    More people need to use Opera. Seriously now.

    I use it, but have to cloak as Firefox on most sites because of browser sniffing that wants to refer Opera to the mobile site.

    I suspect that there are a few who report as Firefox, but are actually Opera users... maybe like all 3 of us.

    Chrome seems to be very buggy of late.

    ^^ THIS
    Opera makes the rest look archaic in comparison (Yes, that includes Chrome).
    Firefox has all but disappeared from my radar, and Chrome just feels too restrictive and simple after you've used Opera.
    Been using it for a few months now and I'm just more and more impressed each day.

    +1. I've downloaded the latest version off the Chrome website. I can not see my URL's at the bottom.

    Dude, ignore the benchmarks etc. and just try it (trust me, it's fast and like in that typical "Chrome" way)
    Install a few add-ons etc. Play with some settings, you'll see...

    It even detects when your link speed sucks and optimizes it for you (probably using cache servers, I don't know). The Plugins install in a very slick way without needing browser reboots etc.
    On top of all that you get awesome customization with themes, Opera Unite, Opera Sync, a cool widget bar that can "hide" on the edge of the screen, a better menu layout than Chrome IMO, Notes built in, double clicking the little bar between the tab menus and bookmark bar gives you a "tile" style page layout preview, hovering tabs gives you fast and slick preview too etc.

    I use Opera. It is by far the best browser. It just works, and it is so user friendly and visually appealing with so many useful features that other browsers lack.
