Opera 9.5 gives Firefox 3 a run for its money

Even with FireGestures, Firefox's mouse gesture abilities aren't equal to those of Opera. Open both. Find a photo gallery on the web. Go to the first image. It's a nice image so you want to go to the next one in the gallery. All Opera needs is a flick to the right, because it remembers all the image links on the previous page and will take you to the next image without having to go back to the main gallery and select the second image.

I only started using Opera with the 9.5 alpha builds (previously a Firefox user), but I've come to prefer Opera.
