Opera is as revolutionary to FF as FF is to IE, and all adjectives and expeletives used when FF confronts a rabid IE fan could be used against FF users as well: Don't want to even try Opera because "the UI is weird", etc, etc... Fine! We don't need you! Stick to your clumsy, open sourced browser and idiot download manager. We'll be surfing the web much easier than you ever will.
