Re: Opera 9.5 gives Firefox 3 a run for its money

"I don't like the way that the ctrl+F (find) feature works (firefox's is so much better)"

I'm not a fan of the ctrl+F popup either, but there is an alternative: you can just press '/' followed by a pattern, and it will put a discrete box at the bottom of the screen, somewhat like firefox. The major difference being that it has no 'next' capability (it should work like 'n' in vim imo). However, if you then do ctrl+F, it will be prefilled with you last '/' search, so its more flexible than it seems. Opera has lots of useful keys like this, just check out their help files. (They turned it off by default now i believe, but the number row quick keys are amazing, e.g the 1 and 2 to go to left or right one tab.. etc)
