    "Even better."

    September 19, 2014  |   By kendawson

    Version: Opera 24.0.1558.61

    Pros

    When I first tried the new Webkit version some time ago, I was terribly disappointed at the apparent lack of user control over things and reverted immediately to Opera 12.17. Perhaps I didn't spend enough time exploring it, I don't know, but I have now installed the latest version 24.0.1558.61 and have found everything that I liked about v.12.17 and more, including an even better speed-dial, stash and the ability to delete browsing history and individual cookies while browsing. We've still got the mouse gestures, keyboard shortcuts and there are plenty of useful extensions to add on.

    Contrary to what some people are saying, it does import bookmarks. I found the bookmark import icon on the speed-dial page and it will import into bookmarks or speed-dial.

    Cons

    The only thing I'm missing is the Notes facility which I found really useful.

    Summary

    I didn't think version 12.17 could be improved but I was wrong. I think Opera have stopped supporting it now so to all you 12.17 lovers, I can recommend installing this latest version. It's very polished and fast.

    "24 Still no better than Ver. 23"

    September 2, 2014  |   By bmallek540

    Version: Opera 24.0.1558.53

    Pros

    Works sometimes

    Cons

    Pages don't load, memory hog, slow, etc.

    Summary

    The "cons" don't always happen but they are unpredictable and really are a nuisance when they happen. This version is still not stable

    "Browser on the rise!"

    August 28, 2014  |   By tdaso

    Version: Opera 23.0.1522.77

    Pros

    Speed, Speed-dial, Stash, Clean interface

    Cons

    Some customization issues.

    Summary

    What started as a bare-bones browser has evolved into an elegant and very promising browser. Development is exponential from version to version. Now it has an innovative bookmarks manager (Opera developer), the absolute best speed-dial, many extensions and an even better interface. The browser is evolving into something special and different than Chrome clones.

    "Opera 23 is for the BIRDS!!"

    July 26, 2014  |   By fredg06

    Version: Opera 23.0.1522.60

    Pros

    None that I can find.

    Cons

    NO MENU bar, and no other bars either.

    Summary

    I use Windows XP with Internet Explorer 8. Tried Firefox 26, and it works sometimes. It crashes, slows down after about 10 minutes, and just quits! But, Firefox is much faster than IE8, when it works.
    Now, I have found Opera 12 at oldapps.com.
    Opera 12 has a Menu bar, and it very, very easy to use, and fast; plain and simple.
    Any version after 12, is a copy of Google Chrome, and even Google email doesn't look right with Version 12....but I can live with it. Google has dominated Chrome, and any other Browser is not supported very well. ....way to go Google, keep up the selfish work.
    I will stick with Opera 12, with a Menu Bar, and other nice applications.

    "excellent browser"

    July 14, 2014  |   By salesalex

    Version: Opera 22.0.1471.70

    Pros

    renders web pages very fast and with good quality , it is also very customizable and has nice add ons .

    Cons

    the only 'cons' I find is a millimetre of blank space on the top of the page which makes fast switching between the pages a bit annoying
