Opera Software After a long gestation period, Opera has released version 10 of their browser, which comes packed with a whole lot of improvements and new features. It's got a completely new interface, a turbo mode for those days of bandwith drought, automatic updates (finally!), and lots more.

Opera, the web browser that lacks the stability and features of Firefox, the speed of Safari, and the compatibility of Internet Explorer.

Sorry, Opera. I still don't trust Turbo buttons.

I'm really not sure what you're talking about, and don't think you know, either. You do realize that most features in modern web browsers were pioneered by Opera, right? And that Opera was (arguably) the first browser with full Acid 3 compliance?

I think he may be refering to the fact that a few websites still do some black magic to determine what mark up to present and fail to understand Opera.

Check out Kentucky fried chickens website www.kfc.com in opera 10. You get redirected to the mobile version of their site. (which oddly enough has nutrition info different than their regular site.)

Stability and features? Firefox has a track record on stability equal to Tom Cruise - especially once you add plugins which you pretty much HAVE TO to even make the damned thing useful...

90%+ of what people add for plugins to FF either already being built in or available as widgets.

Do some research and maybe try using a product before you open your mouth.

What are those exactly? Or is that just another pointless stab at FF without any merit?
