opera was sold to Chinese few years ago. Don't put sensitive data to this browser. They paid 600 million so they want profit... Just think

Can you clarify that with a link or public statement of the company itself? A pure statement doesn't say anything :\ - still though it's helpful. It's (sadly) not the first time I heard of this…

To be clear this is a good browser.

Pros:

  • Black UI theme
  • Good Dial Panel where you can easily add sites what you wish
  • The picture in Picture out the box
  • Pretty fast

Cons:

  • No full sync (add-ons, bookmarks, settings)
  • Work with bad providers which blocked in different countries because of spyware (Yandex for example)
  • They continue to grow their own opera extension market, which is a super bad idea, all add-ons very old there.

Use it on your own risk.

Opera is Undead: Long Live Vivaldi!

about Opera and Vivaldi · · Helpful Not helpful 3 Helpful Report as spam

After using Presto Opera since version 8.5, I was horrified by the lobotomised version of Opera presented in v15. I agreed completely with the need for a change of engine but Opera's new direction threw out most of what made the Presto version a true classic and a joy to use. Two years later and it STILL feels like it barely compares to version 8 of Opera Classic, let alone version 12.

It's a freakish abomination that abandoned its core user-base, along with all the beloved community features and mail, in favour of some nebulous idea about "popularity". (something that seems not to have worked at all, based on these results: http://clicky.com/marketshare/global/web-browsers/ )

I've stuck with it in the desperate hope that some glimmer of the original spirit would return...and I'm happy to report that it finally has! BUT NOT IN OPERA.

Enter: Vivaldi! (https://vivaldi.com/#Home )

Created by the original CEO of Opera, Jon Stephenson von Tetzchner, (who left the company shortly before the awful change in direction), Vivaldi simply is - in spirit - everything that Opera was, only modernised to use Blink (The feature-set will be what Opera was, but many are not yet present). The community is already back. Mail is on the way.Innovation is already present (I fully expect everyone else to start copying the Tab Colours soon, just like old times!) For me, this is the final shotgun blast to the head of the shambling zombie horror that was once an amazing browser; Opera remains Opera in name only, having long since lost its soul.

Opera browser offers the best experience out of the box

about Opera and Dolphin Browser, Yandex.Browser, Google Chrome · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful Report as spam

The interface is clean and effective. The Speed Dial is the best in class new tab page. You choose what and how many pages you want there and you can even group multiple pages with deadly simple drag and drop or bookmark all the opened tabs at once there.

Off-road is great for when your connection is bad or you're having a problem to connect to a specific website, and also saving a bit of data/money if you're accessing via a mobile network connection.

You can access all your search engines when you select and right-click text on a page.

You can easily recover any closed page from the menu, while in Chrome for example you're limited to the latest 10 closed tabs/windows.

Paste & Go anytime, simply press Ctrl + Shift + V!

Mouse gestures are included for fast browsing.

Stash and Discover can be useful to varying kinds of usage and other minor unique settings included are very good.


In addition to Speed Dial and Off-road mode, in mobile devices the navigation is faster and the bar placement at the bottom is much more comfortable for navigating and tab-switching. The option to apply text wrapping and freely zooming in instead of the worst invention of the century (a.k.a. the FontBoosting method) also strengthens my choice greatly.

You can save pages for off-line viewing which is a good bonus and now that they're implementing features like the media downloader Opera is differentiating itself from the other browsers even more.

It's also worth mentioning that while companies like Maxthon, Dolphin, etc (with the exception of Yandex), are building browsers that are merely wrappers that use the rendering engine that comes with your device's Android version, Opera is directly involved with web standards and offers the latest and greatest in this department with a more up-to-date browsing engine.

Summing up: it's the best browser and it's from a company historically committed to supporting the open web standards. My sole browser recommendation. 10/10

My favorite browser. It's almost perfect. The only thing that prevents it from being perfect for me is having to install each extension manually from the Chrome Webstore. That is just a very small issue, though. Other than that, I enjoy it. I was reminded of how good it is earlier today. I tried Firefox's new update. Opera's Turbo has spoiled me! It felt like FF was crawling very slowly. When I switched back to Opera, I noticed a huge difference in speed.

the best

i thought chrome is the best browser until i used opera i was surprised about its speed and exclusive built-in extensions like video pop out (loved it so much ) , fast free vpn , ad blocker and the ability to install and use all chrome extensions . i advise people to give it a try and i'm sure you will uninstall chrome.

Try Opera

about Opera and Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Maxthon Cloud Browser · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful Report as spam

For very slow computers (a.k.a my netbook), Opers was the best browser that work compared to Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Maxthon.
It work fast and loaded quickly in even wi-fi with low signals.
I have heard of Opera before but never had the chance to try it out. Hearing that it is losing its appeal and the browser was better then than now, I would probably have to agree.
But whether the choice appears, try Opera out.

For me, it's the fastest

about Opera and Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful Report as spam

I'm a computer technician, I've used many browsers with many types of computers, mac/pc/ and linux. Basically what it came down to is chrome, Firefox, Opera, and even Safari all ran about the same, but when I turned on the "turbo" (image compression), it ran the fastest on all my computers. The only one that that was slow was Explorer, which is built for safty more than speed.

*on linux OS, Firefox was the fastest

It was a good browser, still is a decent one, but it behaves in a unacceptable way: makes itself the default browser, creates a quick launch icon, creates a desktop icon and, of course, all of this without asking any permission. It even recreates a desktop icon when it has been deleted! That last one made me uninstall it for good.
