IE users with Google Toolbar 2.0 also doesn't know what is pop-up. IE built-in popup blocker may eliminate pop-ups completely (if enabled by default).
BTW, I think Opera sucks. It's compatibility is worse than IE/Mozilla.
I think if somebody don't want to use IE, then he should use Mozilla/Mozilla Firebird. Opera is NOT good as primary browser.
I use Opera as my alternate browser (IE as primary and for browsing 99% of my total browsing). It's higher incompatibility is good few some cases. DAP can grab links better from Opera since browser specific anti-download manager scripts doesn't work in Opera.

Wel, YMMV, but I've been using Opera as my primary browser for ages. About the only site I actually need to use IE, is my home banking site (it does a browser check, and will refuse anything but IE6 or NS7.. no way to fool it either).
In Opera (as in Mozilla/FB/..) you may need to toggle between different "identify as" setting for certain poorly coded websites, but other then that, I couldnt live without it anymore. Tabbed browsing (much better than in Mozilla), mouse gestures (never got it to work properly under Mozilla), near perfect popup killing, ctrl+scroll zoom, and little nifty little things like opening all bookmarks from a folder at once, decent printpreview, simple but usefull download manager, everything highly configurable, and I could go on and on. Sorry man, I just love my Opera
Anyway, I agree Mozilla is definately superior to IE, and has most of the features of Opera if you install the correct plugin, but there are just too many things I couldnt get working as I wanted. For instance, for some reason Mozilla insists in opening links in new windows instead of new tabs by default. I just HATE that. And like I said, the mouse gesture thing; I never got it to work properly either, so I am just sticking to Opera under both Windows and Linux.

I'm not talking only about "site not working". Opera often can't display many website as they look in IE. IE is the standard and Mozilla/Mozilla Firebird is better than Opera at displaying things correctly.
You can try <A HREF="http://www.myie2.com/html_en/home.htm" target="_new">MyIE2</A>, an IE mod. If somebody is using Mozila/Opera instead of IE only for features, then he can use it and forget about Mozilla/Opera features.
