I've been using the beta's and RC's on windows and linux and the only thing that made me like opera over firefox is gone...

firefox isn't slow anymore! that's the only reason i stuck with opera through 8&9. it was quick easy to change visually and worked well.

opera is hands down my favourite browser and it gets installed on every computer i touch.

i've been waiting for the 9.5 release to migrate all my mail and setting from a windows install and go back to opera full time. It has everything i'll ever use on the web all integrated into the one window.

Firefox is now a very good browser and i think both are infinitely better than IE on windows. But now it's out i'll stick to opera with epiphany on the side.
