    I’ve used Opera since 2001. I suggest you start using it too. “Eyes open; no fear. Be safe everyone.” S0

      If you used it for so long, did you realize that it’s not the same browser? How is it different to Chrome? Stating “be safe”, is not very convincing, because Opera is one chromium version behind respectively to Chrome. Is there any other reason to use Opera? Bookmarks manager is really kinky, thumbs in dial page were ditched (they were nice), syncing does not work with google account (this actually might be a good thing), a lot of chrome extensions does not work, and so on… Oh and Opera will ditch Npapi as well as chrome will. So really I don’t know… Opera 12 was so rich in features and now it’s just an another chromium clone…

        A ‘chromium clone’ with a rendering engine far more capable than with the old Opera. No amount of features made up up for Opera’s woefull page rendering of the past!

          Yes that’s why I’ve learned to embrace Next. But I still run old versions of Opera for comfort. I really liked the integrated mail & bookmarks & notes. Switching to Next has allowed me to use cHrome extensions which made me rely more on Evernote w/ Clearly.

        Have you tried “Vivaldi” beta ?
        It’s a spin-off from some of the original Opera folks.

    Opera is best browser!

  • I’ve been using Opera since version 9.2x

  • Opera mini used to be the best browser on Windows mobile! Now it’s available for Windows 8.x, unfortunately, this version is so old school !!! Almost the same browser as the Windows Mobile era.

  • The desktop version and Android version are great!!! I like them!!

  • Opera has not kept up with speed improvements and 100% standards based browsing. It needs a modern fresh overhaul

  • I found few useful extensions to Opera. However, one of the most useful items is being able to create many search options in the URL bar. That is a huge time saver, and that alone may keep me using Opera for a long time.

  • Florian Schafsweide

    I keep on using Opera12, because Opera without integrated mail-client isn’t Opera!

  • Опера мини очень крутой браузер, с ним не поспоришь!))))

    As a Firefox user I was reluctant to try another browser.I was pleasantly surprised at Opera’s speed and stability.The key word here is STABILITY. Firefox is constantly crashing for the mere reason of several windows open.On sites like Pinterest Firefox is hopeless and is unable to do it’s job. Granted that Firefox has many useful features but not enough to keep me a fan.I now love Opera as much!
