Advantages of Using Opera as Internet Browser

I have been using Opera Internet Browser months after I started blogging. An online friend, Aerin of Pinay Ads, introduced it to me and advised to use it because it has an automatic refresh feature, which I, as a blogger, need it.

For more than three years of blogging, I have been using and tried several internet browsers like FireFox, Safari, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and, of course, Opera. Each of these browsers has their own unique features. Actually, I am still using FireFox, Google Chrome and Opera until now for different reasons.

I think I will never give up Opera Browser because it has many advantages over the other mentioned internet browsers. Some of its main advantages are:

*Opera got extension support in version 11. It has amazing features like sidebar, bitTorrent support, bookmarks & notes synchronization, speed dial and custom search engines, among others.

*Most customizable interface: You can customize the mouse gestures easily. You can have 2 commands in the same gesture like Open and close sidebar and take note, this feature is not present in any other browser, with or without addons.

*Email Client and Feed reader: So you don’t need to open other application to check your mail or feed.

*Smooth interface:

Although I make Firefox mimic Opera’s features with the help of addons, it never feels as smooth as Opera. Since all addons come separately, they only integrate with Firefox, not with each other. So, for instance, you can open a bookmark in the All in One Sidebar, but it will never show as a button. Plus, mouse gestures do not work as smoothly in any other browser, no matter where the gesture starts or where it ends, it will work, on any tab.

*On the fly webpage modification:

This might not seem to be a very useful feature, but it is fun. Plus it is unique to Opera; no other browser allows you to do this. You can open the source of any webpage, make changes and hit apply changes. The changes will show up in the original webpage (the modification will take place only on your PC, not the source page on the server).

*Comes on all platforms: Whether you’re using Windows, Linux, or any other platforms, Opera can still be used. They even have Opera Mini mobile internet browser for mobile phones!

Now, it’s your time to try the Opera internet browser and experience browsing like never before! You can download opera here: Download Opera Internet Browser
