How would you compare the newest Opera to the latest offerings from other Browsers?   Chrome has been pretty consistent with their look and feel and managing to sneak in upgrades.  I see Firefox might be taking that approach with this latest release, and though I have it, it still feels slow/clunky.

I do not think I have used Opera since forever ago, so they are still better than IE?  That is good, but how are they against the other browsers?

I think Chrome is a dumbed down Opera knock-off but it looks good.

If a browser lets you disable all plug-ins and EASILY enable some or

all plug-ins for specific websites than I think it is pretty secure.

Opera is the only one I have seen that does this.  I have all four major

browsers on my system right now.  There maybe a add-on for Firefox that

accomplishes this but I am not sure.

I'm a big fan of Opera, but it's not a panacea for CSRF or whatever. You do have to turn off Javascript and plug-ins for those security benefits, and Firefox and Chrome give you similar functionality (using the add-on NoScript, in the case of Firefox).

I have never had to disable JavaScript only enable per site plug-ins.

Bitcoin client is running on my PC with a balance of 5 BTC.  Also all

my passwords are saved in the Opera Password Manager. If you can

get through Opera browser's security and take them be my guest.
