Opera is a free web browser that's fast, rich in features and innovative. Far behind Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Safari in terms of numbers of users, Opera is, however, the equal of its competitors and offers you a browser that's always at the forefront of technology.

Everything to let you surf easily

The Opera web browser offers all the features you need to happily surf the web. Speed Dial and Bookmarks pages are available when you launch the browser and offer you easy access to the sites you use the most and those you've added to your favorites. At startup, Opera also offers a Discover page so you can always keep an eye on the news. It displays the news by topic and you can select the country and the language.

Extensions can be easily downloaded from the store. You are even able to install Google Chrome extensions from the Chrome Store. Opera has a special type of add-ons that open in the sidebar. Currently there are not many but are ideal to display contextual information about the page you're viewing.

Opera includes a download manager, history and a private browsing mode so you can navigate without leaving a trace. It also lets you install extensions to customize your surfing experience. While the catalog is much smaller than that provided by competing browsers, you will find versions of Adblock Plus, Feedly, Pinterest, Evernote Clearly etc. for Opera.

The Opera address bar is powerful and allows you to perform searches on multiple search engines at the same time, while benefiting from the suggestions for websites that gradually appear as you type.

Excellent design and performance

Opera's design means you get a model of simplicity and practicality. Keyboard shortcuts are very similar to those used by other browsers so you can navigate very conveniently with Opera. The options are where you would expect them to be, and the Speed Dial and Notebook pages are well thought out – generally speaking, the interface is very pleasant to use. Opera is customizable with themes so you can add your own personal touch.

Opera handles the latest web standards to perfection by using the Blink rendering engine. Besides good performance, Opera offers a functionality dedicated to slow Internet connections. Opera Turbo compresses pages to provide quick navigation, even when your connection is barely there.

A browser that's gaining momentum

Opera has all the great qualities you need. It's comprehensive, with a nice interface and regularly innovates to offer you the best possible experience. If you want to move away from Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer, then Opera is definitely the way to go.
