Just like a home brewed coffee I always have beside me while strolling 'round the net, Opera always bring a nostalgic phenomena that I seem to never get from other browsers at par with it. I stayed long with GC and MFF for the longest time I can remember, even had fun tweaking them to best fit my flavor and played around with their huge db of extensions but whenever I get updates for O, it never failed convincing me to get back (as opera seldom releases stable build so I stayed to giants for quite some time).
Despite of it being low on market share, I'm actually impressed by how the company stay put all throughout, staying cool while all the others rushing to get things done. Proud to say it pioneered a lot of innovations, and compiled it to a very tiny size; always aim minimalistic at its bet, not compromising the overall performance; utilizes power and memory efficiently giving us a fluid browsing experience and best of all, (at least for me :D ) the way its smooth scrolling ease in throughout the pages that NEVER tires my eyes. (Those who uses Opera knows what smooth scrolling is, I bet).
I mean, not being biased here but I think this is one of the most important things a feature-packed web browser should put a great effort to as this has a huge impact on over-all browsing experience, imho. Thumbs down to web developers who are lazy enough to implement web standards and exclude opera.
