Opera - Internet Browsing The Right Way | NewsWatch Review

Published on April 23, 2015

AppWatch Review


     Without web browsers, surfing the internet would simply not be possible. Today, we are focusing on a browser that connects over 350 million people to the Internet. Opera, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, is easily one of the best browsers out there.


     What we love about Opera is three fold. First off, its servers and cloud operations shrink your data while you are surfing the web so you can browse 2 to 5 times more content while using the same amount of data. Next, how often do you search for something and it takes your browser a full minute or two to load the results? Makes you want to bang your head against the wall, right? Opera automatically detects when you need “help” and jumps in to make the browsing experience faster. You will be hard pressed to find another browser out there that actively finds solutions to slow internet speeds. Finally, Opera even offers security and anonymity while surfing the web through its proprietary VPN technology called SurfEasy by Opera.


     You may not know this, but these features are not just in Opera’s web browser, but also integrated throughout the company’s mobile apps. Features like these are arguably more important when incorporated with a mobile platform. You are more likely to run into connection issues when on a mobile device than when at home on a trustworthy network. There is Opera Max, available on Android, which shrinks videos and photos on almost any app on your phone so you can extend your data plan up to 50% for free. Then there is Opera Mini, on iOS and Android, which reduces loading times and saves users money by compressing pictures, text and videos. It is safe to say Opera is always innovating and advancing their software, apps and products, so it only gets better from here.
