Opera Software After a long gestation period, Opera has released version 10 of their browser, which comes packed with a whole lot of improvements and new features. It's got a completely new interface, a turbo mode for those days of bandwith drought, automatic updates (finally!), and lots more.

I remembered now why I don't use Opera

I like the addons I have installed in FireFox, some of them are fun, some of them are useful, and none of them are available for Opera. That is bothersome but that's still not a showstopper. I could probably do without them if I had to.

But the fact that Opera insists on having its own shortcuts for everything and doesn't follow the platform standards annoys the hell out of me. I use ctrl+number on Windows and alt+number on Linux to switch to different tabs but neither of those combinations work on Opera. Every single other app I use works just fine, only Opera refuses to allow that. Cycling through the tabs isn't the same thing. When I press ctrl+number/alt+number I jump directly to the tab I want, no hassle and no need to cycle through them all. You may think I'm crazy, but that just is a no-go for me :/
