    "It's the best!"

    September 20, 2010  |   By ddferrari

    Pros

    Speed. Security. TONS of useful, time saving features. Totally customizable.

    Cons

    There are some occasional compatibility issues with a few sites- big deal. Minimize Opera and open (booo) IE.

    Summary

    With mouse gestures, a built-in torrent client, the ability to choose your own skins for the interface and even choose the style of your forward-back-refresh buttons, etc, Opera is the king! Sadly (but a blessing in disguise), Opera only gets used by 2% of home PCs, so it's the safest browser on Earth. Seriously. It scored a perfect 100/100 on the ACID test. ALL the other browsers didn't make it to 60/100.

    If you have a slow connection, Opera Turbo can bring dial-up service speeds to approach DSL! The features of Opera are unsurpassed, and I would encourage everyone to give it a test drive.

    couldn't have said it better... the best customizable and featured browser out there.
