    Anyone here use Opera?? I got bored today and decided to give it a try. The only thing I can see that it has over firefox is "saving sessions" But I guess if I really wanted to I could do that with firefox as well. Save a couple of websites in a folder and just open them all in a new tab every time I open up Firefox. Just wanted to see who all prefers Firefox over Opera or vise vursa.

    opera is far superior to IE, but it still isn't 100% standards compliant.

    there's a bunch of hacks to trick it... because it sucks on its own.

    Results 1 - 10 of about 2,030,000 for opera hack. (0.14 seconds)

    when there's 2 million web pages on how to fix you, chances are you suck.

    hehe. Now somone do an IE search for hacks. I realize that every thing has its flaws. I was gonna do some research on both browsers to see how well each one conforms to standards. After messing around with opera for a bit I still prefer Firefox alot more plugins and i know they are speedy about patches.


    Edit:

    Just did the google search for IE hacks.

    results 1 - 10 of about 2,850,000 for IE Hacks (0.36 seconds)

    the problem is, most of the firefox "hacks" are for mods/plugins/ and such, not programming ahcks

    What browser do you use E? Or do you still use FF but are taking the other side for the sake of discussion?

    I see your point about it becoming more and more popular but the Mozilla Foundation seems to actually care about patching things in a timly manor unlike M$ who seems to wait untill 10,000 people have complained about it. Then they think about patching.
