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.

Fast, Safe and Functional

I have used Safari for most of my Apple life but I think Opera is a nice companion. The browser is very light, so yo don’t feel like your battery is gonna die just browsing a page for those dealing with stalking online. The tab feature is pretty neat, all your open pages are there. Not sure the website you visited? You get a little preview. 5/5 for Usability and it takes just a few seconds to get used to migrating from other browsers. Compared to others it’s really fast and offers a lot of privacy and security features that aren’t so hidden in the settings. I switched from Firefox Focus mainly because of the browser Home Screen it seemed more inviting as a user. No one wants to keep typing the url the only downside is the internet cut outs when using the browser randomly when you visit a site. Going to try another browser as well and see if there’s a difference

The best browser ever.

I have used google chrome for pretty much my whole life and I downloaded Opera GX (the gaming version of opera) on my PC about a month ago. It is much better than Chrome and has widgets at the side which I find useful, especially Messenger. I just downloaded Opera Touch today and although it does not have widgets and some other PC and/or Opera GX features it is still significantly better than all of the other browsers I hve used in my life. I completely reccomend downloading this and giving it a try. I like that there is icons for sites you like. You can addand remove them, which is nice. It has an easy and understandable UI (user interface) and looks simpler, not cluttered by what other browsers are cluttered with. Five stars from me!
