Opera 9.5 gives Firefox 3 a run for its money

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 91.140.47.254] on June 22, 2008 06:14 PM
Did someone mention Greasemonkey?
I am an opera user and when I wanted to try out a greasemonkey script I thought "crap, I have to run Firefox AND add another plugin..."
But then I found out that Opera supports user javascript, therefore most greasemonkey scripts will just work.
I've been using Opera for ages and I'm still impressed by the "Oh that new feature? Yeah, we had that built-in like, 2 versions ago" attitude.
And I still remember my reaction when I first decided to try firefox: "Why does it take so long to switch tabs?"-"Why do I press 2 keys where 1 would do?"-"Why do i have to wait ANY time to go back?"-"Why is it so sluggish with just 25 tabs open?"

Maybe I'll give Firefox 3 a shot, but I'm guessing I'll have more or less the same gripes...
