1. Opera 34 is fast. Subjective sense is it significantly outperforms Chrome 47. I use Chrome only rarely and when I do, it feels like a 1965 Buick. Opera has surprised me.
2. Easy. The bookmarks work fine. Opera 34 imported my existing from Chrome
3. No integrated email. Yes, this is a "pro". While it's a seduction to have opera mail integrated like the old days, that program carried extra baggage. So the fleetness of Opera 34 sans mail is great. I use Airmail and Mailmate anyway
Like you, I am dissatisfied with reviews failing to list at least one "con." I'm trying but so far have found none.
Opera 34 is sweet now. I've made it my default browser. I anticipated Opera would fail to open sites (I use some highly technical ones), but nope...Opera flies through them. Wondering why I am keeping Chrome around. It always wants me to "log in" so the NSA, I mean nosey Chrome, can keep tabs on where I am and what I'm doing. Opera...I love you. You even have a tab compendium on the right-had side.
Good at browsing
Slow startup, horrible bookmark mgr,
Wish I could use it more, but the bookmarking mess leaves me cold.
Why didn't they setup bookmarking as 90% of other browsers have ?
Very underrated browser.
Nothing really. It should be better known
It worked really well until the last update. Do not open some webpages, it crashes and produce error when it worked really ok before the update 25.0.1614.50

Hey Siriuscanid, cheers for the feedback :) sorry to hear you had some issues. We've had some updates since so would love to hear what you think and to check the 'error' problems have been resolved for you. Thanks /Ruth@Opera
When it works, it's pretty fast
Completely UNSTABLE! Worked pretty well until the newest update, now it can't open pages, or they are partially open, or they open, then close, even their own Preference & Plug-In pages!
I've wasted the last hour trying to get it to just open pages & windows or to keep them open, without crashing constantly. I wish I could just go back to the previous version. There's no excuse for companies to release "Updates" that end up tanking the whole program!
Get it together Opera developers BEFORE you unleash updates on us.....
It does allow me to log in on aarp's web site and will actually let me play games. Safari has problems with even finding aarp.org. Or when it does and I try to log in, it loses the server again. Firefox will find the site; but, won't complete the logging in process. So, Opera is really good for allowing me to log in to aarp.
My favorite search engine is ask.com. Opera will allow me to add ask.com to the list of search engines; but, it won't let me move it up to be one of the defaults. Firefox has always allowed me to add search engines and make any one of them the default.
Tabs would take some getting used to. I'm used to having links open in the same window or a different window.
I prefer a bookmarks list from a drop down menu like Safari and Firefox have. It appears that Opera uses a bookmarks bar, like browsers on PCs have. I haven't actually tried to bookmark anything let.
I may hang on the Opera browser just so I can use aarp. But, I'm not likely to make it my default browser. There's still a lot that I have to learn before I can absolutely say that I like it or I don't like it.
On my imac its rendering pages faster than Safari, Chrome or Firefox. Unlike some reviews here I'm having zero problems with freezing, downloading or improper rendering. I enjoy using this.
Doesn't have a bookmark manager, which will make this a no-go for some users.
Excellent browser. Glad I gave it a try.
I had used an older version while back and remembered liking it, so when Chrome was giving me trouble I thought of Opera. Downloaded the current version here.
2/23/14 - got latest version here, couldn't import bookmarks from Chrome, the help to tell how to do this specified "File > IImport/export" but that was not in my version!
No help number or forum! Deleted this one and an older version.
Eventually settled on Torch - a lot like Chrome, but without the bugs I've been having with Chrome.
I didn't really give it a fair test, I guess.
Developer keep "updating" it, so it's assumed it's secure.
The "One-line summary" about nails it.
I should've realized that anything lauded by Seth "I get paid by the word" Rosenblatt had to suck. Camino was dropped by its developers and is no longer secure, hence I had to seek a non-Chrome (which I hate) alternative for one e-mail address. Enter Opera. It's ugly (think the worst of 90's interface combined with generic supermarket labels), it's archaic, it doesn't know how to auto-complete e-mail addresses, and to add insult to injury, it freezes, necessitating a force quit. THIS is the browser that should have been abandoned, not Camino (which, unfortunately, had been dying a slow death for a number of years). Browsing with Opera is an exercise in futility. One wishes the fat lady would sing already.
Does everything other browsers do, BUT better.
Unfortunately it is not recognized by many app downloaders
If it was accepted more it would give Chrome/Firefox a run for the money. A great browser.
