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.

"You gotta love it!"

March 31, 2015  |  By dexteriot

 |  Version: Opera 28.0.1750.48

Pros

Im a programmer and Im a long time Firefox and Chrome user. I tried Opera in the past but because it didnt have a feature where you could clear browsing history on exit I havent used it much. Recently I decided to try it again because FF was slow and wouldn't work well with videos. I was absolutely surprised to find new and improved Opera! The speed dial works well, I love the Discover feature. It is fast, works well with videos and other media. It still lacks clear history on exit feature, thats why I still use FF and Chrome, but I really, really like it!

Cons

No 'clear browsing history on exit' option.

Summary

Love it!

"One step away from MALWARE"

March 20, 2015  |  By tuliphead

 |  Version: Opera 28.0.1750.48

Pros

minimal interface, if that rocks your boat

Cons

- minimal interface, everything required is hidden or simply does not exist - no menus, no update option, most preferences either hidden or missing
- Does not uninstall - had multiple versions of this CRAP on my computer going all the way back to version 10. I had foolishly assumed that each new version replaced the previous one. Also when tried to uninstall ALL versions it flat out refused to allow me to do so. Finally had to resort to RevoUninstaller to get rid of this heap of *****.
- Hogs resources like none of the other browsers. Occassionally crashes computer when opening multiple pages which no other browser does.

Summary

Dangerous resource hogging piece of MALWARE *****.

"Home Button"

March 15, 2015

 |  Version: Opera 28.0.1750.40

Pros

better and faster than chrome and firefox.

Cons

No home button and can't set up a home page only can set up a start page(which I don't need) and when i import bookmarks from HTML file I need to open folders after folders after folders just to get to my bookmarks just like firefox and the menu button on the top left kind like firefox menu too, it's really really bad.

Summary

so back to using chrome, at lest chrome is better and faster than firefox

"I don't like the current revision of OP!"

February 22, 2015  |  By GCG1000

Pros

Nothing I can't get from Chrome!

Cons

It's a mess!

Summary

Sadly, they gave up on Marlin and M2! Marlin was one of the safest rendering engines ever conceived! Chrome Browser 64 bit in NOW my browser of choice. OP missed the boat! Marlin was fast, secure and superb!

"Switched to Opera from Chrome and FF"

February 11, 2015

 |  Version: Opera 27.0.1689.66

Pros

1. Wicked fast - from my browsing experience, Opera is easily the fastest browser compared to FF and Chrome.
2. Speed dial - I use it most of the time.
3. Unique - It has a unique interface which is simple and efficient.
4. Inherent news feed - self explanatory.
5. Bookmark management - earlier, Opera did NOT support bookmark import from either files or other browsers. Gladly, they fixed this issue.
6. Rocker gestures - takes some time getting used to, but you'll eventually love it.

Cons

1. Google search bar above the speed-dial icons ruins the browser's look, but you can choose to remove it dev. mode.

Summary

I found that this browser caters to all of my needs - it's fast, neat and has a news feed. I guess Opera's done a great job here and is back to its innovative standards.

"Was good once, now it's GARBAGE!!!"

December 04, 2014  |  By Redflava

 |  Version: Opera 26.0.1656.32

Pros

This was once one of the best browsers I had ever used.

Cons

It's horrible now! Removed Bing Search, and took away our right to choose! No simple way to export bookmarks...just to name a few. I am completely done with this browser. I am going to uninstall this look for a new browser. It's unfortunate, because I have been using Opera for years.
