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.

Opera anyone?

I've been using Opera for as long as it been around it seemed. The first time I used Opera was in the late 90s. There are many features that I find lacking in other browsers that are ubiquitous in Opera many years in advance and only recently being implemented by those other browsers. It is unfortunate that Opera gets little recognition by the net citizens. Maybe it's marketing I don't know. Chrome is nice, new and shiny but not for me. I love Opera. Nuff said.

Up until recently, Opera's GUI and rendering has always just felt "wrong" to me. I wish I could explain it, but I really can't. It's much improved in 10.x.

I use Opera mobile for Symbian^1 which works well, and I occasionally use Opera on my mac because sometimes flash video players like ABC or thedailyshow.com work sporadically in Chrome but better in Opera for whatever reason. I use almost none of the extra functionality they have in the application.
