    I don't know about stupid, but I remember the ads did annoy me.

    well when you're done being a crybaby, come join the 21st century because Opera no longer has ads -- and has not had them for many years.

    (that said, I purchased licenses legally to disable the ads when it did have them, and would continue to do so even had the company not decided to remove them)

    I can't get used to opera. FF just seems right to me, though I've used it since the day it was first released. The massive amount of extensions have allowed me to customize a profile that has everything I need and nothing more or less.

    I respect ones right to use what they like and enjoy, so I'm happy opera works well for you.

    Firefox takes 5 seconds to load a link that Opera does in 1 second. True story.

    you can make opera render even faster in the preferences. It's set to re-draw in 1 sec. You can change that to "immediately" and if you have a decent broadband connection, it makes things even more snappy.

    If he's using two browsers, same website, same machine, then it's not the connection... Opera is loading the page more efficiently than Firefox. This has been a well-known fact for years that opera is very efficient at loading pages.

    thus far, I haven't found a page that it doesn't render (except for ones with activex or other "defeating" technologies that cannot work outside of a single browser).

    Opera renders shit 4 seconds faster than Firefox. Lol.

    edit: and use the fasterfox extension in Firefox to make things as snappy as they're supposed to get. Firefox has so many config options to tune this shit, and some depend on connection speed and stuff, Fasterfox auto configures them fairly intelligently.

    your youngness, lack of experience, and n00bness to reality are readily apparant in your postings.

    I love firefox...

    "It's barebones, just like a browser should be! If I need extra functionality, I can just load a plugin! Now excuse me while I load 154,000 plugins to make it actually work...."

    Ive used both. Used to swear by opera. We started using firefox at work so I gave that a shot and its nice and I like the fact that I can always view pages unlike opera in which I would have to open a new browser for certain sites to look right or even load.

    I have ten plugins loaded. And someone else might have totally different plugins loaded. So we're not stuck with the same featureset if we don't want them.
