    Its also on ThinkDigit's front page, however the article is shockingly poor.

    Opera Source has nothing to do with features or extensions. API is what you need.

    oh yeah!!!!! upgrade time xD :D

    Edit: uhh :( The Final build with Opera Unite isn't out yet. :( I'll still be using the Beta 3 because it has Opera Unit. :(

    This article on the front page is a joke. :| no offence to the writer.

    First try Opera Unite and then say. Opera Turbo = superficial? :lol: People on limited connection will know it's value. :/ Extensions? Does Opera really need extensions?

    first that trailer sucks. They tried to make a trailer similar to what MS did for MS Office 2010.

    second, we do need extensions and plugins. that is why I am using firefox.

    third, they need to open up and let others join the party of developing extensions for them. sitting in a closed room will not work if you want to bring others in.

    I do agree that opera is fast but being only fast is not at all enough and that is the main reason why it has mediocre market share.

    The reason why they are doing well in mobile market is there is no real competitor right now and once FF mini comes out, they will lose marketshare in mobile market too.

    It doesn't matter whether they allow to put notes on a fridge or allow access of songs. priority is "internet browsing" and in that FF is miles ahead.

    hmm what are the extensions which an average guy uses in Firefox?

    I use the following extensions in Firefox - Adblock Plus, Chatzilla for IRC and Stylish.

    Opera can do everything what the above extensions can do for Firefox without any 'extensions'.

    it's not just using two or three extensions.

    You have the choice to choose among hundreds of extensions. check here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox

    I too stayed away from FF as I dind't have enough RAM earlier to run it as it is a heavy browser. now that I have a 4Gb RAM, I quickly jumped on.

    flashgot
    videodownloadhelper
    gmail notifier
    cooliris
    foxytunes
    fire.fm
    stumbleupon
    WOT (this is very very useful for me)
    foxytunes

    weather notifiers
    score tickers
    RSS feed readers
    adblockers
    calendars

    and there are many that I have not yet explorer.

    And If I don't one that matches my requirement, I can go ahead and write an add-on as per my requirement.

    ^ you actually missed out Ubiquity - http://labs.mozilla.com/ubiquity/

    But then it again depends on the taste. I was actually using Firefox since it was Preview Release 0.8, before switching to Opera a few months ago. If Opera opens up extensions development, it wouldn't be a bad move and I will welcome it.

    But calling the likes of Safari and Chrome better than Opera - like in that article is a joke tbh.

    I guess many know about this, 100/100 on Acid3 for Opera.

    ^^that I agree, If not Firefox, my immediate choice would be Opera and then Chrome.

    I used Safari only for few days, only to see it's cache eating up 6-7Gb of space for that idiotic coverflow.

    Chrome is just a browser. that's it. It doesn't even have the feature set that Opera has.
