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.

"its the best internet browser to have"

November 20, 2009  |  By jnrwnpinoy

 |  Version: Opera 10.01

Pros

When you install opera 10.01, you do not need to install so many add- ons to compensate for other browser's lack of functionality.

1. the speed dial is included
2. mouse gestures are very useful
3. opera's security is superior to others

Cons

What this browser lacks is advertisement so that people will know that a wonderful browser is available!

Summary

Very nice software.
It can also save and open *.mht files.

Updated on Nov 20, 2009

Moreover, it includes a bittorrent client which newbies can download torrent files if they are still having a learning curve in using utorrent or bittorent.

Moreover, as you install add- on softwares in Chrome and Firefox (to compensate for their lack of functionality), you increases your chances of spyware installation (some add-on softwares are legitimate but they track your internet habits)

"Light, fast but incomplete"

November 13, 2009  |  By liveinNH

 |  Version: Opera 10.01

Pros

Small footprint, loads up fast, loads pages quickly, clean interface

Cons

does not work on some sites, incomplete functionality makes it hard to use

Summary

I guess there is a reason that Firefox and IE 8 use more RAM and take more time to load up. Overall, not a viable day to day browser.

"Delightful!"

November 10, 2009  |  By kresnik86

 |  Version: Opera 10.01

Pros

Password manager, pleasant skins, Turbo when BTing XD, very lite and fast. Loading java based games and flash actually have been faster than chrome in my experience.

Cons

Every now and then something java or flash based may not function 100%.

Summary

I love this browser. If not for the functionality of Seamonkey it would be my top pick. It's fast, lite and has more tools on a fresh install than others. I find Turbo to be useful when BTing large files. Previewing the skins within the browser without loading another page is a definite plus that I noticed in Avant as well. I haven't really played with unite yet.
