#26 Finding Preferences in Opera is very easy

Finding Preferences in Opera is very easy (Alt-P is pretty easy, for example)....let's face it....we fall in love with what we want to fall in love with, I guess. Anything else we consider to be inferior or just too difficult as we are already satisfied. This is one (probably the major reason?) that IE stays as the #1 used browser----people are satisfied and don't want to be bothered with something else. Some Firefox/Mozilla users don't want to be bothered with a program that is at least its equal in Opera and better in some areas, too. Give Opera a real try before passing it off as inferior. I've had Phoenix/Firebird/Firefox on my PC for the last several months, and I do like it, by the way.....I just like Opera a little more, though. With that said, it seems strange that Opera remains "in the dark" for so many, including the technology reviewers.
