Internet & Networking Now this is a subject sure to cause some discussion among all of you. LifeHacker's Adam Pash is arguing that Chrome has overtaken Firefox as the browser of choice for what he calls 'power users'; polls among LifeHacker's readership indeed seem to confirm just that. He also gives a number of reasons as to why this is the case.

I use opera because i love the page resize feature of opera, and opera turbo when i am using 3g/2g connections.

Been using opera since version 3, when it didn't had any tabs to manage multiple windows.

Never felt the need to switch to any other browser.

I would likely be using Opera, if they had never started trying to litigate themselves a userbase in Europe. That Farce pretty much poisoned my interest in anything they have on offer.

What on earth are you talking about?

Opera didn't "litigate" or sue anyone. All that happened was that Microsoft's illegal business practices were reported to the authorities, and then Mozilla, Google, and a number of companies joined the complaint.

No one ever sued Microsoft.

So... Are you boycotting Google and Mozilla because they supported and joined the antitrust complaint?

What about Google's antitrust complaint against Microsoft a while ago? Are you boycotting Google over that?

Or are you boycotting Microsoft over their antitrust complaint against Google?

Basically, are you just mindlessly bashing Opera, or are you actually honest and informed?

Opera is the only software I ever payed for. (not counting Vista that came with the machine I have now). I liked Opera and payed to get rid of the banner ads. A month later they removed the banner... Than I fell in love with FLOSS and Firefox came into my life, ADD-ONS!

A few month ago I gave Chromium a chance and I have stayed.

What will I use tomorrow? Hopefully the best software for my needs!
