Horseshit.  Opera is a load of crap.  The devs at Opera care
less about their end-users than MS if that's possible.
Version 8.50 crashed more times than not and 9.0 has serious
bugs in rendering, DNS queries and user customization.

Panels and Widgets don't make a decent browser unless
you do nothing but adjust your menus and sidebars all day.

All this, in addition to the fact that their devs decided to
make any right mouse click either open a url in a new tab
or instantly move the cursor to page center. That's the 
most stupid coding error imaginable and it has been like that 
for at least 4 version upgrades..  If the right mouse button is
clicked on any part of the current page the cursor
automagically moves to the center. Now move the cursor
again to a clear spot and right click again. Back to the
page center.  How assinine.  

Please explain to me the logic of that. Who would possibly
tolerate having to move the mouse to the right or left to
an area that has no link, again and again and again.
