Opera is a fast and safe cross-platform web browser, trusted by more than 400 million users worldwide, and offers a feature-rich alternative to common browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer. In 2013, Opera decided to discard its own Presto engine in favor of Blink engine, a browser engine developed as a part of the Chromium project. Upon the Blink engine, it adds its own set of unique features.
Opera Web Browser is simple to use yet powerful. It has more than 1700 available extensions that let you mix and match additional features to customize the browser the way you want. The browser is rich in features and even offers tools for advanced users, like unlimited free VPN, VR player (360-degree videos), built-in ad/pop-up blocker (makes content-rich webpages load up to 90% faster), pop-out videos, customizable shortcuts, Opera Turbo, and personal news. Moreover, it allows you to sync your data across devices.
The browser also offers a unique Battery saver feature: you can activate this feature when your laptop is on a low battery level to conserve energy. The browser will disable animations, unused plugins, and reduce background activity, so it increases battery life by up to 5%.
Opera Browser was designed to be suitable for all internet users, even for slow internet connections, by using the Opera Turbo that can compress web-ages. The browser works seamlessly across a wide range of devices, including laptops, notebooks, tablets and smartphones. It can run on Microsoft Windows, iOS, macOS, Android and Linux.
