Super Fast Browsing With Style Opera has always been the browser with the greatest efficiency among all others. When you open the browser, it shows what is called “Speed Dial”. A homepage that meets all of the most visited websites by you or recent favorites. Seems silly, but it is really very useful.
Opera tabs are known for their flexibility. This is because, as soon as you click and drag the bar that separates the navigation tabs, you can get thumbnails of the pages that are open. The visual is great and makes it easier for those who love to open many pages at the same time.
You can access the other main functions of the browser (E-mail, Favorites and Widgets etc) by clicking on the big red “O” in the upper-left corner. And don’t worry about the plug-ins compatibility, because most already installed, as the Flash Player.
Resources Opera complements automatically what you type in the address bar with history and Favorites that you have. Search within pages has also been enhanced, so you filter what you’re looking for. If you use Opera with Windows 7, realizes that the visuals are made to suit the new operating system. I.e. transparency takes care of the browser from the top to the lowest part of it.
