My Experience with Opera 10.0

Posted by Kristan Sunday, December 27, 2009

My first experience with Opera was two years ago, that was Opera 9.0. Since IE7 became a heavy browser for my desktop, I started using Mozilla Firefox as my default browser. What I basically observed using Firefox is that it keeps on crushing everytime I open 6-10 sites simultaneously. With this, the need of a much stronger browser has been a requirement. Here comes Opera 9, another browser, which is not yet common to me that time.

I downloaded Opera 9.0 and experienced great internet surfing. The major features of Opera 9 were speed dial, also termed as visual bookmarking, pop-up ad blocker, Bittorrent client, and its famous mouse gestures for quick tab actions. After quite sometime, Opera 10.0 was out, bringing its more powerful features!


The newly enhance feature of Opera 10 is the display thumbnail when you hover your mouse cursor in a tab, unlike in Opera 9, it was smaller. Opera Turbo feature is a great way for the browser to automatically adjust in order to keep the internet surfing at its peek. It helps optimize by using data compression to ensure superior browsing experience.


Many of the improvements of Opera 10 mainly involves in the Opera Mail Program, eventually a better email client than MS Outlook.
Basically, the interface of Opera 10 is not new compared to the previous versions of it. Obviously, the main focus of development was not for its interface but for its functionality.


In conclusion, I just love the development of Opera, the interface is good, and the Opera mouse gestures are very handy!

...and by the way, i'll be blogging about this browser's another great feature, Opera Unite, on my next blog post.
