My thoughts are Chrome is better

Well ive got Chrome and Mozilla and Mozilla would have to be the worst. It loads slowly whereas Opera is super fast.

You'd be the only one

Old Opera or chrome based new version?

Either, but some sites balk at the ver 12.17 build. I have both on my computer and use whichever one I want for the job. It's the best browser by a country mile, fast, clean, no vices. IE is useless, Firefox is too big and messy, chrome should be what Opera is.

Latest version Opera29

Old Opera was best browser made, had everything going for it but then they went chrome engine and wrecked it. 12.17 is now to old to handle some sites. I now use Pale Moon and find it very good, give that a go, striped down version of Firefox, does everything well and updated regularly.
