Editors' review

With a new ad-free version of its browser, Opera has finally taken care of its one weak link--those annoying ads in its interface. The premise of Opera has always been the same: develop the fastest, smallest, and most full-featured browser available. Opera maintains the tradition with its latest version. Offering unprecedented speed and low memory usage, Opera is still embarrassing the big browsers by loading most Web pages in a fraction of the time they use.

In addition to fine-tuning speed and performance, the browser includes support for bidirectional languages such as Arabic and Hebrew, and a slide-show feature for Web-based photos. Other features sweeten the deal, such as spatial navigation, a built-in e-mail client with spam parameters, and IRC chat support. As always, Opera continues to offer good-quality encryption and other security measures.

Although Opera's default interface wastes space with redundant tools that visually overpower the browser window, it is wholly customizable. Skins let you change the browser's look to suit your preferences.

    "Excellent browser, specially for Broadband users..."

    June 10, 2006   |   By ashishashish_5

    Version: Opera Browser 8.54

    Pros

    The thing i like the most is that the pages which we leave open while exiting the browser, remain open even when we open the mail browser again any time, so that saves many MBs, if v have to open a particular page almost everyday to sign in or anything like that...

    Another feature is the 'Wand', its good, at least it lets us sign in without entering the password even...

    On more is the private setting for a particular windows a\c, i.e. other a\c person cannot use my "wand setting", so it quite safe too...

    Cons

    Not much that i dont like about this browser, but one thing is that its quite slow in opening compared to Window's Internet Explorer, i.e. it occupies much or ur RAM...
