    "Opera Started Off Good, Then It Went Haywire"

    June 30, 2010  |   By Several9920

    Version: Opera 10.53

    Pros

    Was great at first

    Cons

    Opera sucks now, I'm not exactly sure what the cause is, But i am done.

    Summary

    Opera started off being a perfect browser, I mean i liked it better than firefox at one time. But within the last 8 months things just went haywire with Opera, most websites wouldn't load. The last straw for me was when i couldn't even check my own email, That internal error message was a menace to internet society.

    "Bug infested Opera 10.53"

    June 19, 2010  |   By yohannz

    Version: Opera 10.53

    Pros

    Lightning fast probably the fastest browser i ever tested, aero skin customized, nice widgets.

    Cons

    open/next tab bug! it open the homepage instead of the web page you browse and this is kinda annoying and inconvenient, resource hog, it sometimes consume too much memory load. double opera.exe running on the system. website incompatibilty. etc.

    Summary

    Just avoid opera 10.53 at this moment too many bugs to fix though. wait for the next version, maybe it will be more stable.

    "Great GUI with solid performance and great features!"

    June 18, 2010  |   By SmartNoob

    Version: Opera 10.53

    Pros

    Opera Unite is a cool twist on the ability to extend your browser. Solid performance, especially with JavaScript. Support for HTML5. Widgets are cool and fun to play with.

    Cons

    Does not support ad-block extension as Firefox and Chrome do because of no extension support. Well, not the same type of add-on support anyway.

    Summary

    Amazing browser. To put it simply, it just works and does not get in your way like IE and FF can sometimes. The overall performance is amazing. It is a great browser for power users and the not so tech-savvy. If you want a browser that does basically as much or as little as you want it to do, this is your browser.

    "stick with 10.01 or 10.10 or 10.20"

    June 16, 2010  |   By g4qber

    Version: Opera 10.53

    Pros

    wider speeddial previews
    faster rendering of pages

    Cons

    got to http://my.opera.com/g4qb/blog/
    a) freeze on all platforms OSX, PC, Linux
    b) 120% zoom on cnet causes some text to freeeze
    c) large gap between tiled tab windows
    d) space bug - look for the space character
    e) slower to close tabs

    Summary

    stick with 10.01 if you don't need opera unite
    10.01 has unite
    10.20 alpha was the last of the speed breed

    "Love it, but still lacks compatibility"

    June 13, 2010  |   By WaArSe

    Version: Opera 10.53

    Pros

    It's great: fast, reliable, and looks nice. The visual desing is clean and neat.

    Cons

    Don't gets well to several important -to me- sites.The new menu design hides a little some things I'm used to have more handy.

    Summary

    Still canĀ“t be my only browser because several (4-5) of my usual sites don't look fine, or even just don't look on Opera. Wouldn' be a problem if those weren't my bank's and some of my job's intranet sites.

    "Opera is for conscious surfers."

    June 13, 2010  |   By SwedStar

    Version: Opera 10.53

    Pros

    Almost everything.

    Cons

    too few to mention ... (Sinatra) :-)

    Summary

    To those of you moaners who come and talk about, Chrome, Firefox, IE, etc.
    You have to understand that these browsers are not in the same high division as Opera.

    Opera is simply the most customizable browser available; you can set exactly the buttons you want to appear on your toolbar, apply user CSS and JS files to certain sites, and set custom searches and site-specific behaviors

    Without going into menus you can easily access:
    "Fit to Width" (screen)
    "Turbo mode" (for extra fast surfing)
    "Do not load images" (super-fast surfing)
    "Remove background) (helpful on dark backgrounds with e.g. red text))
    ?Clicking to block single elements? (remove annoying ads)

    By pressing F12 in Opera you access this features:
    ?Open All Pop-Ups?
    ?Open Pop-ups in Bad ground?
    ?Block Unwanted Pop-Ups?
    ?Block All Pop-Ups?
    ---
    ?E/d Images Animated Images? (E/d = Enable/disable)
    ?E/d Sound in Web Pages?
    ?E/d Java?
    ?E/d Plug-Ins?
    ?E/d JavaScript?
    ?E/d Opera Turbo?
    ---
    ?E/d Cookies?
    ?Send Referrer Information?
    ?E/d Proxy Servers?
    ---
    ?Edit Site Preferences...?

    Overall: Opera is by far, the best browser.

    "Perfect browser"

    June 12, 2010  |   By d-boyz

    Version: Opera 10.53

    Pros

    Quick, efficient and stable

    Cons

    Need additional plug-in to made it, like Adobe flash player and Java

    Summary

    Most of people who bash opera is too lazy for download additional plug-in or their computer already overcapacity, i already tried in games on-line which often complained but find no problem as long as Adobe flash player and Java already installed on computer.

    "Poor non-standard design"

    June 10, 2010  |   By spartain

    Version: Opera 10.53

    Pros

    Pretty fast and snappy - and quicker than Firefox.

    Cons

    Its non-standard design is a real pain. There is no top menu and the user is required to figure out where everything is, including the setting up.

    Summary

    There really should be a top menu. It's a real shame that this fast browser has been let down by idiot developers who's misplaced geek egos has led then to producing this awful layout. I wanted to check the version number - but no Help drop-down, because there's no top menu. I wanted to set the home page, but I couldn't because there's no top menu. Complete idiots. About to uninstall this crap now and try Avant.
