Why I choose the Opera browser
There's nothing else with the amazing speed of Opera. It takes other browsers up to twice as long to load the same pages. After I started using Opera, it was near impossible to switch to any other browser. I tried switching to Google Chrome for one day. I found myself mindlessly trying to use mouse-gestures over and over again.
Opera's developer's are just amazing. Any small bug are problem is addressed, and fixed. Other browsers don't care that their browser is glitchy and don't listen to the community. Opera does.
Speed dial is one of the most important parts to Opera. I love being able to quickly just open a new tab, and quickly switch to Facebook, Google, or whatever, with or without using my mouse.
I've found myself using HTML5 and playing with it quite a bit lately. There are HTML5 tests which just crash on Firefox, but Opera handles without any trouble.
Everything I want to keep (Ex. photos that I've edited) I can just save it to my bookmarks, and I can just log into My Opera at school and show off my newest artwork.
I am a huge gamer. I need a browser that can handle games that are fairly heavy without lag. On Internet Explorer or even FireFox some games wont even load, and end up crashing.
I am running windows XP with only 504MB of RAM. Since I'm running several things, MSN, playing Music, GIMP, etc. Opera's dynamic memory usage allows every program to run smoothly without it being a memory hog.
What I love the most is that everything is already built into Opera. Which means I don't have to go around searching thousands of extensions to do what Opera can do by it's self.
