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.

"They took 5 browsers, Streamlined them in Opera"

January 15, 2016  |  By gman21858

2016-01-15 19:49:25  |  By gman21858

 |  Version: Opera 34.0.2036.47

Pros

it's fast, it learns as it goes, speed dial puts all your top items at your finger tips and you can get it no matter what your doing. I'm always looking at browsers to see what others are doing, I did this to Opera over a year ago and it's now my default browser.

Cons

Sometimes I run into a web site or page doing business or playing games and run into the not compatible but I write into the web site tell them whats up and before you know it, it's compatible. I just have to tell them it's the same as chrome, Safari, Fire Fox they are just not up to speed on Opera yet. When they are Opera is going to gain the big MO and be right up there with Google Chrome, Fire Fox, Microsoft Edge and IE 8,9,10,11,... Windows 10 which I have excepts Opera no problem.

Summary

If I have said it once or a million times just check it out for your self, the first thing you will notice are the similarities with Chrome, Safari, but Opera streamlined every thing and I think it's what makes it so fast even under a load, like I can download, upload, have 50 windows open, be playing a game and checking my bank and paying bills and you wouldn't even know any thing else is going on. I've done every thing above but I didn't have 50 windows I only had about 15, oh ya I was also listening to I heart radio and watching AFV on youtube. Look it's all about choices and what you like vs what you might like better. Give it a try a good try keep it as your default and you will see for yourself.

"Do yourself a favor and try it!"

December 30, 2015  |  By tdaso

2015-12-30 03:19:59  |  By tdaso

 |  Version: Opera 34.34.0.2036.47

Pros

Extremely good looks, fast, customizable.

Cons

Some minor customization issues

Summary

I'm writing about Opera developer 36. The reason for this (second) post is that I read here ridiculous and misleading reviews. Somebody says it doesn't support cut & paste (this is the statement of the year!!!) another says it crashes a lot (It's my default browser and it never crashes) somebody else says it's slow (search the internet to see that it is close or even equal to chrome in speed), even CNET rating comes from an ancient version of Opera. What's going on here? So, judge for yourselves - give it a try and don't believe reviews from people who don't bother even spending a couple of hours with a software they claim they tested!
Opera has everything going for it and a drop-dead gorgeous start page that is light years ahead of the competition!

 |  Version: Opera 34.34.0.2036.47

Pros

It works.Fairly good. Nothing about it stands out

Cons

No drop down menu which I prefer

Summary

I use FireFox. It generally works pretty well and is predictable. I thought I would give this a try. I do like having a drop menu and I'm not fond of the Boxes on the start page
