Benchmarks The first webpage was served off a NeXTcube at CERN, Switzerland, developed by Tim Berners-Lee. He also wrote the first web browser, confusingly named WorldWideWeb - the world of web browsers has come a long way since then, more or less turning into a platform of their own. This puts increasing pressure on web browsers to be really really good pieces of software, and as such, ZDnet has a 7-page comparison of the world's major web browsers, comparing Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, and Safari.

Tab Mix Plus will let you change pretty much everything you want about tab behavior, although the FF3-supporting version is still in beta. If you want to try it, you can get it from here:
http://tmp.garyr.net/dev-builds/

You can display all bookmarks with Bookmarks menu -> Organize Bookmarks. It is improved from FF2, but I think it still needs a little more work.

And you can get gestures with FireGestures:

Still doesn't fix the back-button-reloads thing, though.

Another possibility for viewing all your bookmarks which might be even nicer for an Opera user is to hunt down and create a shortcut to your "bookmarks.html" file in your user profile (under Windows XP with hidden files turned on under C:\Documents and Settins\_your_user_name\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\_some_random_letters&numbers\, under Mac OS X under /_your_user_name/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/_some_random_letters&numbers/). Then you can view your bookmarks as a nice HTML list of links (albeit without being able to edit them).
