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.

I own a netbook too with a touchscreen. It's gigabyte m912. Only with firefox i could tweak it to satisfy all my needs:
"grab and drag" - so i can scroll web pages by just dragging any part of the page.

"quickDrag" - open a link in new tab by just dragging a link aside.

"adblock" + "noscript" - enable only wanted scripts and objects and disable unwanted ads.

I have other addons but they are not unique.
Now show me how can I achieve this usability on your opera and i will uninstall firefox on all of my computers.

You can grab and drag in Opera. There's a modifier shortcut (Ctrl+Alt), or you can enable it permanently (and hold Ctrl+Alt to disable temporarily).

You can drag links to open them in a new tab in Opera.

NoScript is built into Opera, and there are many ways to block ads.

So all of those are already available in Opera, or possible to do.
