Three things:
-You can get mouse gestures for FireFox
-An RSS built into FF would be good but you can download them.
-There is a free ad free version of Opera now any way.

Might think about switching sometime soon.

BTW, yeah Opera is a web browser.

Whatever...I've gotten used to Firefox anyways. Everyone has their own preferences for web browsers. Some like Internet Explorer, some like Firefox, some like Opera, some like Netscape, but the point is that it doesn't matter, just as long as it provides you with what you need.

Opera doesn't support opacity through CSS. There CSS compatibility is really weird, firefox just owns it.

Eh, although with my semi slow high speed, and it being the fastest internet browser, I think ill just stick to this.

Btw, I have no idea if it said that, but I read it somewhere. That it in fact the fastest one. And then IE, and FF is the slowest, but most secure.

Isn't Opera demanding on system resources? I'll stick with Firefox for now. It has pretty much anything you want, plus with the extensions, you can add any feature that wasn't available before.

Browsers are browsers, and they all do different things to get to the same place. Just pick one and let it be, lol.

I would use Opera if it could display the same amount of websites as IE and FF.

From when I did use it though, yeah, it is faster. Don't know about more secure.

I use it to see what my sites look like. Opera can be the smallest of my problems, or the worst of my problems.
