Yea he beat me to it. It's funny how like, maybe 8 years ago, hardly anyone knew about this Firefox stuff, and then in the last like 5 years it just got HUGE. Both literally and of course figuratively speaking lol.
Back when it was a new browser it was awesome, and now, it's so big you need like... Well let me put it this way:
Look atg the new version of Thunderbird, and the minimum system requirements.... HOW is an EMAIL application in need of a gig of RAM? I mean seriously, I'm not some elitist.. OK I am, but I mean, I'm not saying "Well look at Mutt and Pine" or something like that, I flat out don't know any application for mail that needs THAT kind of stuff. I only have one machine that can run Thunderbird now! Why is that even remotely OK?
Then, look at Seamonkey and it's mail client...Half the needs and twice the speed, and nicer, for less RAM and CPU? I don't know how they get away with this crap.
Opera was one of the first things I installed on my new machine. It's generally that way regardless of OS. It's fast, it works, the mail client is cool even though you can't have folders lol, and it doesn't need resources like that.
If you're tired of Firefox using half your RAM, and you're wondering why exactly it is that a Mail program that isn't a mail server needs that much, and you're wondering why an application for browsing the web, not serving it, needs that crapload of resources, then just download Opera

Do that have adblocking in Opera? something like adblock+
i'll give Opera a test for 2weeks or so, atm i've been using Chrome from the Dev channel for my daily usage, there are a ton of extensions that make it more usable and not such a barebone's broweser with little configuration options.
i stopped using Seamonkey since they fiddled with it's internals and started making it more like firefox. It's heading down that bloated road

I don't know what they call it on Opera, but it has a lot of stuff. It also has Widgets, which you'll probably grow to love. You can see bash.org quotes, LOLCatz, and take notes, without loading anything from Windows. It's pretty neat.
January 7th, 2010 11:55 PM
Could you find out what it's called? i'm not to fond of the whole widget stuff
i've downloaded the installer so let me know the name and i'll strat playing with it prob monday or tuesday.

Oh just install it Coffee Cup! It's good for you! Besides, what browser do you know of that can detect when you're downloading from a server that's going slow, so it uses DSL style technology built in (You know, DSL works with compressing Data so it can make a POTS network go faster than 56K?) Well, Opera has that built in and the new version of Opera, also has a built in Web Server, file sharing, photo sharing, media player, all built in, yet it doesn't use your resources unless you activate it! It's amazing.
And the Mail client is a lot like Gmail where you don't have folders, but labels. Also the myopera page allows you to use it like a social networking site, and more.
Access your music library from anywhere, anytime and play music right from the Web browser. Or, direct your music through your favorite media player.
Share files directly from your computer easily and safely.
Share your personal photos with friends around the world without the need to upload them
Stream media online from your own computer with Opera Unite! Audio, video and etc.
There is way more. Anyway, I'll see if I can find the stuff you wanted, but I do feel like I'm the guy googling something FOR you But since you're my buddy, I guess I'll try lol.
Anyway, there is a reason that some members here not only reply to Firefox threads about how Opera is better, but a reason why me, who is picky as crap, says the same thing!
It's the only Windows Browser other than Seamonkey I actually use. I don't like Windows Web Browsers, but this one is different. I also use it on Linux and BSD, and, well, if you have a Nintendo Wii, Wii uses Opera too
Anyway, I'll look around and see what it's called. How come you don't like Widgets? The Opera ones are actually cool. They have everything from games to security checks for Browsers and even cryptography and decryption tools and password hashers.
Make Web pages load more quickly—block images, pop-ups, and plug-ins, as you wish.
^I'm assuming this is where it will be. Check that for now, but there is probably more available.
Perform movements with your mouse to navigate the Web with Opera's mouse gestures.
E-mail and feed integration
Use the built-in mail client and online feed reader as your default clients.
Reopen closed tabs
If you accidentally close a tab, you can retrieve it from the Closed Tabs button.
Store usernames and passwords, so they will be at your fingertips.
Save your open tabs, or start with the pages you had open when Opera was last closed.
Inline spell checker
Spell-check quickly as you type, with support for 48 languages.
Debug in a cross-device, cross-platform environment with the Opera Dragonfly tools.
Access, organize and search all of your e-mail with the fastest mail client available.
Search the full text from any Web site you visit, right from your address bar.
Choose from hundreds of skins, add or remove buttons, toolbars, or change the entire layout.
Preview a feed in a clean, multiple-column layout before subscribing to it.
EDIT 2 -
Block images, pop-ups, and plug-ins you do not want to see. Right-click and choose “Block content” to disable annoying elements selectively. To make Web pages load more quickly, or to avoid offensive content, temporarily turn off images by pressing the image button. In Opera, smart pop-up blocking is turned on by default.
Yea I think this is what you might like, but again, there is probably a lot more. Maybe my little Opera buddy can chime in here and let us know if there is another one he knnows of off the top of his head. I don't really use Adblock since I rarely have a problem with them with Opera anyway because by default, a lot of the annoying things online don't load anyway.
