1) it has a history of what were searched like in Firefox saves the last X # of search keyword in the Google bar.

2) Increase the view percentage in Opera increases both the font and the picture. It would be more convenient for a quick method to just increase the font alone (equiv to Firefox Control + )

Other than that I really like it, it's quick.

Actually it's because it doesn't try and be coy by calling it "view percentage" and calls it zoom. And it's an accurate and proper zoom instead. ;)
