Editors' Review


Take one of the fastest, most modifiable browsers on a portable drive and use it on any computer. With Opera Portable Edition you'll never have to settle for using onboard options like Internet Explorer on any public computer again.

Opera Portable Edition behaves like most modern browsers and its sleek interface is a delight to look at. It works with practically no setup and pages load incredibly quickly. This portable browser can be personalized through various add-ons and apps. One thing you don't need to download is a pop-up blocker, as Opera has one already installed for you. Even though it's much smaller than the full version of Opera and other portable browsers, Opera Portable Edition is still powerful: you can have a dozen or more tabs open without the Web browser bogging down or crashing, even if you're streaming music or videos online.

People who already use Opera need no convincing to download Opera Portable Edition. This portable browser gives you all of the performance you love and it doesn't require confusing setup. Install this app on your portable drive if you have to use public computers often; it just might convert you into an Opera fan.

"12.16 - Bug found."

 |  Version: Opera Portable Edition 12.16


I have only been running it for a couple of days. It seems to be OK.


I am running this portable app from my flash drive. When I start it up, a blue Downloads folder is created in my User's Favorites folder.

I have set up the Downloads path in Opera's Preferences for my User's Downloads folder as follows:

The blue Downloads folder inside the Favorites folder is exactly the same as the "real" one just above the Favorites folder.

If I close Opera, delete the Downloads folder inside the Favorites folder, then reopen Opera, the Downloads folder is created again inside the Favorites folder. The create date/time for the Downloads folder inside the Favorites folder is when I opened Opera.

So, there is a bug in this version.

When I download something from the Internet, Opera tries to download it to my Documents folder. So, it is ignoring the path I set up and the new Downloads folder it created.


I am not sure if I will keep this portable browser. If there is one bug, there are probably others. I posted something to the website forum and another help forum. So far, no answers.
