---Could we have someone to take the place of IE---

Opera is great. It has all the best features of the browsers, but it has the least
recognition. Take "Speed dial" for example. It puts your 9 most used bookmarks in the
screen when you create a blank tab. It also has many add ons, but it's community is
just beginning. Also, it was recentlly rated very highly in CPU magazine, with its
only flaw being it's lack of add ons, which is greatly increasing. Opera will be
releasing a new version of the browser; 9.52, which will have many enhancements,
including speedier performance than any of it's competitors. In fact, Opera is so
good that until recently, people were willing to pay for it.

Firefox has all of Opera's virtues (including "Speed Dial") and more. And as you noted, Firefox's add-ons far surpass Opera's.

Yes, either browser could replace IE7 but the market dominance of IE is too powerful. It comes loaded on 90%+ PCs purchased. Plus IE just steals every idea Firefox/Opera comes up with and includes it in IE. How do you compete with that!
