I was waiting for a guinea pig.
It's quite nice.
- I have tried Seamonkey because of the email intergration. But Seamonkey is so far behind and clumsy. Opera's email is very nice.
- I like the FF GSpace add-on, Opera Unite's is even better with the file sharing.
- The music/audio sharing that WInamp offers- Opera Unites is faster loading and it's a hell of a lot smoother.
- The lounge for chat is nice and the other folks do NOT need to be on Opera to chat nor do they need IRC.
- The web server is still a bit beyond me, but looks very interesting. No php support yet and I am not sure how you run a website from your desktop but I am still looking.
- You have photosharing (1gb limit if I am reading it correctly)
- It has all the regular features of FF that I like.
The only thing I miss is the add-ons, which I am over addicted to to begin with. At first glance, I don't much care for the Opera Widgets (which seems to be there version of add-ons)
And it looks like a lot more. Plus the potential to build more Unite Apps in html/java/flash. I just like that it's all in one and very clean and easy. Nice interface, nice graphics, The speed is nice to. I had only two overload messages, I guess due to everyone downloading and stuff. I have tried Flock but I don't use ALL the social services they promote and can't stand seeing all the buttons and crap for them if I don't use them. I hate clutter. This seems to offer the best of a lot of different apps and browsers.
I have to say, after being a FF fan from the very start, I am fast becoming an Opera fan.
