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 mouse-over preview, a search bar, advanced bookmarking tools, 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 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 combines autofill with saved passwords. We really like the addition of torrent support and real-time fraud protection for safer browsing.

A new feature in version 9.2, Speed Dial, permanently assigns bookmarks and tabs any digit from one through nine. When you enter one of those numbers into the URL bar, the corresponding site loads when you hit enter. 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.

    "It is fast and okay but not as good as older versions"

    June 26, 2014   |   By musicman4you

    Version: Opera 22.0.1471.70


    It is fast


    Opera 12.16 and 12.17 was great and then they started to use the Chromium engine.Bookmarks and other features have been stripped down from the great old Opera everybody loved.Im now using mostly Pale Moon and the Opera 12.17 version but don't know if it is secure or not.Seems like this new version is made more for mobile and touch screen users.


    I use to recommend Opera but not this stripped down version that is fast.The best Browser I can find now and would recommend to anybody is Pale Moon.
