Mozilla & Gecko clones eWEEK Labs' tests show that Beta 1 of the open-source Firefox 2.0 includes some welcome new features, catches up a bit with capabilities found in other Web browsers and adds some nice security enhancements. However, while Firefox 2.0 is shaping up to be a good upgrade to Version 1.5 of the popular Web browser, it doesn't look like it will be the slam-dunk over the forthcoming Internet Explorer 7 that Firefox 1.5 has been to the current IE 6.x. For that matter, unless Firefox 2.0 and IE 7 improve greatly before their respective releases later in 2006, neither will come close to topping the quality of the already shipping Opera 9.

Its installed on my computer and attached to the internet, I need to trust it. I don't trust Opera. Or maybe your right I'll just put this sony cd in my computer.

Conspiracy everywhere. Why should you trust a company, which is giving the best browser on for free (satisfied with their business model - revenue from mobile telephony operators) ? They MUST hiding sth. right.

Opera satified you are joking! I'm sure Microsoft was happy with the 12 billion profit too when it pulled WGA. I'm also pretty sure that when they integrated IE into windows they did so out of love of mankind.

I find it absurd that you would suggest, it gives its browser away for free becuase it makes soo much money.

I suspect it plans on making money in much the way Firefox is doing so, through advertising. We have seen with firefox that even having a small propotion of the market is worth millions.

The answer is in the very my post, which you quoted.
