Opera web browser Editor's Review

Opera is a free to download web browser, which is usually overlooked by the majority of people who use web browsers, in favour of the speed for google chrome, or the customisability for firefox. However opera certainly does have its own appeal within the market, and to help you decide whether or not it is an ideal browser for you, this review will be split into a comparison of the various features across the two bigger browsers; firefox and google and compare them to that of opera, to help you decide whether or switch, or just which browser is most useful for you.

Lets start with aesthetical value. Firefox leads the way with a strong, customisable theme and colour set with a massive variety of extensions which you can download to improve that even further. Chrome goes for the minimalist appearance style, focussing the browser on displaying the web pages in as much of the screen as possible, with a low level of customisation. Comparatively, opera doesn't bring much to the table, and goes for the “business browser” look with not too much in the way of customisation, which doesn't look completely bad but for casual internet users, opera is not the best browser as far as appearance is concerned

Secondly, speed. The speed at which the page loads is incredibly important for a browser, and should be one of the most important decisions in your browser decisions. Google chrome leads the pack here, being the fastest browser (by a fair margin, as well). Interestingly enough, and unknown to the majority of its users firefox has a fairly large memory leak, which combined with the number of extensions and add ons firefox has, will slow you down considerably while browsing the web. Opera is a compromise between the too, being a completely stable browser, just a bit slower than chrome, and also giving you updates as to how many elements of the page have loaded.

Finally functionality. This is a fairly broad category that covers how easy a browser is to use, as well as how many features and shortcuts it has. Chrome is a barebones browser with a fairly high improper load rate. Firefox has a variety of add ons, but directly from download does not have too much going for it. Opera, on the other hand has a massive variety of features, including right click gestures and a variety of options, so opera wins here.

Overall, Opera is actually a very good browser, which suffers on outwards appearance but certainly leads the way as far as functionality and stability are concerned. It may not be the best browser for casual internet users, but if you are a heavy internet user (reading a review for web browsers would certainly imply you are) then opera is actually a great web browser, and one that I would recommend you use.
5/5
