    If it had some options to imitate Noscript, i wouldn't have a doubt: the best!
    There are other things, of course, but to me this is the main thing: Some extensions make FF comparable:D

    Since long ago, you can easily disable scripting in Opera in quick preferences, and in version 9, site by site, just like NoScript!
    On my system, for a heavy user like me (up to 200 tabs opened at the same time), Opera is much faster than FF, so I rarely use FF.
    Too bad I have not found an adequate version 9 release so far, but the latest ones are getting closer to solve my main problem since the first 9 Beta: CSRSS CPU usage often peaking to 70-80% while running Opera 9.
    In the meantime, keep using Opera 8.54...

    Interesting, but unless i'm missing something, you can't block scripts as default, and accept them per siteo_O (right clicking an icon or something to accept temp, session, or perm. allow a site). That's Noscript.

    i think you are missing something :D

    well, i disable scripting globally and enable it by a site-by-site basis by right-click and selecting "Edit Site Perferences" then allowing what can run on that site, you can do it with cookies, scripting, popups, plugins etc

    ok

    most of the programmes i use have a small user-base. the fewer users there are, the fewer people there will be trying to find exploits, so i've decided not to tell anyone how great the software i use is anymore :D

    Overall, Opera is getting better and better. Antifraud looks ok to me too.

    I really love the right click- left click to go back, and left-right to go fwd. It starts where i left it, i can save sessions, if i close accidentally a tab, i look in the trash :)D ), it's light years away! (exaggerated a bit...:D )

    Just right click anywhere and you'll see "edit site preferences" near the bottom of the list.
