Because FF can do everything Opera can and then some.

Eltu i have Opera too but i like chrome more
Chrome starts faster then opera, chrome consumes less memory, And i love how you can drag tab and drop it where you want ;P

@ Aihwa:

Not really.

1. Mouse gestures
There are FF addons for this, but I find them to be stiff and not really good. Opera's mouse gestures works wonderfully.

2. Adress bar search (as mentioned in the first post of mine) - I have yet to see a FF addon that does this as brilliantly as Opera.

3. Speed. Opera is fast. FAST. In a way FF cannot match.

4. Interface. I find Opera's interface superior to any FF version, or other web browser for that matter.

Eltu, this is my argument:

Because I dont really care and it works, also I hate anything Microsoft.

I also hate anything microsoft - why do I think I use Linux?

And sure, FF works. But Opera is so much faster, more stable and contains really, really useful features.

Tymian:
Opera does start a bit slower, but it runs much faster. And the tab-dragging feature is present in Opera 10.6.

1. It can still do it

2. does it as default

3. speed is relative. Also depends on your connection. For me, "speed" is all the same.

4. Buttons, labeled, within reach. I'm not quite sure how you can revolutionize button pushing...

Aihwa:

1. Yeah. Internet Explorer can also browse internet, but that doesn't mean it does it good. Opera's mouse gestures are WAY better than Firefox's.

2. You misunderstand me. I am referring to the ability to add custom search engines. As I said in my first post, for example - if I want to search for "Neytiri" on youtube, I don't have to go yo YT first. I can simply type "y Neytiri" in my address bar, and it will do everything automatically. Same goes for any website I please.

3. Speed is in numbers. Opera is faster, non-dependent on connection.

4. It's not just about the buttons, interface is much more. You as an EVE player should know that.

As an EVE player, I can safely say that even with a terrible interface, you can do the same thing just as well.


Also, FF4 can now expand or shrink text boxes. This quick reply box is now the full size of my screen as I type this.

And as for searching, this can be set up on FF as well.

Opera has it by default, no need to set anything up.

FF can also edit its in browser searchbar to have a number of different search engines. Basic pack has google, yahoo, amazon, stuff like that. New ones can be added easily.

I just tried using Opera 10.6. Everything was taking twice as long to load. I'll stick with Mozilla Firefox. Sorry, Eltu

If its default that way, how easy is it to change the keyword/letter associated with that search engine?

FF has one drop down menu that does all that.
