The report highlights Firefox's popup blocking, tabbed browsing, integrated Google search, extensions, download manager, speed and privacy options.

"You do understand that the opinion of firefox users is that firefox does everything opera does, as good or better"

one would have to disagree with this. firefox and opera are two completely different beasts. firefox is a basic browser while opera has everything preinstalled.

that firefox does everything opera does is not true either. does it go back instantly like opera?

but the most important difference is that opera is created with all those features in mind while in firefox they are just tacked on later, often causing clutter.

so while firefox might do most of what opera does, it doesn't do it as well or with such neat integration between features. for every extension more clutter is added to firefox.
