    When I used it, I just used the "Brushed" theme to get rid of the cartoony look, and the Google toolbar.

    Moved onto Opera since then, faster!

    I use the following:

    IEview - for those pesky pages that won't load in firefox.

    SessionSaver - Saves the websites that I was viewing when I close firefox

    Tab x - adds an x to the tabs so I can close them

    Smoothwheel - set how fast the scroll wheel goes down a page.

    Yes, very, actually more so than FF because since FF has gained so much in popularity, there have been quite a few exploits that emerged for it. Opera being a smaller percentage of the market share for now..(even though gaining fast)..it's not in the eyes of the exploiters yet.

    Another one gaining in popularity..K-Meleon ...based on the Gekko engine though.
