    Opera might actually be better but i guess i am stuck using the familiar browser. One thing i like about the fox is when i click something... i feel like i actually clicked and something is happening. Opera shows no sign of clicking/or less sign and just goes.

    think both are good but with opera you can do additional tweaking without installing addons

    any form of customizations, tweaks, what ever u want to call are all modules, snippets of codes that perform task, same as a addon, plugin... get the concept... so what if something don't don't do it by default, it doesn't mean it can't. Options, freedom, main aims of open-source technology vs that of proprietary

    I think being independent in not have to depend on a 3rd party module in order 2 perform basic task iz better.......

    no one, nothing is fully independent, we all/ everything depends on a "third-party", whether u want to believe it or not.

    I ain't gonna disagree that third-party apps can create security holes, of course they can, but can also help to patch and enhance the whole experience of browsing...

    e.g. AddBlock Plus

    Yu've proven my point Bro. It only needed AddBlock Plus 2 prevent Popups. Had it being built with this feature it would have been safer just az iz.... IE, Opera, Maxthon and Avant independenty block thoze on webpagez and yu have the option of allowin theze popups if yu desire.

    u fail to see the point, so i am done arguing... nutcracker doesn't crack stones.. choice, that's what open-source offers... what i don't like , i want to know i have the option of changing it, but u wouldn't understand, cause u have grown in a culture that's teaches u to accept things as is, clear sign of mediocrity. Anyways i have made my 2pence and u made urs, i may not like ur squabbling,but it's a free world, ur choice and i have mine.
