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.

Careful all of you nay-sayers. Opera fans are just as venomous as Apple fans.

I used Opera 3.62 way back, but could just never get used to it on the desktop. Granted it has a lot going for it, and invented many features people love, but it's not open source, not very extensible, and their CEO never went swimming when everyone downloaded it to see him swim.

On the other hand, I have a crappy Win Mobile phone that Opera Mobile runs great on.

I really have no major gripes with Opera, but it won't be my default browser (nor will Chrome) as long as it doesn't offer what Firefox does for debugging websites. (Web Developer, ColorZilla, MeasureIt, FireBug, DOM Inspector, Server Spy, etc)
