Editor's Choice: Opera 87.0.4390.36

Although Opera is not as popular as some other browsers, it has a range of features that make it stand out from the crowd. It of course as everything you have come to expect from a browser, such as tabs and bookmarks, but also offers previews of the opened tabs just by hovering over them. It also offers a “speed dial” feature, thumbnails on newly opened tabs of the websites the user visits the most. One aspect that every user will really appreciate is its speed. Another great feature of Opera is the fact that the search box and the navigation box are one and the same. So you can either type the address or a search term and you get there either way.

However, perhaps Opera’s greatest strength lies on how it is capable of being used on a range of devices and operating systems. It can just as easily be used on a Smartphone, tablet, smart TV or set-top box, as it can on a desktop or laptop. And as the icing on the cake Opera automatically syncs all of those devices, allowing you to move easily from one to the other without any loss of functionality. Such great features, mean that Opera is really worth a try.

Independent internet browser focusing on speed and reliability

Compatible with Microsoft Windows, OS X, and Linux in PC, Opera is currently the 5th most popular worldwide desktop web browser. Its popularity is not only because of the number of supporting operating systems, but also because it can be used to browse Smartphones, tablets and internet connected TVs and even set-top boxes. One of the many benefits of Opera’s ability to work over multiple devices and systems is that it can automatically sync different types of information between the users’ compatible devices . This includes the likes of importing bookmarks, open tabs and browsing history.
Opera is one of the fastest browsers available and features a special speed dial feature that allows the users most regularly visited webpages to appear as thumbnails on each newly opened tab. As well as this fantastic feature Opera includes numerous features that users expect in any web browser; this includes tabbed browsing, a bookmarks bar and page zooming (to aid people with impaired vision). Opera offers other tab-specific advantages including being capable of easily re-opening any recently closed tabs and previews of currently open tabs by the user hovering over the tab.
Opera is no slouch when it comes to default security features. Private data including HTTP cookies, browsing history, passwords etc. can be easily deleted by users; a vital tool when accessing the internet on a shared computer such as in an internet café or library. The users everyday browsing is also secured by the inclusion of a security badge, visible in the address bar. This provides instant information on each site that the user visits and checks each website against a list of sites that are blacklisted for malware and phishing threats. Once warned the user can choose what to do with the information.

Astro Says:

  • Provides more privacy than Google Chrome
  • Keeps browsing activities private
  • Turbo mode loads pages very quickly
  • Few extensions for improving browsing experience
  • Not worth switching to from Chrome
