    Opera is probably the most advanced and secure browser out these days.
    According to symatec firefox is less secure than internet explorer and with the release of some vital security patches this is starting to show through

    Opera has a more advanced tab system than firefox, when opening a new page in opera a new tab is opened but in firefox when the target is set to _blank a new window is opened.
    Opera's interface is alot more customizable than firefoxes. Toolbars can just be moved around and buttons can just be dragged and dropped. The downloading of news skins is also alot eaiser.
    Opera interface:

    Firefox interface:

    Opera is a less bloated browser despite what other less knolagable people try to say. It's download sizeis 1mb less than firefox's and it comes with more features. Firefoxes extension system often mimics some of operas 'out of the box' features but actually bloats up the browser while opera does it in a sleek way.

    Opera Is faster than firefox. It uses less memory when stasrted and whil running.

    Opera renders css better than firefox but neither browsers pass the acid test so the both have faults.
