## Tasks to which Opera is much better suited than Firefox

You can use the Launchy extension to bring up Opera for things that Opera does much better than Firefox, even when Firefox has the extensions that I do use.
1. Find (Ctrl+F), keeps the first FIND centered in the middle of the page, subsequents Finds do not cause scrolling until needed, so that you can always see the string in context. [Bug: 171237 and [Ext] userChrome.js], better described in Bug: 412334 In fact with Opera Find ALL is done automatically as well and much faster.
2. Watch out for signs of Firefox keyword (bookmark tag) and Firefox bookmarks in general becoming improved into uselessness as evidenced in early Firefox Betas.

## Chronology

I keep a copy of Opera around as a backup browser, and have done so for as long as I've used Firefox, which I guess was in 2004.
• 2008-01-16, well the bookmarks in Firefox 3.0b2 is really broken as far as I am concerned.  Keywords the "OpenBook" extension is not working either, though Firefox developers have promised to give back usage.  But I discovered that OpenBook extension essentially exists in Opera 9.23 so have upgraded now to Opera 2.25.  Opera usage lack the ease of use of the OpenBook extension in that you have to click on "Details >>" to get there, but Description is filled in like in "OpenBook" and Nickname is what is used for the keyword. Nickname or alias is actually a better term because keywords are used in HTML more or less like the introduced Firefox tags which are nowhere near as practical as the keyword in firefox (nickname in Opera).
