Opera is a full-featured web suite by Opera Software ASA, a Norwegian IT company. It is closed-source, but I prefer to say it is "free as parking".

Why shoul I use Opera?

  • It's fast, stable and lightweight
  • It's looks pretty and is very much customizable
  • It needs no extensions and provides web browser with mouse gestures and ad blocking, mail client, bittorrent client and IRC client all in one!
  • It's got a professional touch: no software bloat, no memory leaks
  • Standards-compliant

Why should I NOT use Opera?

  • It's not Free (open-source)
  • It's a Qt app
  • Some pages display badly in Opera (although this is never Opera's fault!)
  • No nifty extensions (only widgets and user javascript)
