    Default opera is awesome engineering

    opera is awesome engineering. It uses only a single core. But its UI is completely separate from the layout.
    Chrome does it by creating a different process for each tab, which is excessive IMHO. Each process can use a different core.
    Firefox does nothing of this sort. Its UI and layout are tied togeher. So if a layout/JS is taking too long to process, the whole UI slows. Which is poor engineering .

    The awesome thing about Opera is that it manages to do so using a sigle core only. Which is pretty big. Of course its closed source. But give credit where due.

    It's a great company to work for too.. You get full freedom to select OS/distro for your computer, everyone in management (I think) has a programming background and pretty much every perk you've read that they have at Google (except free candy and soda, we get fruit and coffee).

    good to hear, I love Opera, been using it for as long as I can remember, only thing I don't like is that when I report a bug I don't get the feeling its looked at or worked on, an open bugzilla or a none-computer reply would be better

    Opera is a brilliant browser. For me it's only second to Firefox. I am glad that they give Linux this kind of support.
