    Because I prefer Opera

    To me, FireFox just doesn't seem as user-friendly as Opera is. Besides, I find Opera lighter and faster loading than FF.

    I used to be obsessed with opera, the speed dial, fast page loading, yet they render pages (IMO) something like IE, yet much less bugs.

    Opera renders things almost exactly the same as FF, there are major differences between that and the way IE works.

    But hey, it's not acceptable to develop a site which doesn't work consistently across the major browsers, so you shouldn't really judge a browser on it's rendering - just the site

    I know they are supposed to render like FF but most of the time it has the same problems as IE so I sorta compare them

    lol.

    I find if you design for opera (using strict XHTML and CSS, and a good understanding in what CSS attributes actually do [you'd be suprised at the amount of people who can't tell the difference between margin and padding]), it works cross browser 97% of the time.

    My friend tried to tell me that padding did what margin did and vice versa.

    Opera doesn't render it entirely the same. In my opinion, Firefox renders certain things (mainly the sizing of form controls, etc.) more beautifully than Opera.
