      Neither Opera, extremely customizable without having to install foreign code (read: extensions), secure (Firefox has outstanding security issues and is rather slow to fix them) and most of all: fast and lean, Firefox uses a tonne of memory ...

      I used to use Firefox, it was easy to give up, I'm now an Opera fan ...

      Firefox rocks simply becaise of the number of add ons you can get for it.

      i too like opera, the auto page reloading is a godsend, not sure if opera can restore session like firefox can, if it can i'll certainly give it a go.

      opera seems nice however its not as fast as firefox, and alot of the banking and CC card sites i use won't work on it

      shame really.

      the fastest browser i ever used was the one from neoplanet!

      Re: Mozilla Firefox vs Internet Explorer

      I've been using Firefox for about a year now and have noticed its getting a bit slower and slower, but the only thing stopping me going for Opera is I like the add-ons I have for Firefox and I can't see Opera equivalents:
      NoScript
      Downloadhelper
      AdBlock
      Foxmark Bookmarks

      Re: Mozilla Firefox vs Internet Explorer

      that's true

      I am using opera now and i admit i do like it - the speed dial is good FF was okay but it looked weird having the top toolbar filled with bookmarks, this speeddial looks abit nice to be honest

      opera has BT and download manager and e-mail built in, again this is good.

      i'll use FF for the sites opera won't work with - atleast (thankgod) i don't have to touch IE!

      Like Firefox (well, anything that isn't made by Microsofbots) trying Opera -- seems okay but have yet to find the Home Page button.

      Re: Mozilla Firefox vs Internet Explorer

      My personal preference is Firefox, as I can have a nice NUFC theme on it.

      However, there is an article in PCPro a while back that tested IE, Firefox and Opera, and it was shown that Opera was the best of the three using various testing criteria.

      I can't get away with it though, and will stay with Firefox.

      My 2p worth.

      Re: Mozilla Firefox vs Internet Explorer

      Currently use IE7 and its great simply because its Microsoft :P.

      Safari on Vista over here is great, Its weird not having a Status Bar.
