    "Not too shabby"

    October 20, 2010  |   By finalrain


    Rarely suffers from the memory leak problems that plague Firefox, very usable software, simple to operate.


    Not as fast as Chrome and doesn't implement Firefox-style AwesomeBar.


    Opera is my second favorite web browser. I use it alongside Chrome to keep my logged in sites separate from my browsing.

    It's not nearly as snappy as Chrome, but it's a very solid browser, looks nice, and plays well with others.

    It doesn't implement its equivalent of Firefox's AwesomeBar very well so if I've visited a site recently or bookmarked a site, it's probably not going to let me "remember" what the site was by typing in keywords in the addressbar. This is unfortunate because if I haven't a clue what the address is, I have to do a search. Rather obnoxious to find a recently viewed site that way. Yes, History is there, but browsing or searching that usually ends with me never seeing the site in the list and opening a search anyway.
