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.

Opera fans are just as venomous as Apple fans.

But nothing compared to Firefox fans:

Several users complained that the Firefox community has a bad attitude.

"I encountered a surprising amount of hostility from the admins when I decided to post what I thought was a new issue as a new bug. The admins told me I was wasting their time and that I should search the bug database before posting. Anyway, this attitude seems fairly common among open-source folks. I think the problem is that although you can find all kinds of people who want to do the programming, nobody wants to do support or documentation on open source projects, particularly as they will not be paid for it. In my opinion, this will prevent open-source solutions from ever going fully mainstream," said user Jeff Rivett.

"Firefox is slow, slower than IE, way slower than Opera," said user Gord Braun. "Mostly though, it's the foaming-at-the-mouth FF fans who keep me turned off on the browser. Imo, Firefox is like Linux — more religion than reality."
