    I love Opera. It is my default browser in Linux and in Windows.

    I used to like Firefox, but Firefox has gotten slow since version 9. As a result, I've switched to Opera as my default desktop browser. I like cross-platform browsers, rather than browsers that only work in specific OSes. Therefore, I do not like IE or Safari.

    Opera is very fast, especially compared to Firefox. I've also had no crashes and no slowdowns in Opera, even when I've had 20+ tabs open.

    I've been using Opera for years too.

    It is only in the past year that it became my default desktop browser. When I first tried desktop Opera, I thought the UI was ugly. Opera's UI for the desktop has drastically improved.

    I was a fan of Opera Mini when I used BlackBerry devices longer than I was a fan of desktop Opera.

    Opera Mini has recently upgraded for the BlackBerry and it is really fast, I used Bolt for a while, but Opera Mini wins hands down now. While I have had Opera on my desktop for ages it is not my default browser, but it has its uses and is good that it syncs with Opera Mini and with Opera on Linux.

    Opera is admittedly good. Nice too.
    But I'm sticking to Chrome and Chrome Beta on mobile.
    Nicer and quicker. Or I've got too used to it.

    With Chrome you're able to log in with your Google account and save bookmarks and settings across computers. Can you do something similar with Opera?

    I've been comparing the two since last night, and they are running about the same. Opera tends to hang up on a page with a lot of pics, but it's nothing to cause a fuss about. Going to keep it and use both.
