OSWeekly: Opera faster than IE/Firefox, author considers switching

Originally posted on Thursday, June 29, 2006

The Opera web browser has come a very long way over the years. Not only do they render webpages faster than Firefox and Internet Explorer, it seems that they are choosing to stick to the Web Standards world and take the same approach to webpages as Firefox.


...[For] those of us who use PCs everyday and have been doing so for many years, Opera does present some very unique options. And with that comes the real question: Will I consider dropping Firefox for Opera? In a short answer, perhaps. It is something that I am willing to explore.

While some (myself included) would point out that Firefox is actually taking the same approach to webpages as Opera has (for years before Firefox was even a glint in the pocket of those who are making big bucks off of it), the review touches on some good elements. It is fairly light reading (and spread out over 4 pages instead of what could be 1 not-too-long page) but anytime someone recognizes that Opera is not just another browser, it’s worth pointing out.
