Davids Opera Review

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: Opera is a great browser that i use both on the phone and laptop as it does not consume a lot of data as most browsers.

Pros:

Opera is not taxing on machine hardware and offers a portable version that one can use without having to install it on the machine.

Cons:

Extention management and support is not as good or extensive as other browsers such as firefox or chrome.

Great Browser with some issues

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: Opera is my favorite Web Browser, but I can't deny right now I am giving some steps toward the New Internet Explorer as it does have many of Opera features, and it is a little faster and better integrated with websites.

Pros:

Good looking interface. Free VPN (with some conditions) Pop-Up videos (a super useful feature to have) Units converter ( things such as currencies or metric units can be converted by hovering over the amount, and this is super useful )

Cons:

You can not export your personal data to any other browser. Things like passwords shall remain in Opera, and I guess this is how they push people to remain in the software somehow. The VPN does not allow you to choose a country right now as it used to be but a region, and it makes it kind of useless.

Simple and smooth

Pros:

I liked most about Opera the ease of being able to browse and reach the destination and information you were looking for.

Cons:

What I liked the least is that sometimes the system froze which is common with all processing systems.

Opera min Browser Reviews

5.0 4 months ago

Comments: Enjoying using this Browser as it uses less data and allows easy downloading.

Pros:

Offline and ad-blocking features are exceptional. Opera Mini is a solid choice for users who prioritize data savings, speed, and basic browsing on their mobile devices. However, if you need extensive features, complete privacy, or flawless rendering of rich media, other browsers might be a better fit.

Cons:

Less privacy and poor tab management. But all in all this browser is dope.

Opera, a browser that has evolved greatly over the years.

4.0 3 years ago

Comments: Opera is fluid, fast, but overall, it's a highly customizable browser, you can make it entirely personalized and access all our data on any other device with opera, it has left me with good taste because you can see the care and passion that the developer team and the community have to make it a browser with personality. My final comment is that I profoundly recommend opera to the user who wants to have a fully own space and has the latent need to have a unique browser.

Pros:

Opera is amazing because not only its a browser, managing this software is a whole experience, integrating particular functions such as a VPN, a coin converter, and others, the revolutionary sidebar is a feature that every browser should envy, permitting us to access our social media, bookmarks, and many other functions.

Cons:

Notwithstanding being a browser-based on chromium, Opera can be somewhat overpowering or overcharging for the user that just wants to search on the web without the need to customize so many appearances, Opera isn't for everyone, and this can be confirmed by recognizing that this browser has more than one version, opening, even more, the gap between casual handling and customization experience that opera offers us.
