Opera vs Firefox etc a missing capability?

Post by ed » Tue Jan 01, 2019 2:23 pm

Firefox seems to me to be a real hog so I have moved to Opera which seems better.

There is one capability in FF that I cannot find in any other browser ... suppose a page has images that you want. You go to tools>Pageinfo>media and then wowie zowie all the images are ready for downloading. Sound familiar? Is there something like that in Opera that I am missing? What about Chrome <spit>?

Still doing Firefox for recreational purposes, but for business I just started using this one:

Recently I recommended Brave, but this one is quicker and the built in ad blocking is easier to manage.

Immediately crashed when I tried to import my bookmarks.

Anyway, I need my add-ons. :mrgreen:

Try Slimjet. Most Chrome add-ons work with it.

It's basically Chrome under the covers, but with security related enhancements and no phoning home.
