I have tried all other browsers and Opera is in my opinion the best one. It is fast and easy to customize.

Opera web browser has been around since 1994 and gets its roots from a Norwegian telecommunications company before forming its own company Opera Software ASA in 1995. What can I say about this browser? More like , What can I not say. This latest Opera build is sleek and stylish with well thought out design and function. Kick on the dark theme and suddenly slickness and style become sophisticated. There are a ton of bells and whistles including FREE VPN with no data limit, free ad block, duck duck go default search engine doesn't log your searches, turbo mode when not using the VPN, start screen called Speed Dial has your most frequented sites at the ready. Also stunning "live" wallpaper for the speed dial screen. Free screen shot capture. A side bar that's transparent and out of the way containing quick access to messenger, what's ap, bookmarks, my flow, settings and more. All easily customizable from the settings menu. I love it. It's safe, reliable, offers tons more options and is pleasing to the eye. These are just a few of the things you get with Opera. You ought to try it and judge for yourself. They don't track you, what do you have to lose?

Opera has a built in VPN service which is free. I find it very useful and am very satisfied with their browser.

Opera is a solid and fast browser. I can install most chrome extensions with the Opera extension "Download Chrome Extension", sync my settings with Opera Account, the Speed Dial is awesome and can be customized, it works on Windows, Mac, Linux and there are mobile versions for Android and iOS as well. The News section is an easy way to access my favorite news sites. It's an awesome browser without the bloat of Firefox and Chrome and works way better than Edge and the old IE.

What I find especially valuable is the built-in adblocker and the VPN with server locations spread across the globe and the tab preview looks awesome.

It's an exceptional, very user-friendly with lots of functions, features and settings. It's one of the best alternative broswers and that's not an alternative fact ;)

Tip for consumers: Enable Developer Mode to get additional tools like Task Manager and to check what Plug-Ins are installed

This review is specifically for the opera browser - not the other portions of the site.

I use opera. It has built in ad-blocking which seems to frustrate some sites (which I love). Some sites even beg me to allow their ads through. No. I hate ads.

Opera does everything I need it to as a web browser. For me it is better than Chrome or Firefox.

I'm not sure what's going on with the other reviews. It's starting to make me doubt SJ's legitimacy. Why are they all the exact same review?

REASONS TO USE
[1] Ad blocking
[2] Provides features you've come to expect in a browser
[3] Free

REASONS TO LOSE
[1] You like lots and lots of extensions and extra things added in. Lots of quirky little extensions aren't currently made for Opera to include SiteJabber's extension. That's unfortunate.

Question:
Answer:

There are several ways to troubleshoot this, first the obvious, is Speed Dial enabled (this may sound stupid but it happens that this functions disables itself due to an update yet it's very rare but possible) http://www.wikihow.com/Enable-Speed-Dial-in-Opera Hardware Acceleration issue: >>Go to "Edit" -> "Preferences" -> "Browser". >>Scroll down to "Advanced settings" and check "Show advanced settings". >>A "System" section will show up. Uncheck "Use hardware acceleration when available". >>Restart Opera Malwarebytes user? Try disabling Anti-Exploit protection for Opera and restart browser Backup your bookmarks, passwords, extensions (in case you don't use Opera account to sync your settings) and Uninstall and Reinstall. Good Luck!
