    from the browsers

    which is the most secure is it Opera or firefox?

    I think that opera is better in stability and security right?

    is opera the most secure browser to date and the fastest browser to browse?



    btw does opera have the same feature as firefox that if ur pc crashes and u start ur web u well ur browser saves the site u were in? does opera have that?

    Yeah, it pretty much would be Opera.... I don't use it that much, but I have to acknowledge that it is...

    German computer magazine rated Opera as most secure Browser.
    But does anyone has exact listing with all browsers? E.g. Seamonkey, K-Meleon a.s.o.

    1. Opera
    2. Firefox
    3. IE7
    4....Netscape9..

    Off By One browser is the fastest, safest, and probably the smallest. It needs pages to be absolutely standard though, since it doesn't do all those "dangerous" things.

    Long time ago Firefox was the most secure browser, now Opera is #1.
    Being the most secure browser is a matter of dates. One day Opera = Swiss Cheese full of patches.
    So keep on using Opera as long it lasts. :)

    Opera since version 3x has been among the securest of browsers, don't think its going to be swiss cheese yet. Even in its heydays, FF was never as secure as Opera.

    Yep, and Opera seems to have successfully avoided the bloat pitfall as well.....

    Indeed........even with all the features it has added on over time, its remains the fastest browser out there.

    Hello,
    It would be Lynx.
    Opera / Firefox - take your pick. Both will do equally well. It comes down to taste and preferences.

    Now you have me curious about Opera. I use FF with NoScript which can protect against XSS and AdBlockPlus. How does Opera handle what my 2 extensions can do?

    You don't need No Script with Opera and for ad block try http://www.fanboy.co.nz/adblock/

    Works quite well.

    lool, yes your keyboard layout needs the ü "für über alles":D :cool:

    Very impressive.

    But there remain one problem: If I store a webside in html it can´t be saved without creating a folder, only IE7 has the best feature of all: Save as MHTML. It is a real shame that no other browser seems to have this excellent ability, saving websides without mhtml results in folder overkill.

    Hello,
    Actually, those folders are how things are supposed to be.

    Why bother with MHTML, install free doPDF and print to PDF, far more compatible and easy to distribute as well as save.

    Because your way needs two or three actions and mhtml only needs one.

    As I see right now opera 9 offers the option to save as webarchive that is equivalent to mhtml, cool! Better then firefox.

    I use both Opera and FF, and I don't see a similar function in Opera. I know I can block JS on a site by site basis, but how would I easily enable or disable scripts when surfing to new sites, or allow just top level sites by default. OT, but if any ubuntites are having problems with flash in 9.24, try the 9.5 beta.

    Block them all by default and allow on a site by site basis.
