    Mozilla is a great browser, and has some little things that people ignore yet they are still great. Tabbed browsing (if you have a middle button/wheel) go into options and look for "middle-click opens in new tab") it takes a little getting used to but it's really nice, also you can change what the default search engine is (i think everybody who knows you can change it has it on google) I've been using Mozilla since the 1.0 beta, and I'm about to test the 1.4 alpha right now, it's crashed 3 times _ever_ and I only blame 1 crash on Mozilla.. something with a printing problem in the 1.2 alpha IIRC.

    Opera has all of that, too

    >>Mozilla is far more better than opera. First, It shows web-page as it is, while Opera can "forget something" ( I use v7.02). Second, Opera sucks when it komes to saving site to you hard-drive - it realy does something wierd.<<

    I've never tried saving a site to disk with Opera, so I'm not sure how true that is on all systems. I usually use a site mirroring program to do it and set it on a specific page. On leaving on things on webpages...no. Just no. It doesn't translate malformed code well like IE can, but for the most part it displays everything IE can. Unless you can provide a specific example...I know it's never done that to me, though.

    >>Add to this some special features of Mozilla and you have "best browser on earth".

    HUH? Add what to some special features?

    Special features? Get real. I save them to hard disk through Opera all the time, i dont see anything wrong, weird, or out of place, what are you talking about?
