I find Opera to be far and away the fastest browser on the Mac. But its stability left a lot to be desired. Inexplicable crashes were an hourly occurrance. Under Windows it is only slightly more stable. Maybe your experiences vary?

Opera is notably the fatest browser on all platforms I have tested it under- Windows, Mac and Linux.

I must admit that I have experienced some minor stability issues on non-Windows platforms- I have noted that Opera is most stable on Windows. For me it crashes roughly once per day (heavy browsing). However, an Opera crash is not a problem at all- it auto saves your browsing session and re-opens all your pages you had opened before the crash occured.

I wouldn't say FF (or any other browser) is better in this respect.
