Fastest and Elegant Browser on Earth – Opera 9.52

Posted by kasun04 on August 30, 2008

Opera 9.52 is considered to be as the most powerful web browser that offers number of utilitarian features without penalizing the performance. As its counter part, Mozilla Firefox becoming more and more famous among web users, Opera is also becoming one of the major competitors against Firefox. Although many people are used to boring and tiresome Firefox, Opera’s latest version came up with a bunch of awesome features.

Faster Rendering Engine – Presto Rendering Engine

Opera uses their very own rendering engine (layout engine); ‘Presto’. ‘Presto’ is much faster than the tedious
‘Gecko’ layout engine (Mozilla project’s layout engine).

Elegant Look

You should use it and experience it. Here are some screen captures.

Download Manager with BitTorrent

Download files quicker with Opera. Opera starts downloading as soon as you’ve saved the file, so there’s no wasted time. Pause and resume downloads with the push of a button, and choose multiple files to download simultaneously without any fuss. Opera also features built-in support for the social file distribution protocol, BitTorrent, which makes it easy to download Torrent files without the need for a separate application.
I guess you know this .. Firefox download manager sucks!!

Opera Link and Speed Dial

Access your favorite Web sites everywhere!. Opera link syncs your bookmarks and Speed Dial between your computers and mobile phone. See the screen shots to see the use of speed dial.
(Firefox and IE copied this from opera. )

Tabs and Sessions

Most comprehensive tab browsing was introduced by Opera. Opera is very light on your computer, so it’s possible to have many tabs open at once. Drag and drop tabs around to change their order, or get a preview pausing over them with your mouse. You can even save a session of tabs for later, making it easy to pick up where you left off.

Zoom and Fit to width

Is it difficult to read the content on a page? Use Opera’s Zoom button in the lower right corner to resize Web
pages. If the page is too wide for your screen, simply hit “Fit to Width” and Opera will resize the Web page so you avoid horizontal scrolling.

Built-in e-mail and newsfeeds

Opera’s built-in e-mail client features improved responsiveness. It also retrieves and searches your mail and news feeds even faster than before. In Opera, newsfeeds are stored on your computer so you can read them later, even when you’re offline. Easily tag articles so you know which ones you want to read, which ones are important, which ones are funny, etc.

Quick Find

Have you ever forgotten the page where you found that great article or that perfect gift? When using Opera the browser remembers not only the titles and addresses, but the actual content of the Web pages you visit.
