Opera Software You all know that I don't particularly like Opera. I find the product to be lacking polish, over-complicated and without the marketing pizazz that has made Firefox a household name. That's just my personal opinion, and that opinion has garnered many complaints of unjustness. To that end, to present a fairer discussion I would like to put a simple question to the community: "What should Opera do?".

1. it does not feel as a complete product, its more like 100 small useless tools together
2. a horrible user interface
example: RSS-Feed handling is not very good, the way of the firefox is way better
3. not integrated in the desktop
4. i am using some important extensions like adblock plus, no-script,FoxyProxy and FireBug. there is nothing around that is nearly as intuitive

The mozilla browser faild since it was more than a browser and it is the same with opera.


So make it an browser and not 10 halfbacket tools.

that's right. mozilla was going nowhere until a few people split up to develop firefox with this idea: KISS and offer extensions for those who want more complexity

This is just nonsense. It has the most coherent and integrated UI.

example: RSS-Feed handling is not very good, the way of the firefox is way better

I disagree. Firefox's way of handling newsfeeds is terrible.

4. i am using some important extensions like adblock plus, no-script,FoxyProxy and FireBug. there is nothing around that is nearly as intuitive

Actually, there is.

LOL. You clearly have no idea what you are talking about.
