Best browser - by a long shot

Why has no one raved about Opera before? I reluctantly decided to check it out after a friend was singing it praises but I wasn't expecting much since I haven't read much online about it at all. Boy was I in for a surprise! It has the best of both Firefox (share -> open in browser) and Chrome (chromecast) + lots, lots more functionality that none of the others have (tab synching across devices, sending pages or anything at all to your "flow" across devices [only a proactive 'send a tab' exists in Firefox but never works for me], mini messenger windows inside of it, etc). Not to mention that their mobile browser is super easy and intuitive to use with their one thumb button.
I heard most of the previous browser inventions came out of Opera, too.
Sorry why has no one raved about it before?! More ppl need to get it.

Wonderful, for so long I have wanted to download a gedcom file from ancestry on my iOS iPhone, could not do with the main browser or other ones I tried, I did not want to buy a laptop just to do this. So I searched the internet for any information, none, so started downloading browsers too experiment, and have now found the best and easiest one to do it. As I have bought some apps to open the gedcom file to see my ancestors all I had to do was download the file and tell the browser while app I wanted to open the file in.

I would have paid for this app as it would be cheaper than buying a laptop, but gladly it is free. The other thing I like is the dark night look for reading at night, does not upset my bed partner.

Thank you.

I love this browser!

Having tried all the major browsers for iOS, I find Opera's offering to excel in all the right places. The user has been considered in a number of design choices - I love the way tabs work, for example.

Common features of browsers include navigation gestures and bookmarks. For some reason (well it must be good design) I find myself using Opera's features where I might do things the long way in another browser.

Opera's cross-platform "My Flow" feature is like a glorified synced bookmark folder that you can and write notes in, but it's actually really awesome and a great way to transition content from mobile to desktop or vice versa.

Because I have so enjoyed the mobile experience of this browser, I've actually started using Opera for desktop over Chrome and Firefox and I don't see myself going back any time soon.

- The hamburger button (Use it! Touch it! Hold it! It's awesome!)
- My Flow
- Find on Page is in a sensible place
- Built-in ad block and crypto-mining protection
- General design

- Voice search doesn't like me very much
- Private Mode not accessible via the hamburger
