Opera tabs are different then from other browsers. You can arrange it, cascade it, tile it, move it, duplicate it, restore it and customize it. You can customize and move every element you need or you dont need. With skin change and hiding some elements you can make it looks simpler then Chrome.

I've had some issues as of late with text input forms in Opera.
It also seems to be a memory hog.
I used Opera for about 2-3 Years, mainly because it was the only browser to support WML natively (Firefox WML plugin rendered the pages horribly)
Opera are doing well for themselves as a company, with Browsers for Computers, Mobile Phones, Smart Phones, Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii, they are doing quite a few good things, and I remember back in the day when they used to have ads in the browser program itself, now that was a definate turn-off for the browser, but glad they got rid of it :D
I have opera in my PC but most of the time I use only Chrome.

^^^ I feel that opera mini is good for mobile users. Its simply the best and fastest.

I just removed my Opera 9.64 and installed Opera 10 Beta 1.
I must admit that this browser is pure evil. Facebook is flying on it. There is no more that stop and go thing that happening sometimes.
All pages are flying on it.
