There is a saying in my language, "You're as many times a person as many languages you know." Obviously this applies for browsers too.
Switch a language from you native to English in Opera: Two clicks in Preferences.
Switch a language from you native to English in Firefox: First, Google a lot, because you can't find it anywhere. Then ask on forums. You have to go all the way through Mozilla FTP to some generic-named folder and download and instal xpi. For ability to quickly switch between them however, you need another addon.
I'm not saying anything

I'm a molecular biologist and in work I use internet every day, and therefore internet browser has to be my best all-time helping friend. Of course you can make the interface look as you like, add various buttons, customize your menus, toolbars, gestures and keyboard shortcuts.
But Opera can make even your work more easy, efficient and pleasant. Let's see what the fastest browser on Earth has for serious scientific work.
- windows - I don't know many browsers, that will be working with more than 50 opened windows/tabs and still be running perfectly smooth. I need lots of tabs with avarious databases, publications, company pages, on-line orders most of the time.
- searches - Creating shortcut search by two clicks and using search shortcuts makes working with sequence, gene or publication databases very convinient, not to mention obligate Google "g". I even created search shortcut for a english-czech dictionary and czech grammar reference and fire them all directly from the adress bar. I want to find things very often and I want to find them quick.
- notes - Oh my, whatever you may wish to quickly note somewhere: part of sequence, publications often-used email order sentences, definitions or this list, or just any important thought. Even better with anchor to the original site, if you note a text from a web page.
- panels - Create your own mini-page applications, for getting complement of the sequence, centrifuge force calculator or handy reminder of aminoacid abbreviations.
- widgets - I'm using simple timer to tell me when certain operations are finished (like my tea )
- type-in find in page - Can't live without it, quick, neat and efficient. Don't need to read through the whole page when looking for a specific sentence or word. Just press "." anytime, anywhere. Extremely usefull when searching in sequences.(also supports Ctrl+V which is great)
- Speed dial - I didn't use it first, but now I found out it is handy to have a selection of frequently used pages (publication database Medline, sequence database Ensembl or BLASTn input page) accessible from a new tab or just on Ctrl+Speed dial number on any tab.
- I didn't even mention mouse gestures, because they virtually become part of my body.

, since yesterday.
It's because a small program made by my friend, called WinFortune for it resembles "fortune" messages from *nix systems. You run it and it simply chooses random joke or quote and displays in small window.
Jokes and quotes are stored in a separate text file, so you can add your own favourite ones.
I tweak it to a menu by a simple line in custom menu.ini [Document popup menu]
Item, "Tell a joke" = Execute program, "C:\Program Files\wfortune\wfortune.exe"
You can get it here
. Thank you goes to Danny
(I'm just thinking about a script, that would read aloud a random joke when your browser decides you work too much

I'm asking myself more and more often: what about things I've said I would do and I haven't done. Because I don't have time to answer them again and again I made a report where everything is explained.
First, I'm in the middle of ten thousands things. I have time to do none of them and if I accidentally do, it's only to the detriment of something else.
Currently I'm planning to do:
- script to reverse complement a string
- learn C++ before trying to do the above
- new pages
- scan more of my sketches (and finally rescan the tiger)
- new pages
- Opera tutorial
- masters degree
- Opera tutorial, please
- learn to make vector graphics
- learn to make at least some graphics if I want neat pages
- make pages for lab
- test Opera betas in free time
- first: make some free time
- stop making free time and start work on thesis
- translate CSS2 recommendation to czech
- at least something about Opera plugins, please, please
- translate subtitles for Babylon 5 episodes
- learn more about Alan Turing's theories
- start to look like an expert in leukemia
- view about 50 films I missed so far..
- start to remember things I'd like to write here
- learn PHP
- collect all Asimov's short stories in english
- buy a bonsai
- stop making myself a blogger
- at least something about Opera...
Shift the priorities at will.

Oh what is my tweak page, that it is. Yes, well you may well ask, what is my tweak page. And well you may. Yes, my word you may well ask what it is, this tweak page of mine. Well, this tweak page that I have - that is to say, which is mine ...is mine.
(edited version of my favourite dinosaur theory)
Well, not exactly. A thing I made one afternoon to ease my repeated INI editing. Since version change so quickly, and the menus within them.. the most safe way is to write a tweak from the sketch (not the dinosaur one).
So I made a page of tweaks
I use (therefore my
), in what I hope is a comprehensive design, with some little helping link-outs. I wouldn't claim for a second that any of them are my invention, so lets this stand clear
Most of them come from 'classic' sources like my.opera community or Moose's elk Dev menu. Anyway I hope now everybody understand what that 'my' means
I didn't wanted to make it too much public but I already found link on it on some pages so, well.. at least I can explain the name
Note: If you wonder why there are always some strange icon names after almost every tweak (the unimportant stuff at the end of the comma sets), I'm kind of obsessed with icons, I have a lots of them. If you like to have your own to, edit your skin, if not just delete it.

Wouldn't seem so much important but at last I decided to use Opera for mail. (It is important for me as I resisted any
email client for a long time)
Well.. not exactly Opera but Huginn, a setting invention of Rijk
. It's great!
Instalation of betas always prevent me from trying mail there, too much work with moving the mail and re-set to my settings. Doesn't happen this time.
And I like the idea of changing everything to different name, so i renamed opera.exe to huginn.exe, as well as the folder. And did a bit renaming inside the menu too (now I have "About Huginn" or "Huginn help" there). I'm planning to do some more huginnization of this version (e.g. change some bit of help or so) to make things perfect
Nice fly bird..
Huginn ok Muninn
fliúga hverian dag
óumk ek of Hugin
at hann aptr ne komit,
þó siámk meirr um Munin.

Finaly I got to start to work on my new idea. Which is, not by chance, related to Opera. I thought I should make a site in my language (czech) to help Opera expand. Something like "How to become Opera Lover in 21 days" but bit different. And czech, definitely
Becouse lot of people like I was, can just simply miss Opera becouse of not knowing anything about it. About the ingenious customization an so on. So I said, lets show them!
Well..lets just hope I could really finish this idea.
I have lots of them. Too many for one life I'm affraid
But I wish to, yes.
Hmm, and do something with my english as well. Seems worse and worse these days.

..I realised again, that Opera is really a marvellous browser. As a little celebration, I decided to start this journal, a thing I never did before.
Maybe a big mistake, but I am such way
