Opera will work great on all websites.
in my opinion it's even more stable than IE7 & Firefox.

At the end of the day, it's up to web designers to make sure their sites work on all browsers, not the other way round. The browsers do need to be standards compliant, but it's no good if the website code isn't.

Yes, it does.
By the way, it is said that Opera used to be a payware. So why not try it since it is now free? :D
Besides, it is also said to be the fastest browser in the world.

My PC really likes Opera.
Very stable and very fast.
It's very simple but you can change GUI, add widgets and stuff. For those who want that.

Firefox is my favourite.
It's very strange that most of the people I know and comunicate with choose Firefox as their favourite web browser.

Don't want to see this turn into a browser war. :)

Firefox has some great plugins to help your security, but it and Thunderbird over the years have had some big security flaws. Seen first hand too.
Opera is a touch better, and there is also browsers like Maxathon too, that seems to have less flaws, even though it runs IE shell

Yes sometimes people don't use it :( and they have only one solution format c :)

BTW: try Opera it's fast and have a lot of usefull tools :(



I think if they have KIS, so it can remove malware. Why need to format C then?

I moved to Opera and I found I’m more comfortable using it. :)
It has smart interface and advantages Firefox don’t has.

One is that it has cookie setting built in you can block all cookies and allow manually.

This is true for any browser that begins to get a reasonable market share. IE has been and still is a dominant browser hence the plethora of vulnerabilities patched over the years. If it was the other way round with Firefox for example, I'm sure we'd see more flaws picked at by hackers etc. for that browser.

Indeed Opera has several built-in features, and is the strictest with standards, even if it has some strange ways, for example, of interpreting image form fields (returns an X and Y value in the POST header instead of the button value) so as a developer I have often to make fixes to allow my code to run fine with it.
I use it except for some sites that don't like it, then I use firefox.

Well, every browser has its own pros and cons :lol: . They have what the others don't, and they don't have what the others have. I use IE7, Firefox and Opera, but I only use IE7 if I have to. Most of the time, I use Firefox. I use IE7 for visiting Microsoft's websites which require ActiveX control (for validating Windows, etc.), and other websites which require ActiveX control too (such as online virus scanning). I use Opera for online transactions, because Opera is known as the most secure browser. For other purposes, I use Firefox, because Firefox and other browsers which use Gecko rendering engine works faster for my internet connection than any other browser (and I don't know why... :lol: ). Both Opera and Firefox are stable on my PC. However, Firefox is not really stable if I run it inside sandbox.

I have used Opera faithfully since 1999. Over the years the browser has gotten bigger, but it still is the most secure. It's total market share is still less than one percent and for my own selfish reasons, I like that. Sometimes there is greater safety in smaller numbers. Coupled with Proxomitron, I can go places in the Internet where no IE user would dare tread. :)
