Default Re: Why everyone should use Opera

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.
