Now Opera is also free so the number of Opera users will increase rapidly but I'll continue to use Firefox because of it's extensions feature.

Firefox.

When I used Opera, it was slow and crashy, even though the ability to customize almost everything was incredibly nice.

Why do you use both?

I have IE7, Opera and Firefox, but Firefox is the only thing i use because it is so good. Plus i cannot browse without all the extensions i have for it.

May be I'll use Flock in the future, when they will release the final version of it. Flock is open source, cross platform and based on Mozilla technologies.
But till then Firefox will be my primary browser ;)

Both the browsers are good but Opera is not much faster and nicer than Firefox.

I always have a bunch of sites open in Firefox so for surfing I use Opera.
Both of them 'remember' what sites I was on.

Firefox, although I really do like some of the features that Opera has. Firefox would be way cool if it had some of the features Opera did.

Firefox looks limited in features but with extensions it has all the same features (perhaps, even more) available for download.

Opera users would like to install following extensions in Firefox:
  • Mouse Gestures
  • ReloadEvery
  • Tabbrowser Extensions
  • Web Developer
  • QuickNote
  • Statusbar Clock
  • ieview
  • Paste and Go

Both are equally good renders the pages differently.

I prefer Firefox for browsing the forums like WinMatrix and Neowin

opera is too much like aol for me. firefox is nice and simple and allows you to focus on the internet instead of your browser and all its millions of configurations.
