Yikes. Three hours on Opera and I'm moving to Firefox. Opera is fast but has some issues. Scrolling on some pages is very choppy. Too rough around the edges for me.

Yeah, pretty much what I remember about Opera. Really though, there is no reason to expect browsers to get any better than they are now. There is no way to make money on them; where is Opera's revenue stream?

I use both IE and Firefox.

I like the interface for Firefox, but I don't like the way pages look, and i find it loads slower than IE(when first opening it)

Microsoft seems to disagree. They spend hundreds of millions on their browser development.

Yeah, and then they give it away. How large was the cheque you wrote to buy your copy of Opera?

Just because they don't charge for it doesn't mean that they can't make money off it or that it doesn't have the potential to make money.

Google makes tons of money from gmail but I didn't pay for that either. Opera's default home page and many of the default bookmarks were to their websites where they advertise.

Microsoft wouldn't spend that much money if it didn't think it was a portal to making money.

IE made money for MS by locking customers into Windows, not by being profitable in and of itself. There were several tricks they used; the non-standard, works on Windows only extensions to Java was the biggest one. That caused many people to switch. Does anyone besides me remember Netscape going bankrupt?

As for making money with advertising....

Notice the dearth of development on IE now that some of MS tactics have been ruled illegal. It is no longer the money maker for MS that it once was.

Yes I see that too.

Soon all we will need is just one browser app, no Windows OS, etc.

With broadband and bandwith ever increasing, we will be able to use every form of software through the web, and require little to no hard drive/storage room.

That's web 2.0

We'll be downloading all of our software per use.

Many already use a web-mail program such as Gmail.

I use an online wordprocessor and spreadsheet program (replacing MS Word and Excel) called Google Docs.
http://docs.google.com

Google Calendar replaces that function from MS Outlook.

There are online software versions of powerpoint here:

Adobe Premiere (video editing) is also online in a web 2.0 format here:
