Editor's Review for Opera 32-bit
Opera is a web browser that is commonly overlooked these days. Many consumers either prefer using Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Internet Explorer, the latter of which decided by the generally less tech literate users as it comes pre-installed with the Windows operating system. Unfortunately, the very powerful, sleek and well designed browser that is Opera is ignored.
Opera is a web browser that functions on both Windows and Mac OS X. It is built upon the Blink Layout Engine and because of this it enjoys many of the benefits of Google Chrome while avoiding the pitfalls of privacy that Google Chrome typically sees. The browser began in 1994 as a simple research project that was not considered to turn into a consumer product.
Eventually, Opera was developed to the point where the average home computer user could utilize its many benefits without too much grievances. It conveniently comes with tabbed browsing, a strict requirement for any browser that wishes to compete in the modern, internet driven world. Issues have arisen however, in the form of its incompatibility issues. Patches, updates, bug fixes and other mends are continuously being applied by the Opera team, and today it competes with all who stand against it.
