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.

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.
