With its long history, Opera for Mac stands as one of the most popular Web browsers in the world. Despite its age, this free product has been constantly updated and optimized to run smoothly and keep feature parity with the rest of the competition. What set the app apart from other browsers are the handy mouse gestures, the Off Road mode that uses less traffic, and the handy news aggregator.

When opened, Opera for Mac presents you with its Speed Dial interface where you can pin your most used sites, set the number of columns, and group sites in folders. While browsing, you have the ability to send sites to the Speed Dial as well as the Stash via an address bar button. The Stash is the app's version of a reading list -- it saves articles for offline viewing and can be accessed in a new tab. Two nice features are the Off Road mode, which compresses the data you receive, saving traffic but reducing security, and mouse gestures for effortless browsing. The app supports plenty of themes and extensions that are available online for free. By registering for a free Opera account, you can sync browser settings across devices.

If you're looking for a fast and reliable browser, you won't be disappointed by Opera for Mac. It stands out when it comes to data compression and gesture support, as well as content discovery. You'll especially like the Discover section, available in new tabs, which lets you browse stories by subject and location, making your browsing experience more enjoyable.
