Moving to Opera from Firefox

Ah…

A colleague recommended Opera over Firefox. The main reason for me to switch was the built-in bookmark synchronization and mouse gestures. And they are truly great.

But…

I have quite a lot of problems with Opera, some of them very surprising.

  • Some WYSIWYG editors don’t work well, or at all
  • When the focus is on a checkbox in a form, pressing enter checks/unchecks instead of sending the form
  • No RikaiChan plugin
  • No Live Bookmarks

That said, if the bookmark synchronization works without problems as expected, I’ll probably still stick with Opera, as that is huge to me.
