How can I use multiple browsers more efficiently?

Any tools/tricks/plugins for surfing the internet with more than one browser at a time? I use Firefox, Opera, and Chrome all at the same time and want some way to get links and data from one to the other without continually copying and pasting.

However, I wish there was some way to switch links and data from one browser to the other quickly. For example, I'll open up a link in Opera, to see a blank screen or the "Please Install Adobe Flash" text. This requires me to copy and paste the URL from Opera to Firefox. I've gotten pretty good at it (F8, Ctrl-C, Alt-tab, Alt-D, Ctrl-V) but I wish there was some way to just right click on the page or link and have it open up in Firefox. The same occurs when I use Firefox and the page loads up several annoying plugins or images. I have to do this for everything in Chrome since I don't want to use it for anything other than Google sites (and Chrome has less features than the other two).
Are there browser plugins for any of the browsers that can make this quicker? Possibly Windows or Mac right-click handlers at the operating system level? AutoHotKey or AppleScript tools?
