"A Web Browser, That is Advanced, yet Easy and Quick to use."

May 31, 2007  |  By Monsieur Ocean

 |  Version: Opera 8.0

Pros

Opera is a major advancement is Web Browsers, it's better than Firefox, and Internet Explorer.

No frequent "Urgent Updates" as Internet Explorer does this every 2 weeks and doesn't fix or help anything, but takes up useful Hard Drive space, by The GB. Unlike IE, Opera is updated, once every 2 1/2 months and The Update takes care of everything Small and Big, while taking up less than 4-7 MB.

Opera can be Modified For Everyone or can be Modified just you and can be password-protected just like all your Website passwords, E-Mail passwords, Bank/Credit card numbers, PINs, even your Phone#'s, They are all protected.

Oh, and a really neat thing about, Opera when your downloading, is that it helps in case, of power shortage, black-out, "freezing", and Internet disconnection, Opera will continue your download, unless the site has "line" downloading, you'll have to "get back in line."

In all, I truly recommend That You download Opera.

"The very best browser!"

March 14, 2007  |  By mariemarie2002

 |  Version: Opera 8.0

Pros

Opera is beautiful, FULLY customizable, feature rich (mouse geatures, integrated email, and so so much more). Opera users are the nicest, most helpful, and warmest people I have encountered on the net. It is blazingly fast for real and I have tried other browsers but nothing is as convenient, brilliant as Opera. It feels like it really belongs to you-not like being trapped into a corporate version of what your very personal computer screen and browsing experience should be. I love Opera and you will too.

Cons

Nothing to not like-except that some pages won't cooperate. Some sites just won't play nice.

March 01, 2007  |  By emenenus

 |  Version: Opera 8.0

Pros

1. why I choose opera over the firedog: can save a whole sheet with pics'n'stuff in an mht. FIREFOX CAN'T!!!

2. why I choose opera over ie:

a) the rss reader suit my needs a 1000 times better (it's THE RSS READER!)

b) can open and sustain more than 4 open tabs at a time (ie7 freezes at 4+)

c) far better imagerendering capabilities

Cons

google docs and google spreadsheet wont serve you if using opera. for now. but there are workarounds...

"Simply the best"

December 14, 2006  |  By psgenfan

 |  Version: Opera 8.0

Pros

My Computer has been a victum of a root kit that would overload browser if it ever called a website (which is commonly used on websites like CNET and Digg).

I have been using Opera for awhile and decided to try to block it, at first it didn't work at all, but today I realized that I could block a site with completly by putting one of "*"'s at the end. Now I am free to roam the internet.

Firefox couldn't do it, Windows couldn't do it. Opera could.

Cons

They could of told me about the *

"Stable, fast, customizable, FREE!"

December 12, 2006  |  By kilamil

 |  Version: Opera 8.0

Pros

Honestly, it's easier to list the one thing I don't like than the multitude of things I do. When they took away the advertising in the free version I decided to give Opera a try, and switched over from Mozilla Firefox. I haven't looked back since.

Cons

My only regret is that there is still not 100% compatibility with this browser and all of the websites. Several times when I've tried to download and print a coupon, for example, I've been unable to do it using Opera and have had to use Firefox. This is not the fault of Opera, I'm fairly certain though, but rather of the webmasters at those sites. And even given this minor inconvenience Opera is my default browser.
