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.

"Get it directly from Opera"

April 27, 2015  |  By cnetmattreviews

 |  Version: Opera 28.0.1750.51

Pros

When downloaded and installed from Opera, everything worked just fine. I just now started using it, so can't say to much about the product, yet.

Cons

When downloading from CNET, my antivirus and firewall flagged malware "SUSPICIOUS.CLOUD.9", and the "product" was automatically deleted/quarantined.

Summary

Download directly from Opera.
This is not the first time I've experienced and heard of this from CNET. While CNET provides valuable services, they really need to get it together if they expect to be around much longer.

"You gotta love it!"

March 31, 2015  |  By dexteriot

 |  Version: Opera 28.0.1750.48

Pros

Im a programmer and Im a long time Firefox and Chrome user. I tried Opera in the past but because it didnt have a feature where you could clear browsing history on exit I havent used it much. Recently I decided to try it again because FF was slow and wouldn't work well with videos. I was absolutely surprised to find new and improved Opera! The speed dial works well, I love the Discover feature. It is fast, works well with videos and other media. It still lacks clear history on exit feature, thats why I still use FF and Chrome, but I really, really like it!

Cons

No 'clear browsing history on exit' option.

Summary

Love it!

"One step away from MALWARE"

March 20, 2015  |  By tuliphead

 |  Version: Opera 28.0.1750.48

Pros

minimal interface, if that rocks your boat

Cons

- minimal interface, everything required is hidden or simply does not exist - no menus, no update option, most preferences either hidden or missing
- Does not uninstall - had multiple versions of this CRAP on my computer going all the way back to version 10. I had foolishly assumed that each new version replaced the previous one. Also when tried to uninstall ALL versions it flat out refused to allow me to do so. Finally had to resort to RevoUninstaller to get rid of this heap of *****.
- Hogs resources like none of the other browsers. Occassionally crashes computer when opening multiple pages which no other browser does.

Summary

Dangerous resource hogging piece of MALWARE *****.

"Home Button"

March 15, 2015

 |  Version: Opera 28.0.1750.40

Pros

better and faster than chrome and firefox.

Cons

No home button and can't set up a home page only can set up a start page(which I don't need) and when i import bookmarks from HTML file I need to open folders after folders after folders just to get to my bookmarks just like firefox and the menu button on the top left kind like firefox menu too, it's really really bad.

Summary

so back to using chrome, at lest chrome is better and faster than firefox

"I don't like the current revision of OP!"

February 22, 2015  |  By GCG1000

 |  Version: Opera 27.0.1689.69

Pros

Nothing I can't get from Chrome!

Cons

It's a mess!

Summary

Sadly, they gave up on Marlin and M2! Marlin was one of the safest rendering engines ever conceived! Chrome Browser 64 bit in NOW my browser of choice. OP missed the boat! Marlin was fast, secure and superb!

"Switched to Opera from Chrome and FF"

February 11, 2015

 |  Version: Opera 27.0.1689.66

Pros

1. Wicked fast - from my browsing experience, Opera is easily the fastest browser compared to FF and Chrome.
2. Speed dial - I use it most of the time.
3. Unique - It has a unique interface which is simple and efficient.
4. Inherent news feed - self explanatory.
5. Bookmark management - earlier, Opera did NOT support bookmark import from either files or other browsers. Gladly, they fixed this issue.
6. Rocker gestures - takes some time getting used to, but you'll eventually love it.

Cons

1. Google search bar above the speed-dial icons ruins the browser's look, but you can choose to remove it dev. mode.

Summary

I found that this browser caters to all of my needs - it's fast, neat and has a news feed. I guess Opera's done a great job here and is back to its innovative standards.
