Opera 9.5 gives Firefox 3 a run for its money

When I used to use Windows, I was a Firefox fanboy. One of my friends told me to try Opera for a day. I was hooked. It was fast, adapted to my Windows themes, had a shitload of features, and just felt more ergonomic. When I made the switch to Linux, I just used Firefox because many of the major distros liked Firefox. I am using Firefox 3 right now, but I am planning on switching back to Opera. If Opera can find some way to inherit your icon theme _and_ your Gnome theme, I would switch immediately.

Many small distros and LiveCD distributions include Opera because of its low memory footprint and its multitude of features.
