Opera is by far my favourite browser.

They add useful functionality years before the competition even thinks of doing so. Opera is the Swiss Army Knife of browsers. It consistently remains one of the fastest surfing experiences and continues to innovate. Just to give you an idea about some of the features it has implemented first, here's a list:

  • Tabbed browsing
  • Tab groups
  • Speed-Dial
  • Built-in E-Mail client
  • Built-in news reader (RSS)
  • Built-in notepad
  • Built-in Torrent engine
  • Mouse gestures
  • Password manager with encryption and a master password
  • Cloud storage of profile settings and synchronization across multiple systems, including encrypted password storage
  • Saving browser sessions
  • A developer add-on (Dragonfly) that is far superior to any other browser's equivalent
  • The best, most widely used and preferred mobile browser version on the market
  • The ability to add bookmarks to menus from any directory
  • Easy access to translation tools
  • The ability to open a web page in another browser
  • Auto-refresh
  • User configurable search engines

Additionally, they have incorporated the best features of their competitors, including:

  • Custom themes
  • Configurable toolbars
  • Plug-in support
  • GUI access to all configuration settings
  • Sandboxed memory allocation to protect system integrity and minimize memory leakage, whenever possible

As extensive as this list is, I may have actually missed a few. Regardless, Opera isn't without it's flaws. No software package is perfect. As such, I also use Firefox, when Opera isn't a viable option; but in order to make Firefox as useful, I need to add almost a dozen plug-ins. I have tried hundreds of over the years, but settled on the following list that accomplishes almost everything I need: OperaZilla!
