    "Was good once, now it's GARBAGE!!!"

    December 4, 2014  |   By Redflava

    Version: Opera 26.0.1656.32

    Pros

    This was once one of the best browsers I had ever used.

    Cons

    It's horrible now! Removed Bing Search, and took away our right to choose! No simple way to export bookmarks...just to name a few. I am completely done with this browser. I am going to uninstall this look for a new browser. It's unfortunate, because I have been using Opera for years.

    "Piece of crap"

    October 31, 2014  |   By rgroberts9612

    Version: Opera 25.0.1614.68

    Pros

    None. Nope. Nada.

    Cons

    Causes some facebook applications to crash. Clears pass words when you clear browser history. Has no color palette so not possible to change the color of visited pages. The color THEY chose is almost the same hue as unvisited pages. That new pop up in the upper right corner is not only not wanted, it is also extremely annoying.

    Summary

    What Opera has done is to create a very compelling advertisement for Mozilla. I used to swear by Opera. No longer. They have created one of the most user unfriendly browsers I have ever run across. And to top it off, they are throwing google in your face. If it were possible I would give this iteration of Opera NO stars.

    Updated on Nov 4, 2014

    After further investigation it is even worse than I originally reported. Every new link opens another opera browser. Does it go away when you close the link? NO. It stays there eating up memory. Is there a way to fix this with settings? Hard to tell since the menus offer little in the way of help. I suspect that trying to change the settings will be an exercise in futility. I tried changing the search engine from google to bing. google is still there. Nothing quite like taking a good thing and improving it straight into the ground. opera, you suck.

    "nothing to be liked"

    October 16, 2014  |   By pnyli

    Version: Opera 25.0.1614.50

    Pros

    none at all, none at all

    Cons

    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.

    "DEAD BOOKMARK AND SYNC SYSTEM"

    October 12, 2014  |   By rickyaz4

    Version: Opera 24.0.1558.64

    Pros

    - Pretty fast
    - Renders pages well

    Cons

    - WHERE DID THE BOOKMARK MENU SYSTEM GO?
    - NO MOBILE BOOKMARK SYNC
    - You can save sites in the "stash" but they're all thrown together.
    - Non existent support
    - Support forums are worthless when it comes to this issue, they'll just shut down your post.

    Why would you bother releasing a browser that lacks a bookmark menu system and no sync with mobile?!

    EVEN INTERNET EXPLORER AS AN ORGANIZED BOOKMARKING SYSTEM!!

    Summary

    Move foward with your browser, NOT BACKWARDS!

    Updated on Oct 12, 2014

    This browser does have potential. If cnet would let me update my review, I would update it to a 3 because if renders pages very well and interface looks great. Now to be fair Internet Explorer doesn't sync either.

    "Need more Improvement"

    October 10, 2014  |   By Sigmund_6th

    Version: Opera 24.0.1558.64

    Pros

    Beautiful display and Interface

    Cons

    1. No Bookmark
    2. Poor synchronize Function
    3. A little extension

    Summary

    I think Bookmark is important . If Opera can synchronize Bookmark from Google or Google Chrome. It will perfect browser

    "I think Opera has even given up"

    October 6, 2014  |   By bmallek540

    Version: Opera 24.0.1558.64

    Pros

    Does work a lot of the time

    Cons

    Doesn't load pages, slow, memory hog.

    Summary

    The past couple of ratings for Opera haven't been so good and there's a good reason. Since Opera must be aware that their browser is (to say the least) sub-par and not corrected it, it would seem like Opera has given up also. It has gotten so bad that I removed Opera from my system. I may check back in a few months but as it stands now, Opera is miserable.
