So you love Opera for the same reason you hate Firefox? Interesting...

Opera is still the best browser IMO.  I stopped using firefox when I found it got ridiculously slow when loading about 10 tabs and would stop with intensive stuff about...2 years ago now?  I've been an opera fan ever since and use it on both my Win7 partition and my hackintosh parition with Lion on it.  It's snappy, blazingly fast at loading webpages, and their turbo boost for slow connections is wonderful when I'm using all my bandwidth here at home.  Sure it may drop a few things here and there, but it's worth it to simply get my pages loaded.  I've only ever encountered one website where opera wasn't completely compatible and it was an IE site only >.>.  And from what I've heard, they've been pretty minimalistic since it wasn't cool(see: Google Chrome and correct me if I'm wrong).  I honestly don't think Opera gets enough of the lime light with IE(I don't even know what version anymore) or Firefox with its ridiculous release schedule and its vast database of addons being almost completely useless with each new iteration.

Now the only problem I have with the support behind the browser is its poor database of extensions that usually don't even work properly, other than that its a fantastic browser and I'll never switch to another one.
