Opera just doesn’t cut it, atm

Flickr launched a major revamp earlier today. I haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, but naturally it doesn’t work properly with Opera. Google Notebook also launched today, with no Opera support. This is getting a little silly. Gmail, Google Calendar, Flickr, del.icio.us…Opera has problems with all of them. I still think it’s the most well-designed browser around, with by far the best interface, but if the rendering engine doesn’t improve dramatically then there’s going to be no choice but to switch to Firefox. Judging by the weeklies, Opera 9 has a long way to go if it’s to catch up.

Speaking of which, is there some build of Firefox that comes with the most useful extensions? I can’t believe I still have to trawl through the archive to get mouse-gestures and proper tab support, not to mention greasemonkey etc…
