Opera 9.5 gives Firefox 3 a run for its money

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 151.47.84.127] on June 21, 2008 06:29 AM
Opera has been my favorite browser for a couple of years now. After trying Firefox 3 one more time, I'm making the switch. It's not because I think FF is a better browser: Opera is sensibly faster, I like its GUI better, and has a few features (site preferences, to mention one) I like a lot and will miss.

Opera 9.50 is buggy on my Linux system, but this is not my main reason for switching. The reason is support. I've sent a few bug reports on the Opera forums, and the response from the developers was zero. And I don't like their community: my feeling is they are either fanboys or whiny kids who only complain about changes and bugs without constructive criticism.
If you read this forum you know what open source support is. I like it better.
