Opera Software The first Beta of Opera 9.5 has been released. "Opera 9.5 adds Full Text History Search allowing you to access find pages you forgot to bookmark by simply typing just a few words into your toolbar! Opera also gives you the ability to Create Search shortcuts from any search field on the Web; and to Synchronize your Bookmarks, Speed Dial with any other Mac or PC computer, your cell phone, or the Opera-powered Nintendo Wii Internet Channel through My Opera."

These reasons you list as features are actually the reason I don't bother. I already have an email, bit torrent, IRC and usenet client. I don't need or want a new one. Mine are set up the way I like it, work as I want them to and so I see little reason to bother with alternatives.

I don't care for "mouse gestures", widgets or notes.

For me, I just want a web browser which works the way I want it to. Firefox does this, minus it's escalating memory utilisation.

I see no reason to bother with Opera. About the only thing I find it useful for is coming up with ideas which other browsers copy.
