Opera 9.5 gives Firefox 3 a run for its money

Personally, I don't like Opera because its widgets don't integrate with the browser on the same level as do Firefox extensions. Also:
*Opera is proprietary
*Without a functional extensions analog, it looks like the Opera devs assume that what they like, I like (a la Mac/Apple)
*Sure Opera matched Fx feature for feature, but did they match NoScript? It's not like anyone can make a widget for that, since widgets don't integrate that well...
*Why go to the trouble of installing Opera and then deciding I don't like it (I did this) when Fx is installed by default on Ubuntu?
