"the best free browser! opera."

What do you like best?

is one of the best free browsers that currently exist in the market, is easy and fast to use, has its own integrated vpn, has very strong privacy options compared to other platforms, allows synchronization with other addons, very useful and good.

What do you dislike?

the bad thing about the browser is that it lacks some useful extensions such as having a pdf editor or word mini, which allows you to modify documents in real time, however, compensates in other respects that other browsers lack!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

is a software easy to maneuver and use, has a simple but secure interface, you can use it on a personal and business level, can be used in multiple devices because it is supported on both mobile and computer, is very good.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"A personal browser"

What do you like best?

A browser with a good design and with a toolbar well located to use when the case. Easy to use and configure, totally customizable and with which I can find what I need through the search bar or through quick access. It is also possible for me to import bookmarks, passwords and history from other browsers.

What do you dislike?

It is a fairly complete browser in its functions and tools, what I look for I find it. If I would like the screenshot to cover more space, that is, it would occupy not only the search area but also the tabs and the whole screen.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Whoever tries this browser stays with it because it is much more complete than others, with more options and tools to search, find, capture, configure and communicate with others.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Opera my job of searching is faster, more orderly and more pleasant. I have everything at hand to communicate on Facebook, WhatsApp, capture, configure, avoid advertising, see my history and much more.

"El navegador mas completo de acceso fácil."

What do you like best?

Me encanta este navegador por tener una interfaz simple pero dinámica y elaborada para darle la facilidad de acceso rápido al usuario. Cuenta un motor de búsqueda intuitivo el cual lo vuelve muy rápido y eficaz a la hora de hacer búsquedas en la web, su tiempo de ejecución para acceder al navegador es casi instantánea debido a que no consume tanto rendimiento de la RAM. Opera tiene la opción de agregar chats de whatsapp, facebook y mail, en su barra de marcadores sincronizando tu cuenta con este navegador o simplemente por escaneo de código haciéndolo muy versátil al utilizar, puedes agregar diferentes tipos de extensiones para mejorar la funcionalidad del navegador. Este navegador esta disponible tanto para equipos de escritorios como para equipos móviles, logrando una sincronizacion con la opción "mi flow" para enviar contenido entre los dispositivos asociados a Opera. Es compatible con los sistemas operativos Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X y Linux. Permite la opción de bloqueo de publicidad para evitar esas molestias de cookies y banners que vemos en la web, cuenta con su propia navegación privada en incógnito para no guardar registros caches.

What do you dislike?

Me disgusta el hecho que los fabricantes de Opera a veces descuidan este navegador con falta de actualizaciones haciéndolo quedar atrás en comparación a otros navegadores que progresan su desarrollo, pienso que este navegador tiene mucho potencial y no debería quedarse a la sombra de otros navegadores.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Recomendaciones al usar el navegador Opera, se debe tomar en cuenta la cantidad de extensiones que descarguemos en este navegador, ya que si nos excedemos en una cantidad innecesaria puede que Opera resulte tener una velocidad lenta.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Opera trae ventaja al navegar en la red, por su fácil acceso a las paginas que el usuario puede catalogar como favoritas, se puede acceder al correo de forma rápida al tener el mail predeterminado en la barra lateral haciendo un paso de acceso mas simplificado en esta variedad de opciones, cuenta con su propio VPN integrado lo cual lo vuelve útil en la conexión proxy haciendo una navegación mas segura y estable, su rendimiento de búsqueda es muy intuitivo, no consume mucho procesos RAM como lo hacen otros navegadores y establece una sincronizacion de modo eficiente entre dispositivos.

"Opera, a fast and safe browser"

What do you like best?

Opera is a little known operator but it works the same, with some differences than browsers like Chrome or Firefox. Although what differentiates Opera is that it has a bet on speed so the browser is optimized to be very fast and load in memory only the indispensable for the operation of the application. Its interface is unique and does not look anything like other browsers, personally I find it very nice since it can even be modified by adding themes that completely change the browser making it totally different from the Opera that comes by default. The browser also has support for plugins to extend us to add new features, personally the best plugins of this browser are uBlock, NoScript and GreaseMonkey.

What do you dislike?

What I liked the least about Opera is that it is a very unpopular browser so finding information about how to configure or modify important aspects of the browser kernel is difficult to find on the Internet, in Firefox for example, it is very easy to access the configuration internal with the "about: config" command.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend Opera to all those who are looking for a browser with a good interface and that is especially fast loading the web pages even with lots of javascript as applications based on jQuery. Also Opera is highly recommended because the application is free and does not require a license.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

At work we use Opera as the default browser since we use an extension that is only available in this browser and also for security because most of the security problems are focused on the most popular browsers. We also like Opera for its uniqueness and speed.

"Un Navegador con mucho estilo, muy liviano y muy rapido!"

What do you like best?

Opera es un navegador multiplataforma que funciona en Windows, linux, android. iphone es muy ligero y en cuanto a ordenadores tiene una buena funcionalidad. permite la integracion de mascaras lo cual permite personalizar los fondos al navegador. tiene un diseño muy avanzado. y muy innovador pues se enfoca hacia lo futurista y se inclina hacia un diseño parecido al de la telefonia celular. opera contiene agregada dos funciones muy importantes y utiles vpn gratuito y adblock, hoy en dia para muchos profesionales que busquen informacion e innovacion en cuanto a sus proyectos y compararlos desde un enfoque global este vpn resulta muy util. este navegador tiene una facilidad para ejecutar procesos y abrir paginas de distintos tipos de programacion es decir, puede abrir paginas que trabajen con java. flash o PHP sin ningun problema a diferencia de algunos navegadores

What do you dislike?

Creo que el diseño predeterminado no es tan fácil de usar como otros navegadores que he usado, como Mozilla Firefox o Google Chrome. Aunque todavía puedo acceder a la mayoría de las herramientas con problemas, siento que las barras de herramientas principales y el menú principal no están tan simplificados como los otros navegadores. aparte de esto el tiempo que se toma en iniciar con respecto a la velocidad para abrir el programa con otros navegadores es un poco lenta, aunque esto se compensa con la velocidad de navegacion

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Recomiendo tomen su tiempo para aprender a utilizar las funciones del navegador, pues la version predeterminada es muy distinta a otros tipos de navegadores. para los que estan mas familiarizados con chrome les recomiendo tomen en cuenta que este navegador no viene con un traductor de idiomas por predeterminado. deben tener en cuenta esto-

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Este navegador es realmente aprobechable en cuanto a la parte laboral como personal, sus distintas funciones permiten realizar diversas tareas desde un mismo navegador, se puede tener el chat abierto de facebook y whatsapp desde la barra de herramientas sin tener que consumir espacio o memoria en una pestaña del navegador. son muy utiles las funciones de vpn y la toma de captures facilita ciertos trabajos. por mi parte esa herramienta me permite enviar informacion sin tener que realizar un largo proceso para la toma de un captured descente.

"Opera, fastest browser i have test"

What do you like best?

The interface of Opera is unique compared to other web browsers that have a practically copied interface, with Opera I have the feeling of using a unique product. Technically this application loads websites much faster than its competitors thanks to special filters in its source code that allow blocking advertising without installing third-party extensions or plugins, since everything is included in the core of the application, everything loads faster, including the javascript of the websites.

Although it has many features of its own it is also possible to use its Marketplace to install additional extensions that add new features such as uBlock (although it is not necessary) or NoScript, a plugin that allows you to block the javascript content of a website.

What do you dislike?

Because this browser is not as popular as Google Chrome or Firefox it is difficult to find certain information about options or configurations in relation to the Opera browser, the same happens with the extensions or plugins that always arrive in the last place to the Opera store, in times months after the plugin was available for Google Chrome.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Always use the latest version of the browser and update and activate automatic updates as the Opera team updates your browser on a regular basis and it is always good to keep our system updated. I also recommend using Opera since it's totally free. As for security, I also believe that it is the best for the work because the existing vulnerabilities are in the vast majority of other browsers.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Opera at work because I consider that the browser is much safer because it is little known, most of the vulnerabilities are found for Google Chrome and Firefox while in Opera there are hardly any serious security failures. Also personally I like to use it for its interface which in my opinion is more beautiful aesthetically than Firefox.

"OPERA UN NAVEGADOR ATRACTIVO"

What do you like best?

ESTE NAVEGADOR CUENTA CON UN COMPLEMENTO VPN QUE NO TIENE NINGUN OTRO NAVEGADOR TALES COMO FIREFOX Y CHROME, NOS PERMITE UNA NAVEGACION PRIVADA POR MEDIO DE SU COMPLEMENTO DE VENTANA PRIVADA EL CUAL NOS FACILITA EL MANTENER LIMPIO EL HISTORIAL SIN RECURRIR A LA ELIMINACION DEL MISMO ASI COMO TAMBIEN NOS MUESTRA EL BLOQUEO DE PUBLICIDAD, QUE NOS PERMITE SU USO CON EFICACIA, EL DISEÑO DE LA PAGINA ES LLAMATIVO TIENE MUCHAS CUALIDADES QUE LO HACEN SER UN NAVEGADOR DE FACIL USO, LA VELOCIDAD DE ESTE NAVEGADOR ES OPTIMA EN COMPARACION CON OTROS NAVEGADORES PRESENTES EN EL MERCADO.

What do you dislike?

ME DISGUSTA QUE NO CUENTA CON UN COMPLEMENTO DE IDIOMA MULTILENGUAJE ES IMPORTANTE PARA LOS USUARIOS LA TRADUCCION DE DIVERSAS PAGINAS QUE SE FRECUENTEN SIN RECURRIR A LA BUSQUEDA POR TRADUCTOR LO CUAL TENIENDOLO EL NAVEGADOR OPERA REDUCIRIA NOTABLEMENTE EL TIEMPO EMPLEADO EN DIVERSAS ACTIVIDADES, CABE DESTACAR QUE EL DISEÑO ES LLAMATIVO, SE APRECIA UN DISEÑO FRESCO E INNOVADOR PERO NO SE RENUEVA O ACTUALIZA EN COMPARACION A OTROS NAVEGADORES LO CUAL MOSTRARIA UNA NOTORIA DIFERENCIA EN EL USO DE ESTE NAVEGADOR.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

RECOMIENDO QUE LA IMAGEN DE ESTE NAVEGADOR SE RENUEVE QUE SEA AUN MAS ATRACTIVA AL PUBLICO QUE LO USA CON FRECUENCIA Y QUE SUS ACTUALIZACIONES SEAN MAS CONTINUAS PARA INCLUIR NUEVOS COMPLEMENTOS QUE NOS FACILITEN AUN MAS SU USO, ASI COMO LA INCLUSION DE UN COMPLEMENTO MULTILENGUAJE QUE FACILITE NUESTRAS ACTIVIDADES Y MEJORE NUESTRA EXPERIENCIA AL USAR ESTE NAVEGADOR.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

CON ESTE NAVEGADOR PUEDO TENER ACCESO A CORREOS ELECTRONICOS, PAGINAS WEB O REDES SOCIALES TAL COMO WHATSAPP Y FACEBOOK QUE POR MEDIO DE SU BARRA DE HERRAMIENTAS ME DA UN ACCESO DIRECTO, COMODO Y EFICAZ SIN TENER QUE APERTURAR VARIAS PESTAÑAS,EL BENEFICIO QUE OBTIENES ES EN CASO DE HABER UNA FALLA EN EL EQUIPO COMPUTADOR AL INICIAR EL MISMO RESTABLECES NUEVAMENTE LA PAGINA UTILIZADA POR LO QUE NOS PERMITE LA REANUDACION DE LA PAGINA QUE SE ESTUVIESE UTILIZANDO.

"affordable navegator, opera!"

What do you like best?

is a web browser with which you have the possibility of using a free vpn, in addition to doing searches in real time, integrate it with other applications such as extensions, enter news or your own email.

What do you dislike?

there are times when the program is frozen due to the prolonged use of vpn, in fact I do not know why this happens, it is probably due to a small error in its programming, they constantly get updates to correct problems.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

taking into account the functions of this web browser, which has a unique and easy-to-use interface, is highly recommended for your personal and company-level use, it will solve the problem you have regarding obtaining something free and reliable.el, it will solve the problem you have.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

technically I do everything from looking for information, to enter my bank accounts, to enter this same page of g2, to enter my social networks and email, it really is very useful since it can be synchronized with everything and used in multiple devices.

"EL navegador mas rapido y util, un desempeño para cualquier memoria RAM!!"

What do you like best?

Este navegador es muy practico sencillo e innovador a la vez , contine caracteristicas innovadoras que se asemejan a las plataformas de software libre, un diseño personalizable y muy parecido al sistema android, las barras de extenciones, que ofrecen acceso directo al chat live de facebook y el inicio de seccion de whatsapp resultan de mucha utilidad, la personalizacion de las paginas de favoritos es estupenda, y la herramienta de crear captureds resuslta estupenda a la hora de integrarse con otros usuarios que necesiten un indicio fotografico de como realizar alguna accion.

What do you dislike?

A diferencia de otras plataformas de navegadores este navegador no dispone de un traductor de lenguajes integrado, como lo hacen navegadores como chrome o chromium , los cuales permiten tradcir distintos idiomas de manera automatica, al abrir las paginas.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Es recomendable esta plataforma de navegador web para aquellos usuarios que dispongan de informacion o busquedas de indoles internacionales, pues la misma cuenta con excelente vpn integrado, el mismo ofrece un servicio de lectura de lenguaje de escritura de paginas activo el cual permite ver contenido JAVA o PHP , C+ de manera directa sin la necesidad de asignar permisos para ello..

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Utilizo este navegador en casi todos mis dispositivos, tablets, equipo celular, mi pc personal y de trabajo, pues en todas las versiones descargable me a parecido el mejor navegador en cuanto a velocidad y consumo de memoria por paginas y cache utilizados, este navegador ofrece una herramienta muy util para mis labores de busqueda de informacion y descargas de software que para mi pais no se encuentran habilitadas, el VPN que trae de manera predeterminada es realmente util y es la atraccion mas util para las funciones que desempeño con este navegador.

"really good if you are a casual user"

What do you like best?

Opera is one of the most remarkable experiences I had with browsers. It has way more features than some other browsers, but my favorite is may be that you can use extensions from the chrome and firefox store.

What do you dislike?

Opera is a fantastic browser, but as functional as it is, opera is not as fast as other competitors, such as Firefox and Chrome. That may be one of the worst things about it, but you can barely notice it if you aren't a technical user.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's terrific if you are a casual user that likes the best of both worlds, but if you are a technical user that puts speed over anything, opera isn't for you.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I would say, taking quick screenshots with the quick screenshot tool, it's handy if you are in a slow computer and the snippet tool takes a while to open. Another thing I like is the overlay youtube, where you can touch a button and the youtube video overlays on other programs, this helps a lot with multi-tasking.

"Perfecto navegador rapido y facil de usar"

What do you like best?

Para mi unos de los navegador multiplataforma mas rapido que funciona en los sitemas operativos Windows, linux, android. iphone, y en cuanto a ordenadores tiene una buena funcionalidad y aspecto. permite la integracion de mascaras lo cual permite personalizar los fondos al navegador. tiene un diseño muy avanzado y ordenado, es innovador pues se enfoca hacia lo futurista, opera contiene agregada dos funciones muy importantes y utiles vpn gratuito y adblock que permien entrar en paginas bloqueadas por la ip y que desabhilita la publicidad en algunas paginas que pueden ser muy molestas, hoy en dia para muchos profesionales que busquen informacion e innovacion en cuanto a sus proyectos y compararlos desde un enfoque global.

What do you dislike?

Al igual que otros navegadores si no tienes una conexion optima se pondra un poco lento, siento que las barras de herramientas principales y el menú principal no están tan simplificados como los otros navegadores. todavía hay sitios web ocasionales que afirman que no soportan Opera y sugieren que use Chrome en su lugar. No es de extrañar que el sitio web siga funcionando bien en Opera.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Lo recomiendo mucho y que tomen su tiempo para aprender a utilizar las funciones del navegador, pues la version predeterminada es muy distinta a otros navegadores, para los que estan mas familiarizados con chrome les recomiendo tomen en cuenta, ojo no viene con traductor pero pero lo puedes descargar como un complento.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sus distintas funciones permiten realizar diversas tareas desde un mismo navegador, uno de los puntos fuerte de este gran navegador es que mientras navegas puede chatear por facebook messenger o whatsapp web desde la barra de herramientas sin tener que consumir espacio o memoria en una pestaña del navegador. son muy utiles las funcion del vpn y de adblock porque te reducen la memoria consumidad por navegar en distintos sitios

"Opera un buen Navegador."

What do you like best?

Opera esta disponible para todas las plataformas de escritorio, Windows, Mac y Linux y móviles, Android, iOS y Windows Phone. Es un navegador básico y sencillo fácil de utilizar para sus usuarios, cuenta con navegación privada; los sitios web que visites no se registrarán en el historial y las descargas que se hagan tampoco se registrarán en tu historial de descargas. Además, las cookies que se guardan al navegar en modo privado se eliminan una vez que se cierran todas las ventanas abiertas. Tiene la opción de bloquear la publicidad, permite reducir datos de navegación, sobre todo si se utiliza en dispositivos móviles, realizar navegación en varias pestañas a la vez, guarda en la página de inicio del navegador miniaturas de sitios web seleccionados, pausa cualquier descarga para continuarla cuando así se requiera, posee barra de marcadores, elimina historial de páginas visitadas, historial de archivos descargados y otros tipos de información privada, protege de fraudes electrónicos detectando sitios inseguros, entre otros muchas funciones. También me gusta el panel lateral que facilita la labor de anclar páginas y aplicaciones web, tiene pocas actualizaciones en comparación con otros navegadores que están en continuo desarrollo.

What do you dislike?

El tiempo de carga inicial de Opera es lento en comparación con otros navegadores como Google Chrome o Mozilla Firefox, sus grandes competidores.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Recomiendo usar Opera en cualquier entorno, tanto personal como laboral ya que se pueden crear accesos directos fácilmente con un simple movimiento del ratón y esta disponible para plataformas de escritorio y móviles.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Opera es sencillo y eficaz, elegido como principal navegador por facilitar el trabajo con múltiples pestañas.

"Great browser that I use daily. "

What do you like best?

Free VPN. Built-in adblock feature. In these ages, a free VPN is a must have, especially for marketers who want to see what there search engine results look like from other parts of the world. And for people who want to keep their search engine history from the prying eyes of the government.

And Opera has always been on the up-and-up with it's innovations. Heading the browser innovation by being the first to have tabs, being the first to come up with private browser, first to come up with browser sessions, etc, etc . It's also surprisingly fast.

What do you dislike?

I'm still getting use to it's UIs. Oh and the advertisements in the new tab dashboard is a pain, but they have to make money somehow. Even Mozilla Firefox which has added "sponsored" websites to it's tabs page and it's open source.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Get it, it's free. And worth the shot. Especially considering that it has a free VPN built in.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Helps me browse the internet faster and with a VPN. More privacy controls, and general greatness. VPN is what brought me here because I need it for my development/marketing needs. And the general fast speed and great extensions is what made me stay.

"A modern and smooth browser with great website compatibility"

What do you like best?

Opera is generally a very reliable browser that can successfully load most pages I visit regardless of how they're programmed. For instance, it can load websites with Flash, JavaScript and PHP applications that other web browsers may have trouble loading. There are extensive settings and options like browser caching, bookmark importing, privacy levels and more that help to tailor my browsing experience to my particular needs. I also like that there is a VPN built right into the browser, which is something other popular browsers don't have.

What do you dislike?

I think the default layout isn't as user friendly as some other browsers I've used, such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. Though I can still access most of the tools with problems, I feel like the top toolbars and main menu aren't as streamlined as the other browsers. It would be nice to be able to customize the layout of buttons and such more.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I'd recommend trying out the VPN in Opera for increased security and privacy. If you run into any problems accessing websites with it, you can simply turn it off for those particular websites. I'd also suggest adding quick links to your home menu, which can allow you to access your commonly visited website with just a click of a button.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Opera has provided me with a reliable way to access most business websites I visit. I feel like it has the highest success rate for loading websites and usually loads them in the way they were meant to be viewed. I can also archive websites for offline viewing when I need to read articles or other business information at a later time.

" A friendly interface search engine"

What do you like best?

This search engine is highly ordered, both the tools and the search space are visible and well located. In addition, I love the design they have to place the sites that one frequents and the ease of locating or adding them.

What do you dislike?

Although it is considered one of the fastest search engines, in reality it sometimes gets as slow as others, especially when downloading pages with flash. This slowness makes you have to change the search engine many times, which takes time and generates more work.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The design of the page and the tools they offer will be to your liking, once they navigate through Opera they will not want to change except in case of emergency.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Because of the simplicity and order of the interface, it is very useful to search for information quickly. It also allows placing and locating sites of companies and institutions to which we must access daily.

"Opera a useful browser"

What do you like best?

I like the capacity of this browser to connect all sites easily and quickly.

The new version is interesting because it includes the possibility to be connected on Facebook Messenger and Whatsapp without leaving the current page you are visiting, and some other extensions like Instagram.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the fact that sometimes it stays in a loop that don't let you to change between tabs, I'm not sure whether it's attributable to Opera or windows version, but I think you should review it.

When Internet connection is too slow the browser lose connection, then the web page is not reachable or it becomes too slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a good browser, it is easy to use and perfect if you want to have your favourite pages on sight.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Surfing the web has become in an interesting experience, because it is really faster than the rest of the browsers I have used before.

"A smooth browsing experience and great alternative to IE"

What do you like best?

Web pages generally load pretty quickly and accurately in Opera. I've been using other browsers like Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari for years and found that this browser is just as good or better since it has a built-in VPN that some of those browsers don't have. Opera also has all the basic features you'd expect like bookmarks and history clearing, which are all pretty simple to use.

What do you dislike?

Since it's not one of the most widely used browsers, there's always some uncertainty about whether websites are optimized for it. The marketplace of extensions isn't as vast as some of the other browsers, at least for the extensions I typically use.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Opera is definitely worth a try, especially if you've only used one or two browsers for a while, which I think many people do. It's free, so you don't have anything to lose. You may find that your browsing experience is smoother and safer from viruses.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can have a smooth and reliable web browsing experience that is secure. I can quickly go to frequently visited websites through the bookmarks and also import and export the bookmarks to other web browsers.

"My preferred browser for accessing the internet"

What do you like best?

I adore the new in-browser ad-blocking feature. I no longer have to download a separate extension to block the ads that were making some websites impossible to access.

What do you dislike?

There are still the occasional website that claims they do not support Opera and suggest I use Chrome instead. Unsurprisingly the website still functions fine in Opera. I guess my only dislike is that websites continue to snub a browser that works better than the other browsers on the market.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Chrome is slow and can bog down your computer by taking up all available memory to access the internet. I've had Chrome freeze up both my mac and pc. Firefox, while still a decent browser, does not offer in-browser ad-blocking. Your business and accounts are safer online if you use Opera to access the internet.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it for web development testing. If it works in Opera, it is more likely to work in both Chrome and Firefox. I only have to make a couple small adjustments to ensure the site works as expected in IE.

"This browser works alright, but their Mac OS X version appears to be buggy"

What do you like best?

Opera has quite a memory - my saved tabs from a few years ago came right back up when I just newly installed the latest Opera version after having uninstalled it long ago. The browser is pretty fast and open in how it is loading data. It is flexible with supported formats.

What do you dislike?

It crashed as I was finishing playing a video on crash, and it sometimes can run slowly. Various websites display with basic and rather ugly fonts and font sizes that other browsers don't use...

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give it a try, but don't put it in the A list next to Safari/Chrome/IE 10.

"Very good plan B option for Mac users :-)"

What do you like best?

I'm using safari and opera as my browser options. I've tried using chrome but it hasn't so far, not as good as Opera to me. I know they've been around for a long time. I do remember the Opera + Eudora combination which was a very good one, and I know I can use Opera as a backup on my mac for certain, understanding it will work out just fine.

What do you dislike?

Nothing really, it just works out very fine.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try it, it works out just fine :)

"Only for outdated devices"

What do you like best?

For outdated machines, Opera is the right browser. It gives almost all the features that the modern browsers offer.

What do you dislike?

Cannot be used in the modern machines. Very old UI and slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have not made the switch to latest upgrades like Win7/8, OSX, iOS, Android. Use only opera. Works well in Symbian for mobile too.

"Really ... Not for a PC"

What do you like best?

Not much to like here. I have tried it on a mobile device and it's not bad, but not great either. Speed is only thing it's got going for it as I feel like it's faster than I.E.

What do you dislike?

On a PC, it's horrible. The graphics quality is poor; the screen looks like a screen shot image that you resize when placing on a PowerPoint slide.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For a PC, don't waste your time. There are far superior browsers out there to use.

It works, nothing really to say otherwise. Lacks features that others have

It's rather bland and there are so many better options available.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Okay if you have to use Linux

"Works where no other browser does"

What do you like best?

I inherited one Windows 2000 workstation with a few tricky custom installs. IE stopped working, Chrome was nagging about the update, yet couldn't complete it due to being on old OS. Surprisingly, Opera had no problem getting installed and doing great job.

What do you dislike?

Not much. It gets the job done right, where I needed.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

May not win the race with other browsers, yet still works well on very old systems.

Websites don't work properly.

check out google chrome or firefox

"Cant see using this browser over Chrome or Firefox"

What do you like best?

Its not a bad browser, supposed to be good on mobile

What do you dislike?

While not terrible it does have some compatibility issues with CSS where it does not look quite the same. Checkboxes on forms look odd.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

While not a bad browser I can't see any compelling reason to use it over Firefox or Chrome.

"Opera mini - compression mobile browser saves bandwidth and faster page loads"

What do you like best?

Compression provides for faster page loads and reduced bandwidth vs the stock Android browser. I've used it as an alternative browser if I have problems with the standard browser; however, there are increasingly other alternatives such as Dolphin HD and Skyfire

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the pages scale irregularly and there are occasional crashes. Lacks the stronger social media features that skyfire has.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're looking for a fast page loader, on occasion, it's good to have this available. For greater plugins, consider Dolphin; or more stable use of Flash (at least, until jellybean android comes on), consider Skyfire.

"Is Opera even relevant any more?"

What do you like best?

I agree with the other reviewers that it is a small application that runs pretty quickly. So if you're runny old hardware, it will work well for you.

What do you dislike?

It lack everything all the other browsers have.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Only for those who are on old hardware.

"Major Lack of Support"

What do you like best?

Opera has been a solid browser for a long time.

What do you dislike?

Most websites are not created with Opera support in mind, and this causes some incompatibilities.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Unless you have been using Opera already, look at Chrome or FireFox.

"Not relevant anymore"

What do you like best?

It was a groundbreaking browser in it's time, being one of the first to adopt CSS. Opera is still under active development, though no one really uses it. I think it is more popular in Europe.

What do you dislike?

Due to its lack of market share in the US, not all sites support Opera.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Not worth adopting a browser that no one uses. Go with Chrome or Firefox instead.
