You have Adblock although it's not as automatic as the Firefox one.

You have something called "notes" where you can do inline search and it's (realtime) synced with Opera Link.

Don't know what customize google is.

Also: alot of greasemonkey script works with Opera UserJS and there are also some OperaJS-only stuff that does various things people miss in Firefox.

That being said: Firefox 3 is very impressive and although it is much slower. (Chaing tabs, loading pages... browser performance is much more than javascript-speed.) And FF3 is of course very customizable once you get it with a lot of plugins.
