Editors' Review

Opera 10 maintains the program's tradition of striving for the fastest, smallest, and most full-featured browser available. Opera covers the basics with tabbed browsing, mouse-over previews, a customizable search bar, advanced bookmarking tools, and simple integration with e-mail and chat clients. Mouse-gesture support, keyboard shortcuts, and drag-and-drop functionality round out the essentials.

Opera's extras push it to among the top of the class. Integrated theme support previews themes from within the interface, and the new version sports a look that's an attractive balance between "dark" and "light" themes. Opera's desktop widgets can appear anywhere while Opera is running. The Password Manager utility (previously known as the Wand) combines autofill with saved passwords, and it's hard to ignore the addition of torrent support and real-time fraud protection. Opera also includes reasonable antimalware protection courtesy of Haute Secure.

There are other features that should make any nonbeliever do a double take. Opera Link enables Bookmarks, the Personal bar, Speed Dial, and Notes synchronization across all other Opera instances. Quick Find has improved the search tool, allowing for full text searching from the address field, the history panel, and opera:historysearch. We're also fans of the new inline spell checker that supports 51 languages.

Opera 10 expands on these features with Opera Turbo, a compression engine that Opera claims can compress data up to 80 percent before squeezing it through Opera's servers. The optional Turbo mode is intended to help computers with slow data connections perform faster. There's also the new tab bar: double-click or pull down on the bar below the tabs and above the location bar and you get thumbnail previews of each tab. It has also finally received an autoupdater and integrated crash reporting. Opera undoubtedly has what it takes to unseat even the biggest-name browsers. You just need to hear it sing.

"Where Have You Been My Whole Life!!!"

August 25, 2009  |  By what_a_drag237

 |  Version: Opera 9.64

Pros

MAIL!!! & everything else...

Cons

cant cure cancer or aids; doesnt bring world peace and will not stop world hunger & couldnt stop bush from becoming the president a second time...

Summary

Is there anything not to like, its lightning fast compare to any thing else, & i have used them all, from netscape to the latest firefox, crome, ie8, safari and let me tell u, those guys dont even compare...seriousl...its not just a browser, it keeps my mails for multiple email accounts in the same page and my rss...the widgets are awsome...but i have to say the mail intergration is my favorite...now i dont have to run two softweres for internet and mail, it also has notifications for when you get mail and rss thats not to flashy but also subtle...these guys got everything right.

Excellent and fits for daily browsing and doing work... for sites which are not supported can always use firefox or ie..

"EXCELLENT! from warlover2(warlover,perhaps?Both!)"

August 18, 2009  |  By warlover2

 |  Version: Opera 9.64

Pros

INCREDIBLY FAST. Only Safari is a match. Not even Google Chrome touches Opera 9.64 in the speed department. I am pleasantly shocked! It is one of the most secure browsers as well. DOWNLOAD OPERA 9.64, NOW! Pretty good form and login filler.

Cons

VERY limited customization.

Summary

If you can live without excessive add-ons(I have Firefox 3.5.2; I know about add-ons!) and are simply interested in good, inbuilt security with UNREAL, VERY fast, possibly the fastest page loading speeds ever, then Opera 9.64 is definitely for you. Downloading speeds are about even with Firefox 3.5.2.Spybot and Iobit Advanced Systemcare both protect Opera from bad websites and tracking cookies, especially tracking cookies. Opera imports plugins like Realplayer, Genuine Advantage, Java, Shockwave, Silverlight, Adobe Acrobat etc. from Firefox, Netscape Navigator(WHY did AOL discontinue Netscape? It was Firefox with a good interface!), and/or Internet Explorer. Bookmarks as well. GET OPERA...NOOOWWW!

"Needs lots of updates"

August 09, 2009  |  By skgivens

 |  Version: Opera 9.64

Pros

I really liked the speed dial option, and the interface was really easy to read and very modern and beautiful.

Cons

No toolbars...no Google, no Yahoo, and several other features were missing. This browser really needs lots of updates.

Summary

If this browser is ever updated to include all features of IE and Mozilla, like the toolbars, etc., this will be the way to go. It is a solid browser with one incredible feature that no other browser has...speed dial. This is an amazing feature, and if the updates are ever completed, people will be standing in line to get this browser.
