Featured Freeware: The Opera browser

There are other better-known browsers out there, but that doesn't mean that Opera isn't worth using. Robust features, cross-platform synchronization, and fast loading make it hard to ignore and easy to use.

Although Firefox and Internet Explorer have claimed the lion's share of the Web browser market, that doesn't mean there aren't other worthwhile browsers out there. At the top of my list for a reliable second to Firefox, and holding the overall number one spot in many user's hearts, is Opera.

Available for Windows, Macs, and cell phones, Opera is stable, loads fast, and comes fully equipped with robust features including widgets and built-in syncing capabilities. The mobile version can now upload and download files directly from a phone without switching over to the phone's native browser, making it a great tool for updating your social networking pages on the go, and the appeal of having all your desktop's bookmarks just a sync button away from your cell phone shouldn't be understated.
