facts vs fans

It's a shame the voting is closed.

Opera is 52% smaller than Firefox, loads twice as fast and uses 45% less memory.

Anyone who has bothered to find out for themselves, and I don't mean just playing around with it for a week, but using Opera for as long as it takes to discover its power, its features and its advantages, will know the experience - one feels crippled using any other browser!

Unfortunately a large part of the worlds population won't try things out properly for themselves and are content to find out what everyone else is doing, and just follow the herd.
Then, when you ask them why they are doing it that way, they justify it by saying that's what everyone else is doing ! (Therefore it must be right).

Don't get me wrong, Firefox is a fine browser as are a lot of others, but don't just follow the hype and be content. Do yourselves a favour and spend some good length of time living with other browsers. Put them through the wringer. Drive them hard. Uncover their hidden features. Then I am sure you will agree with the facts, and not just be carried along by the hype.

Note that this poll was driven by opinion, I voted for Firefox since I was using it at the time, and still like it more than any other browser.

I thought all these polls were driven by opinion? I've tried Opera on Windows, but not on Linux yet, it's OK.

Speaking of hype, how come a large percentage of the Opera users I meet on the internet (Also my brother) are Shameless promoters of there web browser? At least all the firefox people mostly put it in one sentence, or one little banner.

Sound more like your trying to sell us on opera. I don't like opera. I never did in m$ either . I don't care about opera. I don't hate Ff but I prefer seamonkey and konq . wow so it might open a split sec. faster . But changing pages etc are just the same. but plugins work better in seamonkey than ff etc .

There's quite a few people who shamelessly prostelyze on the net. Linux users are probably the most frequently encountered, or maybe macfans now. It is quite common, though, to tell people when you think there's a better tool for the job.

There is also the point that there may be billions of opera users you meet but don't know about, because they're not telling you to use it...

I have used Opera for years. I have purchased 2 versions, one for Linux and one for Windows. That's before it was free. I use Firefox now. Opera won't work with Mplayer and other players. In that respect it's pain. Firefox interfaces with all the audio and video players. Opera was made for Windows, not for Linux. When they get it so it will see mplayerplugin I might come back, I do have $45 invested.
