Only those trying to start a street fight would ask such a question in this forum! lol!
Of course Opera is better. ;) Netscape/Mozilla/Firefox, is dog slow bloated full land fill code written by goats and clueless college drop outs on a 7 day weekend bender ;-) (duckin-n-running!...incoming!) ;)
Try both and you can decide for yourself. But please note, that Opera requires atleast 10 days of usage to actually learn how to get the most out of it. Ya, it is a bit advanced for most people (especially mozilla/firefox users...(still ducking). lol! j/k <- just kidding.
Seriously, Firefox is just to limited in option scope and requires a bazillion module/whatever/etal addons to do anything really kewl...
I wonder what the real market share of Opera actually is? I've always gone by web server log studies for guidance, which would obviously be innaccurate for Opera.
Like Brett said, because Opera shines in its savvy user interface, it does take a while to uncover its full power. But oh, when you do! For me, the integrated RSS reader alone is sweet enough, but that's just one feature out of scores.
It has too fake its agent name for compatability, because some sites are clueless about agent detection. It still leaves Opera in the agent name, but that is just like the other ie addons like Alexa...
what kind of rendering does it use
Opera is using its own rendering engine. I've seen it refered to as "Presto", but most people just talk about the Opera browser.
One of the strengths of Opera is that they are using the same rendering engine on all their products ranging from the desktop browsers down to the mobile phone browsers and the recently launched Opera Mini browser.
One of my favorite features is the personal bar. I keep an icon for the sites I most often visit there and a folder for each of the projects I'm working on.
