Opera — The Fastest Browser In The World

Opera — The Fastest Browser In The World

Opera browser is a very good piece of work. Billing itself as "The fastest browser on Earth!", it is a free browser with great number of powerful and useful features.
Opera has clean interface that is very easy to use and understand. It has everything you need to browse the internet and even more.
Opera allows you to open several Web pages in different tabs within a single window. This is called tabbed browsing. You can easily drag tabs, duplicate them and even restore closed tabs. In Opera, you can resize pages and tile them next to each other on the same workspace to compare or work with several pages. The browser has very useful preview tab feature. Just place the mouse arrow over the tab and you will see a thumbnail preview.
The behavior of tabs can be easily configured to satisfy your needs.

Standard toolbar includes six basic buttons used to navigate within a document, address field, the search field for quick searching on the Web and the «View» button to toggle the view bar.
The search bar offers you several search engines to choose from. You also can add your favorite search engines to the search bar.

The view bar allows you to find a specified word in the active Web page, and provides you quick access to voice management (if available) and features that affect the display of the page, such as shortcuts to turn off stylesheets and images, zoom and so on.
Zooming in Opera applies to the entire page at once, instead of just the text. I found this very useful.

Another great feature of Opera is the sidebar which is placed on the left of the screen space. You can toggle it by pressing F4 key or clicking on the left side of the Opera window.
This sidebar gives you quick access to different panels such as bookmarks, widgets, history, notes, transfers, links and some others. These panels make the work with Opera even easier. You can configure sidebar by adding and removing panels of your own.

Opera has highly customizable interface that allows you to personalize it by using beautiful skins, removing and adding panels and buttons.

Opera is designed to be the fastest, smallest, and most full-featured browser available. It is really very fast in loading pages. It is definitely faster than Internet Explorer and smaller than Firefox.
The advanced fraud protection of Opera and its anti-phishing detection keeps your browsing safe and secure.
The very interesting feature of Opera is mouse gestures that allow you to do frequently performed browse operations with small, quick mouse movements.

Speed Dial is the new and unique feature of Opera that assigns bookmarks and tabs any digit from one through nine. When you enter one of those numbers into the URL bar, the corresponding site loads when you hit enter.

Opera includes support for BitTorrent so you don't need to download and install a separate BitTorrent program to download large files. Just click on torrent link and start the download.
There are many others features in Opera such as widgets, notes, Wand utility, simple integration with your favorite e-mail and chat clients, RSS feed reader and sessions management. The Opera browser supports many languages and operating systems.
Overall, I think Opera is one of the best browsers for power users who keep many pages open at once and perform frequent downloads. I like it.
