Mozilla & Gecko clones With the recent surge in WebKit adoption, many have stated to question the usefulness of Mozilla's Gecko browsing engine, claiming that WebKit is far superior. Some even go as far as saying that Firefox should ditch Gecko in favour of WebKit. Ars Technica's Ryan Paul explains why that is utter, utter bogus. "From a technical perspective, Gecko is now very solid and no longer lags behind WebKit. A testament to the rate at which Gecko has been improving is its newfound viability in the mobile space, where it was practically considered a nonstarter not too long ago. Mozilla clearly has the resources, developer expertise, and community support to take Gecko anywhere that WebKit can go."

"Opera crashed more on me then Firefox has.
You're using it on Linux I guess. "

You guessed wrong.

It's strange then, as for me Opera is more stable than Firefox2 was (otherwise I wouldn't have switched!) and I didn't use extensions (except FlashBlocker if memory serves)..

Anyway, currently Opera is very stable for me, that's why I'm taking my time before switching to Chrome (opensource is a plus).
