Editors' Review

+

Major alternative browser Opera has continued to refine and improve its product. The browser functions well and includes unique features that set it above its competitors.

Pros

Extremely clean look: The newest version of Opera embraces a modern and minimalist aesthetic.

Speed Dial: Opera's Speed Dial functions like a permanent bookmark panel, offering links to the most popular websites like Amazon and YouTube as giant panels marked with company logos. You can also customize your Speed Dial page and add any websites that you use on a regular basis.

Integrated search and navigation: Instead of having two text boxes at the top of the screen, Opera utilizes a single bar. You can use it as either a search box or as a navigation box. This keeps the browser uncluttered, while still giving you full functionality.

Cons

Redundant features: Opera has a bookmarks menu, a "stash" feature, and the aforementioned Speed Dial. They all do essentially the same thing, which is mark content so you can find it easily at a later date.

Bottom Line

If you're unhappy with your current Web browser and prefer a clean, modern look, Opera is certainly worth trying.

"Sucks Since NSA took over Opera"

May 25, 2015  |  By FredVanOl

 |  Version: Opera 29.0.1795.60

Pros

Lots of skins

Cons

Direct link to NSA, Crashes, Doesn't work with a lot of sites. Disconnects if can't breach your firewall in weird ways (even though Opera itself is allowed)

Summary

Older versions of Opera still work OK but newer versions have NSA hooks that make it very problematic.

What's new in version 29.0.1795.60
This update includes chromium update to version 42.0.2311.152 and a couple of bug fixes for Mac platform. We fixed a small problem when selecting URL on Mac OS X 10.10.3. Also, we received a few complains from users with old version of Flash plugin installed about video problems in full screen mode. All users will be informed to update their Flash plugin to the latest version. This will soon come to Windows as well.
