Ladies and Gentlemen I would like to take this time to, while shamelessly plugging the superiority of Opera over FireFox, to introduce to you to the feature that keeps most people away from opera, Adblock.

To help everyone to make a jump to Opera, I have decided to compile a simple Adblock for Opera into a self-installing EXE program. For this to work you need to do the following;

Download Opera 9 http://snapshot.opera.com/windows/w90p1.html Opera 9 is currently in Technical Preview release, so it's not final and there is much new features to go, however it is 'stable'. Opera 9 currently has an array of new features, not least an Enhanced pop-up blocker to detect more unwanted pop-ups and changed keyboard shortcuts for closer cross-browser compatibility (CTRL+T is new tab isntead of CTRL+N etc)

Install it in the default directory on C: Not hard this step really. Install to C:\Program Files\Opera.

Download and run Adblock Installer http://www.filetrekker.com/Opera9Adblock.exe make sure opera is not running. Run installer, Hold that thought, complete.

Enjoy.

IF ads don't dissapear when using adblock Go to Tools > Preferences > Advanced Tab > Content > Style Options Button

Under "User Mode" make sure Page Style Sheet, Page Font colors and My Style sheet are checked and that My Fonts and colors and My Link Style are not. Set default mode to User Mode.

Now please, plaese go Opera :P

I use Firefox because it seemlessly updates itself and all its extensions, and because I use about 20 extensions which I could now not do without.

I also like the shortcut panel beneath the address bar.

I don't care about speed because my computer is fast enough to make it not noticeable and the W3C Guidelines are followed closely enough by Firefox for my liking: it's close enough to display 98% of all sites without bother.

Too much hassel for too little gain and alot of loss (for me, with my extension needs). I can see the advantages for every-day users though.

You can't. It's not the same adblock.

Then change it. Opera is designed to be completely interchangeable.

People throw opera away without doing 3 major things;

- playing with it to get it how you like it - skinning it - trying out all its features

I've got this going in Firefox and Opera. I like Adblock better in Opera though. Firefox and Opera are the best browsers in the world. I don't know which I like better though.
