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.

"Has been ruined since Opera 12."

July 20, 2015  |  By fredg06

 |  Version: Opera 30.0.1835.125

Pros

Installed fast; and then uninstalled fast with Wise Program Uninstaller.

Cons

Very Slow pulling up websites....much slower than Firefox. Very slow opening Gmail, and Yahoo Mail. Takes much longer than Firefox to clear all History, Cookies, Cache, etc. No Menu Bar.

Summary

Opera 12 was very, very good. But, now with newer constructed web sites, Opera 12 doesn't work very well anymore. So, I tried this new version of Opera. They have really, really, ruined it, as someone else said.
It takes about 4 or 5 mouse clicks to find anything in settings now, and it's all packed away, trying to hide everything in settings. Takes forever to clear the cache, and cookies, if you can remember where to find it!! I'll stick with my new version of Firefox.
This Opera version is as slow as Internet Explorer 8, which is installed with my XP.

"Exponentially improving browser!"

July 15, 2015  |  By tdaso

 |  Version: Opera 30.0.1835.125

Pros

Clean & fast

Cons

Chromium memory consumption issues

Summary

All criticism issues here are already overturned and every new version brings great improvements. Side bar is back - bookmarks are better & smarter than ever - looks are incredible - extensions are there for every taste - among the best in speed - syncing is great - speed dial is top-notch. If somebody wants to criticize without misleading potential downloaders, I suggest spending some time to test the browser before writing a review. As for the outrageous CNET rating, it's like they are still reviewing the ancient version 15 and not the current v. 32. Do not take my words as true: just take a ride, see for yourselves and be ready to get amazed with every new version.
