.
