Opera Software Since the launch of Opera 10.5 in March 2010, I've been using it as my primary browser, whether at work or at home. Using Ubuntu at work, and a Windows netbook at home, I wanted a fast browser for my netbook and a coherent browsing experience on both operating systems. And this is where Opera 10.5 (and newer) fits perfectly.

Interresting, how you say have privacy problems with Chrome (or Chromium) which is Open Source and people can look at the code. But you would use Opera instead because of that. Where no one can take a look at the code, other then Opera.

Wouldn't a more efficient method of ensuring privacy be to inspect the packets leaving your computer? In that case, it wouldn't really matter if you were using a closed-source or open-source browser.

The sad reality is that the vast majority of computer users have no clue as to what individual programs are (or are not) sending and/or receiving on their computers.

Chrome isn't open-source.
It has closed-source parts.

Only Chromium project (which doesn't contain Google's personalization + stealing data engine ;) ) is open-source.
