Opera is the fastest, but it doesn't support some of the stuffs IE and Firefox do. Firefox can go faster than IE if you tweak it a bit, but IE doesn't "fall asleep" in the middle of a page load like Firefox does.

yes, definitely Opera is the "fastest", but lacks support for addons and stuff like Firefox.

You're right. Opera has more than Firefox "out of the box," but there are more add-ons for Firefox than for any other browser. That having been said, I must confess that I am thoroughly disappointed in Opera 9.5. It has Haute Secure built in, making it theoretically impregnable. But something has apparently gone wrong with the rendering engine or something, as Opera now hangs just like Firefox. Most people are not using Opera or Firefox; they're still using IE. And appropriately so, as IE is (and likely always will be) the most standards-compliant of all browsers. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Microsoft will not screw it up like Opera and Firefox have been screwed up. Whenever the alternative browsers buckle under the pressure and fail to load a page, IE is the one to rise up to the pressure and get the job done.

Not doubt, Mozilla Firefox is the fastest internet Browser, and it is the most safe browser. It`s strong cause it has many add-ons. Try to use it!

Firefox isn't the fastest or the toughest. Opera is the fastest by a landslide, and also the most inherently secure. One nifty Firefox has is NoScript, which can make you pretty tough. But support for ActiveX and other common controls is a vulnerability in itself. Visit the National Vulnerability Database to see for yourself just how much less secure Firefox is than Opera. It's scary!

I'd say Firefox is less stable than IE or Opera. Firefox has a habit of stalling between pageloads, forcing you to refresh two or three times before you can move on. Neither IE nor Opera have this problem, and the latest version of Firefox has yet to address this issue.

hmm, i think that opera is the fastest because it is more stable than the other browsers. internet explorer is the worst of all three browsers because sometimes it dont load the images after some time of using it. i must then restart internet explorer. with opera i never had these problems. firefox i used once for a special site but now i got it installed on my pc but it's not in use. also i dont like firefox somehow. opera looks way more cooler than firefox. and these addons for firefox i dont need. the time i used firefox i had only one addon: the proxy where you can control tor with mozilla. it was cool but i dont need to hide my ip and also you internet is getting slower because of the proxy...
