Editors' Review

+

The premise of Opera has always been the same--develop the fastest, smallest, and most full-featured browser available--and the latest version maintains the tradition. Opera has all the basics covered, including tabbed browsing with an added functionality that lets you hover over a tab to preview a page; a search bar with Google and several other popular portals; advanced bookmarking tools, including one that lets you easily import from any popular browser; and simple integration with your favorite e-mail and chat clients. Mouse-gesture support, keyboard shortcuts, and drag-and-drop functionality further enhance your surfing experience.

With solid basics, Opera's extra features push it to the top of the class. Integrated theme support lets you preview and download themes from within the interface so you know what you're getting before you download. Widgets (akin to Mac OS X dashboard applications) are small, useful programs that appear in a window from any app while Opera is running. The Wand utility helps you autofill online forms and lets you securely save passwords for multiple sites. We really like the addition of BitTorrent support, letting you drop a Torrent link into the address bar and begin a file transfer immediately without the need for an extra app. New in version 9.1, added fraud protection provides another layer of security by identifying fake sites in realtime--a welcome addition for safer browsing. Overall, we think Opera might have what it takes to unseat even the biggest-name browsers if users give it the opportunity. Opera is a must-download for those looking for a full-featured browser with added extras.

Pros

none at all, none at all

Can't even set my own HOME page with this junk browser. Interface looks similar to WIN 8 crap so may be same team was involved in its design. And is so slow when compared ro Firefox.

"i lost interest - was once great, now only ok"

October 16, 2014  |  By ChoiceVoice

 |  Version: Opera 25.0.1614.50

Pros

-works, but so does its competition.
-extensions
-a google chrome clone (without chrome spying and system take over ... i hate that chrome wants to start with system, slowing down startup).

Cons

-a google chrome clone (without sandbox tech).
-an hostile forum filled with opera-fanatical-fools that insults anyone.
-updater doesn't work with some browser sandbox programs (they break updater so you can not update ... same happens with google chrome, so must be a webkit thing).
-extensions may not shut off with opera program.
-bookmarks etc sucky.

Summary

yes, i know it uses blink, a fork of webkit:/

why use this over google chrome??? not sure. i found i can control chrome by using portable inside liberkey. liberkey updates for me and chrome behaves. don't really need opera then. plus, firefox is sweet.
