Opera Software Since the launch of Opera 10.5 in March 2010, I've been using it as my primary browser, whether at work or at home. Using Ubuntu at work, and a Windows netbook at home, I wanted a fast browser for my netbook and a coherent browsing experience on both operating systems. And this is where Opera 10.5 (and newer) fits perfectly.

About your trackpad concerns - did you know that you can use Opera completely just from the keyboard? (The opposite is also largely true if you have a real mouse, except for entering text, apparently). I would know since on a computer many years ago, my non-optical mouse used to break sometimes (bad cable) and I learned to use only keyboard without any issues. I still sometimes find it faster, especially when I have to use a laptop, since I hate trackpads.

"changing the shortcuts"
Ahh, you struck my biggest PITA I have with Opera. So many times they introduced a great shortcut just to change it a few months later... But I have to admit mostly they're doing the change so that they use the same shortcuts as other browsers (from the top of my head alt-d, ctrl-b), which is a good thing. So I gave up and instead of customizing my keaybord shortcuts more and more I just learn the new ones.
