One More Round: Opera Vs. Firefox

I came upon this post from CNET on a review of Opera 9.5 versus Firefox 3. Pretty interesting if you have been following the browsers’ updates the past month.

I’ve used both browsers and it’s pretty obvious that Firefox pulled out the stops for the jump from Version 2 to Version 3. Opera, while very solid, still offers more of the same from its offering in 9.5. It’salso intersting to note that the author of the CNET review pointed out that browsers are becoming more and more personalized, similar to what is happening to the mobile phone. Yes people do still care about Javascript parsing, web standards and XHTML rendering, but they seem to be more like threshold features nowadays. Issues pertaining to user satisfaction are becoming the new prominent battlefield.
