    ""ALL GOOD THINGS COME TO AN END" ..OPERA IS BAD,AVOID"

    November 21, 2013  |   By falls1

    Version: Opera 9.51

    Pros

    an alternative to IE,Firefox,others.

    Cons

    no longer a better alternative to IE,Firefox,others.

    some, not many websites ,software do not support opera [tolerable]

    dont going asking for help with Opera in opera forums

    Summary

    10 year veteran of Opera..but that saying "ALL GOOD THINGS COME TO AN END" has occurred with the Opera browser.

    before i even thought of doing this review, i spent my time explaining in an Opera forum posting, what the issues were , seeing if i could get some advice.. i strongly said i am staying with Opera but having trouble with a website and the Opera screen.
    again, i was going to stay with Opera, having been with Opera for 10 years. I considered myself a devoted user of Opera.
    In the Opera forum, i was immediately ganged up on by 7-15 posters.
    I go back to the Opera forum today to explain further and found my account deliberately disabled, violated TOS. I did nothing wrong.

    The Opera forum has a place to dispute forums TOS violations, i go to that site, the site says to log in. i cant! my log in was disabled!

    Now like the Other posters said, Opera changed their browser drastically and its agonizing.
    For an example, There use to be a preferences section that was easy and friendly to use, they changed that.

    Note to website owners: just because you add a zillion fancy options...it does not mean your website is better!

    one star was too harsh,
    I would edit if it was possible to 2 stars, maybe 3

    "Better than IE and Firefox XD"

    August 20, 2008  |   By Julius Alonzo Abalayan

    Version: Opera 9.51

    Pros

    It is better than IE because its faster and can be customized. Firefox is also great but it usually reports errors more often than Opera. Opera a the best browser ever! :))

    Cons

    Well the most disappointing about Opera is that it is incapable of installing add-ons. Add-ons are very much important in your security and the like e.g. Mcafee site advisor

    "Yahoo! Mail Beta not supported at this time"

    August 19, 2008  |   By because_789

    Version: Opera 9.51

    Pros

    Neat interface, good speed. I like the Speed Dial Tab function.

    Cons

    Yahoo! Mail Beta is not supported at this time which is something that I use often. Other than this, Opera seems pretty cool. Did not use it very much because of the Yahoo! issue.

    "Best browser by far"

    August 18, 2008  |   By firehart

    Version: Opera 9.51

    Pros

    Opera is just the greatest - if you're a fan of efficency, ease of use, great protection, and awesome features then Opera is for you.

    Cons

    Because Microsoft still reigns in browsing usage, some sites are incompatable with Opera - usually professional or school related sites that require lots of plug ins to run.

    Summary

    Use it, and love it. Really is the best browser across the board to both IE7 (is that even a competetor) and even Mozilla. Everything is built in so you don't have to be installing a ton of aps like Mozilla and nothing beats mouse gestures - they really make internet browsing like skating on butter.

    "Version 9.5 is not ready for public distribution"

    August 13, 2008  |   By republican6

    Version: Opera 9.51

    Cons

    Anyone contemplating trying or upgrading to 9.5 should read the posts on the Opera bulletin board my.opera.com/community/forums/forum.dml?id=26 and be aware of the problems that other people had encountered with 9.5.

    They should be aware that Opera censors its forum and removes critical posts.

    "It's nice but..."

    August 11, 2008  |   By furnilover21

    Version: Opera 9.51

    Pros

    It's a nice and clean browser.

    Cons

    The use of the Internet Explorer Engine and the "Click to Activate Control" really bug me. It takes up almost as much resources as the new Firefox 3 as well (Especially when viewing flash toons.)

    Opera still has issues displaying certain stylesheet styles as well (Don't know what I mean? Register at sheezyart.com, switch to the classic style for browsing pages, and a large black border near the top of the page will be there. Firefox doesn't show that.)

    "The best"

    August 7, 2008  |   By carltornell

    Version: Opera 9.51

    Pros

    Opera is the fastest browser, not only because it is the fastest browser, but because it has additional features that enables you to browse faster. It features such things as a password wand, a panel for notes, which is very useful for quickly noting down things or for copying and pasting between different applications, and a quick starter.

    I have used Opera as my prime browser for several years and nothing comes even close to it. Today, I use Firefox as second but it is not at all as good as Opera.

    Cons

    It does not work seamlessly with Google applications, but I believe this is done on purpose by Google because they have business interests in Firefox (alarming monopolistic behaviour). Also, some banks do not work well with Opera because their webmasters are too lazy to make their sites work with anything but IE.
