    I wish I helped make firefox when I was 17... I'll never get that year of my life back.

    I thought that was pretty impressive. I just downloaded firefox after reading that and am posting my first message with it.

    If Firefox could zoom everything like Opera does, versus Firefox's ability to only zoom text, I'd say Firefox hands down. But Opera is neat for that feature.

    Other than that I see no real big difference for me. I still use Firefox and like it better cause it has a larger viewing window.

    But they are capable of being incredibly biased. Not that I care, it's a damn internet browser dude, I have IE, Opera, and Firefox all on my PC. I use Firefox though.

    I remember we were having problems with a homework problem in our ECE class because of something with an old version of Java virtual machine. The professor suggested trying another web browser, and the nerds in the class actually started fighting over opera versus firefox. I honestly wanted to just stand up with a bazooka and send them all to hell because nobody should care that much about a web browser DAMMIT!

    Ok I feel better. Oh yeah I installed that mouse gestures extension for firefox, thx perspective.
