Opera icon Beautiful looking and fast web browser designed to offer its users quick access to any website via an intuitive and simple to use interface

Besides its renowned speed, Opera is also well known for its extended standards support, high flexibility and a sleuth of web security features.

Web standards compliant

Moreover, the Opera browser comes with built-in support for the most important and latest web standards in use at the present time, including HTML5, CSS 2.1, HTML 4.01, XHTML 1.1, WML 2.0, SVG 1.1 tiny, DOM 2, and ECMAScript.

Moreover, Opera features an integrated Discover feature designed to provide the browser's users with quick access to the most recent entertainment sources and news from around the world. Therefore, via this feature, you will be able to view up to date content, drawn from a large assortment of categories and regions.

Suggestions powered address bar

Opera also comes with an address / search bar that makes navigating and searching the web a natural process, allowing you to view suggestions as you're typing and choose between a large number of search providers to get the job done faster.

In addition, Opera boasts a modern looking interface, tightly packed with state-of-the-art features and instruments designed to deliver all the tools one should need to explore the Internet.

Built-in Speed Dial and automatic web page compression in Off-Road mode for faster browsing speeds

One more significant and important feature of Opera, the Off-Road mode, has been created to improve browsing speeds exponentially by automatically compressing web pages when your connection to the Internet is too slow to use the regular approach to web browsing.

What's more, its Speed Dial feature, a browser component now present in all popular web browsers, will automatically group your most visited websites on a start page that gets you started with only a couple of mouse clicks once you launch Opera on your Mac.

The Opera Internet browser has been released publicly for the first time in December 1996 and since then it has built-upon its own web browser engine.

Open source WebKit fork engine

Nowadays, the latest version of Opera uses Blink, an open source fork of the WebCore component of WebKit, an web browser engine also used by the Google Chrome and Chromium browsers, among others.
