Opera x Firefox
Sometimes I want to use Firefox but I always get back to Opera. So I created this thread to discuss that. Why use Opera? (please, don't come here to say "Opera sucks") Why use Firefox?
- Detail-level configurability built into the browser - particularly FF's bookmarks manager and its toolbar/button flexibility.
- Single-process design, even with extensions, for those situations when processor loading is an issue.
- The need to trust only one design team for a full-function browser instead of a browser team plus a host of different extension designers (ref: #1).
- The easy ability to block updating from within the browser; my computer is mine, and software updating is something I choose to do on my terms at my times, when/if I elect to update.
That all said, I'm increasingly drawn toward Vivaldi (though it has a long way to go) as Firefox is being increasingly 'dumbed down' in its configurability. Olde Opera was the unsurpassed king in all these areas, but New Opera unfortunately isn't.
Opera has advanteges too:
1.Bookmark manager is better, easy to use,
2.Themes work in a better way,
3.Tab preview is awesome.
4.Opera is lighter than Firefox
These are some examples.
I have been testing Firefox in the last few days and I really enjoyed it. But I don't know if it will worth the change.
Can some mod close this thread please, thank you.
When I install a new Linux distro, I use Firefox. I use it to go download Opera. That is all.
