If you use a lot of tabs, only Opera is able to handle them. Firefox chokes ages before Opera even starts to flinch.

But opera is missing (or was missing) almost all of my extensions. What's more, where I can figure out how to customize the firefox UI and behavior to be the way I want it I never could make Opera comfortable. It really suffers from configuration-soup, and this is coming from a "More options == better" kind of guy.

Can I get emacs keybindings in opera? Preferably without manually setting each one. how about fasterfox-style page load timing? I presume it has a greasemonkey analog. How about noscript? Save-page-as-image? Save-selection-as-image? Can I put the nav buttons, address bar and menu bar all on one horizontal line? Can I get one-keystroke delicious bookmarking? Does it have firebug or equivalent? Javascript console? Does it have a batch-saver available that doesn't suck? I need to be able to mass-save files in open tabs (yes, for porn). Is there an intigrated EXIF viewer so I don't need to launch an external tool? Can I zoom images independently of the whole page?

I could go on and on. I use a lot of extensions.

How about things Firefox doesn't do. Can I get CPU or RAM usage per-tab? That would be a killer feature.
