Will be full of bugs and that anyway...


I don't honestly think so - there will be bugs of course, but not as much as your thinking.

What errors did you have, i havent seemed to have any..,(yet! :))

Well the one I mentioned above (tab glow effect), it crashed on me a few times, it wasn't compatible with half of my add-ons, none of my themes worked and it seemed a little bit slower - it just didn't have a smooth feel to it.

I know why the add-ons and themes didn't work - because it was an entire new version. But that's something no one can really help :)

FF can be quick and sweet though if you also use a language that is written from right to left it can be problematic. It has improved in this field but the IE7 handles it much better.
I guess Microsoft spend time trying to upgrade the FF. Not that it always works.

In the IE7 you can manage add-ones like the FF.

Yes but many people are not aware of it - Internet Explorer doesn't offer add-ons like Firefox.

Actually Microsoft are the creators of Internet Explorer. Mozilla are the creators of Firefox :)

Yes, you can mange addons but they are only meant for programs e.g Adobe and Active x type things, With Firefox there are thousands of plugins to enhance it.

I'll put in my 2 cents: I have been more and more impressed with Opera. It just has all these cool features, like integrated torrenting (for legal uses), a quick dial feature (awesome to the max!) and much more. Plus, they have a mini version for crap cell phones like mine. Opera also has a number of very nice user-created visual themes - even the standard theme looks awesome.

If you have never used it, try it for a day. If you it doesn't work out for you, uninstall it, no big deal. But I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed.

I was thinking of trying Opera - just need to get some spare time on my hands first :)

I can partially agree with you on that - the features would end up being suggested by users and still in the end get put into the final version.
