Which is why I won't be trying the beta.  (I use FF for the addons)

I'm starting to feel the same way.

Now I almost can't stand using Firefox on the Mac.  I use Opera then switch to the 'Fox and I'm like "HOW SLOW IS THIS???"

Opera has some quirks (so does Firefox) but it also has some nice features and it is no doubt quick.

karlito:
yea opera is far from perfect... some sites don't work and there are definitely quirks and annoyances... CTRL+F (find) pops up the stupid dialog (have to remember to use / "quick find") instead. ALT+D doesnt focus the address bar etc... but man the speed... it's pretty addicting :P

I can't stand using Opera after browsing with links2 and lynx.  Pages load so fast that it is practically instantaneous.  I go back to Opera and I'm like, "WHAT A SLOW PIECE OF CRAP!"

;)


With the speed comparisons I have seen, Opera will load a page (depending on CSS, tables, multiple images, etc) a half a second or less faster than Firefox.  With the FasterFox plugin, that is improved in some cases.  I'd take a significant speed hit if it means continuing to use great plugins such as FireGPG, Better Gmail, FEBE, etc.
