Opera

CNET Editors' review

Opera 10 maintains the program's tradition of striving to be the fastest, smallest, and most full-featured browser available. In this latest iteration, Opera replaced its JavaScript engine, remade the interface for Windows 7, and developed features that have solidified the company's position as an innovator.

Opera 10.60 is a minor update to Opera 10.50, which introduced multiple new features. The biggest is one most users won't see: Opera's in-house anti-malware has been bolstered by AVG's real-time threat detection network. The browser uses it to force users to see a warning page when they try to load sites that the network determines are in some way malicious. Version 10.60 adds more HTML5 support, including the next-generation video and audio codec WebM, geolocation compatibility, Web Workers, and App Cache. More importantly, Opera 10.60 claims benchmark times that are 50 percent faster than Opera 10.50. Internal CNET testing revealed that this number was closer to 33 percent, but that's still a major improvement.

The big news in Opera 10.50 was the new JavaScript engine, Carakan, that made Opera arguably the fastest browser around. It also debuted full compatibility with Windows 7, which includes Aero Peek, jump lists, and a design redo that emphasizes Aero's translucent window frames. Longtime Opera fans will notice that its menu bar has been hidden and replaced by a drop-down menu that compresses the options into a tree format. It has also highlighted the Closed Tabs box with a prominent tab bar icon styled on the Windows Recycle Bin, and its widgets have gained the capability to live on the desktop, separate from the browser. Opera has also introduced HTML5 video support in v10.50.

Opera is known for coming with an incredible number of features out of the box. It's the basics such as tabbed browsing and tab previews, a customizable search bar, advanced bookmarking tools, and native e-mail and chat client options. But it also has mouse-gesture support, keyboard shortcuts, password management, anti-malware protection from Haute Secure, and drag-and-drop functionality. Its more-exciting options include Opera Link for synchronizing bookmarks, your personal bar, Speed Dial, and Notes via My Opera. Opera Unite expands My Opera by letting you create an Opera-hosted Web server to share files and stream media. For users on slower connections, the toggleable Opera Turbo compression engine feeds sites through Opera's own servers for faster load times.

Opera undoubtedly has what it takes to unseat even the biggest-name browsers. You just need to hear it sing.

    "Faster than a speedin WoW"

    December 5, 2010  |   By rbnpar

    Version: Opera 10.63

    Pros

    Its easy to use not too cluttered and really fast.

    Cons

    Could use some work.... some under the hood issues to squash.

    Summary

    Ease of use good! intuitive good! speed excellent!! just needs to have user options and security features closer to the surface of the interface.Consensus of the placement of program options should be given more concideration by prograMERS of this and other interfaces we know where we hung our keys so why move them?

    "Oh dear what rubbish"

    November 28, 2010  |   By jaytee28

    Version: Opera 10.63

    Pros

    Looks nice

    Cons

    How long have you got?

    Summary

    People wonder why Opera languishes so low in usage? Because it is SO stunningly un-user friendly, maybe, with help sections that are out of date with the latest release?. I really wanted to love Opera because it is so fast. But it gets so many basics so very wrong (like the bookmarks disaster) sadly I have to say it deserves to remain in the margins. What a mess.
