Here is Part III of "A Week at the Opera" brought to you by the TechWrap.
Today, I load up Opera and I noticed a left-most button. Naturally, I clicked it. Out came a sidebar that shows Bookmarks, Transfers, History and Links. The last thing that it shows is the really cool notes. Basically, you can type little notes to yourself. For me this is a big help because I always have to remind myself, "Edit HTML on the site" or "Make a podcast today." Very cool feature that is probably available on Firefox through some obscure extension. Definitely a +.
I'm subscribed to about 11 feeds through Firefox. I had heard from previous sources that Opera's RSS feed reader is amazing. However, I beg to differ. To look at a feed you have to go to the very top and hit the feed button. Then you have to select which feed to view. Then once you decide which one to view you have to look at all the different articles. In Firefox, they only take, really, the most recent articles for you to see and it is in a nice chronological order from newest to oldest. With Opera it goes from oldest to newest! Which means you have to scroll all the way down just to see the newer articles.
When you click an article it doesn't take you to the feed location (as in the site itself). No, it just shows the text of the article. Well that defeats the purpose of even looking at the internet in the first place! Everything should be all feeds according to Opera (at least that's how it seems).
With Firefox, it is quick. It is easy. It is better. Period. It is right there in your browser where it is extremely easy to see. Then you just click it and voila all the articles are right in front of you. When you click an article it takes you to the site!
Also, Opera does not have the standard RSS logo. I'll give them leeway on this just because it is most likely coming in the newest version. Hopefully....
