Surely Opera 7 rockzzz
Yeah man,Opera rocks.And it's the best browser too....but the FF fans won't agree,I think.
Ya, there are a couple of guys who go ga..ga.. over firefox
Been there ... seen that ...
Interesting that Firefox is slower than Mozilla
Well i know opera is fastest but i dont use it coz i use rediff and OPERA doesn't display EMAIL id list on right side while composing mails. For me FIREFOX's the BESTEST.
i love opera
BTW let this thread terminate. we have already a lot of threads on OPERA v/s FIREFOX
Again opera-FF speed issue comes up... And ppl telling opera is good.
And a browser being fast wont be an issue any more to me
I too use Opera and love it.
But firefox is so popular and accepted by many because its Free of cost
and there are loads of extensions that add on to the beauty of Firefox.
Well i know OPERA is the fastest, browser on earth.
But it uses more system resource than FF, and thats why i am usin FF(got only 64MB RAM). Plus its adware program.
Even if i had 128 MB RAM would have been posting this frm Opera.
So all those who say opera uses less system resource, see the above post! I already proved mine with a screenshot also.
@grudge : what screen shot ???
anyways . on my ol p1 , opera ( older versions , had 3 and 5 ) , worked like a charm , were as FF never fired up at all . As usual opera let me browse 20+ windows in a p1 133 , with just 64 megs of edo/sdram . if ur looking for pure browsing without the fancy colors and graphics , opera is up for grabs any time .
On the new amd 2600 , 512 megs , i go up to a 50 windows at a time , then easily go offline , or save a session . Even if there is a crash in opera , it brings back the previously used windows , even if i am offline .
Opera is faster in , it uses easier shortcut keys , Mouse gestures and customisable toolbars , which makes it easier to open and browse . even with the mouse , u have the paste and go options , unlike FF where u have to alternate between the keyboard and mouse , u can browse all u want within opera with just the keyboard .
one wierd problem i have seen in FF is when even i open the download page , my mouse starts to stutter and slow down on that particular page . plus , the clean up in that page , didnt even ask me what to clean up and removed even half done files .
Well i did also like to add that Opera use lesser sys resource than IE fr sure.
After making those speed tweaks in FF it gives compable speeds to Opera
@babu: what tweaks ?? do share
hey am not able to open gmail in opera.. but its sayin active X req.. i dunno how to activate it.. can any 1 help
ActiveX is not something related to word Activate!!!
ActiveX is a set of technolgies developed by MS and it's used to create Interactive components in Webpage..it is also used to add plugins to WebBrowses which enables to view non HTML components like Excel, pdf and other...
Opera does not support ActiveX (and VBScript) components for security reasons, as ActiveX controls have full access to OS...
Firefox does not support activeX but still gmail runs like a dream on firefox.
Opera is not yet fully supported by Gmail themselves, it might work out on a few systems here and there. It works like a charm for me though.
Stop bickering dude...what does your memory stat prove..It has been clearly tested by the reviewer, and like it or not, opera is the fastest.
Gah ... not a single browser thread goes without an Opera vs Firefox fight ... why not make a sticky for that purpose ... and stop junking sensible threads.
Some interesting points from an article
1. Konqueror is slow when not running in KDE (because the KDE libs have to be first loaded up)
2. Mozilla is faster than Firefox! And I ran a test and can confirm this (strange, maybe coz mozilla uses GTK+1.2)
3. Opera runs fast on linux, but even faster on windows. Man, considering that I only use opera on linux, I hope they optimise it for linux too.
4. K-Meleon, though I thought it was the fastest windows browser, isn't too impressive.
It was disscussed on this forum, itself a few days ago. Hers the link:
