Mozilla & Gecko clones According to research carried out by French firm Xiti Monitor, use of the Firefox browser continues to grow in Europe. Since April this year, the geeky alternative to Microsoft's Internet Explorer gained an extra four percent of the market across the continent. According to Xiti's research, the browser is now used by some 23.2 per cent of European PC web surfers - up from 19.4% in April.

Opera as usually underrated...

Who cares that Opera has better and faster CSS/HTML/XHTML/JS rendering engines [firefox still cannot pass ACID2] is faster, uses less memory and has a lot more functionality which is slowly added to firefox.

Is that orange fox so great to make You use firefox?

Or maybe this orange fox does blow job for using his browser so that is why everybody likes firefox so much ;)

There are two things to keep in mind:
- Firefox has a broad user support compared to Opera, so people build websites for IE and Firefox more than for Opera.
- Firefox is Open-Source, not Opera. (that gives Firefox an advantage for me and for others)

that is fault of noobish webmasters, not opera.

Firefox is Open-Source, not Opera. (that gives Firefox an advantage for me and for others)

Opera is free, I do not need to browse their source code to use it exclusivly.

The fact that You can compile FX does not mean that it is faster or better.

Exacly what advantage?
