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.

"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 *****.
