"Opera is the real little guy under-dog browser."

April 28, 2012  |  By desertdan1

 |  Version: Opera 12.0 beta

Pros

Love the zoom,

Cons

Speed, stability continuous loading most of all poor scrolling. I keep it on as a back-up

Summary

When Opera starts addressing issues presented to them by their users some of which like scrolling that are older than Firefox they will actually be able to compete with chrome & firefox and believe me I am pulling for them!

"Seems to have better browsing than Opera 11.5"

October 27, 2011  |  By Stinger15

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

-It seems, with the websites I go to, have better compatibility with more advanced HTML and Javascript than Opera 11.5
-Also seems faster than Opera 11.5. Very fast browsing.
-Wide range of useful extensions. And all of the ones I've used work with alpha.
-Seems very stable to be in alpha.

Cons

-Still a memory hog. Even worse than Opera 11.5.
-Even though its better than Opera 11.5, it still doesn't correctly show all websites. I have to open IE to display them correctly.

Summary

As I've said for 11.5, I would use this browser 100% if it were to display all websites correctly, because the browser is that good.

"Awesome! A very satifying browser"

May 04, 2011  |  By mitchjmh

 |  Version: Opera 11.50 alpha

Pros

Fast as lightening and looks better than previous version (on skin and font appearance).

Cons

I've only been using it for 2 days but haven't seen any negatives to report.

Summary

Firefox 4 or Opera are the best. Chrome has too many shortcomings. This new Opera is the best of them all I think.

"It just keeps getting better."

August 28, 2009  |  By Cnqaus

 |  Version: Opera 10 Release Candidate

Pros

Quick, light, secure, love they layout and ability to change it around. Plenty of add-ons.

Cons

Not totally convinced with Turbo.

Summary

Don't usually go in for Beta's, rather wait for the finished product, but I couldn't wait for Opera to update. I bit the bullet and I'm not disappointed, it works beautifully.

"Tried all: chrome, firefox, explorer, avant, and opera."

August 28, 2009  |  By tanglefast

 |  Version: Opera 10 Release Candidate

Pros

Fast, customizable and dependable.

Cons

A few missing features found in other browsers.

Summary

firefox - great features through extensions, but is SO slow (boot up, loading pages)

chrome - doesn't load some pages (requires refreshing or not at all). choppy scrolling while loading picture heavy sites. missing features found in the others.

opera - has the features found on firefox through extensions (mouse gestures, bookmark syncing) but has the speed of chrome (fast boot up and page loads)

the only cons i can say is that firefox has a little more choice (ie, better adblocking; opera u have to do it manually and it misses a lot) and opera is a little more quick (although the scrolling is more smooth while loading graphic intense websites). also, using a netbook, screen real estate is very important and chrome removes the unnecessary title bar, however opera let's me remove both the tab bar and location bar and i just use the keyboard shortcuts to navigate.

some things i found on opera that i don't think are on the other's which is very useful is the customizable search ability. typing "g" first in the location bar will let you search straight into google, y for yahoo. you can also very easily create your own, so i have gi for google image, r for rotten tomatoes and i for imdb.

also, since i do not have the tab bar (to save screen real estate) their pop up box with the list of tabs is very useful.

the bookmarks bar resizes first by title then by size so it will nearly always hold all your bookmarks instead of the expandable double arrow. bookmarks can also have nicknames that you can type to open the bookmarks and their speed dial front page also assigns numbers to the pages that you can press.

their speed dial page also can increase or decrease in number.

the improvements they can work on are the adblocking, catching up a bit in speed to chrome and removing the title bar. my last gripe is chrome's autocomplete in the location bar is more useful as i do not need to press down on my arrow key to autocomplete.
