Opera Software "With Opera recently releasing their web browser completely free of Ads, it is a good time to let the truth be told. Not only is Opera faster then Firefox in all performance areas, it is much more secure and more compliant."

Try using Webwasher - http://www.cyberguard.com/products/webwasher/webwasher_products/cla... - with Opera to block ads and other undesired content. It works perfectly with Opera (and FF as well). It allows you to set up filters, block images/plugins/applets and so on.

I've used Opera for ages (can't remember which version - 3? 4?) and have periodically tried Firefox but have always gone back to Opera quickly. I don't have to faff around with myriad extensions that provide functionality that Opera has built-in and Opera has always been faster for me (dual 1.8Ghz HT Xeons).

There's a problem with that and what you're saying though.

You're saying that Opera has the functionality built in, I mentioned two plugins which Opera doesn't have the functionality of and you pointed out a 3rd party product.

That third party product is not built into Opera, and it's a Windows application which means it doesn't help Mac Opera users or Linux Opera users.

FireFox plugins generally work with FireFox on any platform.
