Opera 9.5 gives Firefox 3 a run for its money

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 74.196.167.148] on July 10, 2008 07:20 AM
One thing not mentioned yet is that Firefox uses a bunch of modals. I hates them. Go to Tools->Dowloads and you get a new window which takes up space on my crowded taskbar. Transfers in Opera is a tab or pops out of the left side.

The irc stuff for firefox is near worthless. After cursory searching it seemed like Chatzilla was the main one and it's FAQ told me it doesn't support resume on xdcc transfers. Pathetic. The only feature I find missing from Opera's irc is the ability to set a default download directory, but otherwise it's pretty good.
