---- Mozilla vs Opera
moonbiter - 5:04 pm on Oct 21, 2002 (gmt 0)I do a lot of my work behind a corporate firewall. Opera cannot store my proxy username and password [opera.com]. The result: for each new server that I am contacting, I have to type in my username and password. This makes it hell to go to any page that has, for example, ads on it, where I have to type this stuff in over and over again. For example, when I visit CNET [cnet.com], I have to type in this combination 12 times when using Opera!
I use Mozilla because:
I had to pay for Opera, and I got Mozilla for free. This is important, since I run 5 machines, one of which is a Mac and one a Linux box.
Opera doesn't fully support the DOM (yet)
I like Mozilla's web development tools (script debugger, DOM inspecter).One caveat: I have the benfit of working on pretty fast systems with maxxed out RAM, so I don't have the performance problems that others have reported with Mozilla. Nor is Opera significantly faster on any of my systems.
Another caveat: My attachment to Mozilla also has a weird, non-logical emotional factor ... I just like the Mozilla organization, and the goals it espouses.
That said, as a developer I did buy a some copies of Opera, and I have great hopes for Opera 7 and its promised DOM implementation. I hope they don't charge too much for the upgrade.
