The so-called browser war is not a browser war: Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox are undisputedly dominant, with versions for all major platforms and the largest market share.
However, Opera is also a development to consider. This browser has its origins in Norway and has come a long way since its first version: it appeared in 1995 and since then, it has been adapted and adjusted to the different changes that the web has undergone.
The smartphone version of one of the best web browsers
The Android version of Opera offers the features and functions that have made it year after year an excellent tool used by millions of Internet users. Not surprisingly, some of its features have been imitated by Google and Mozilla browsers.
Opera is a fast and secure browser for your Android device and includes a news feed and an integrated ad blocker VPN.
The browsing experience is much richer than simply visiting web pages. Just take a look at the most important functions and features:
- Use Opera VPN during browsing to improve the security and privacy of the user by replacing the IP address with a virtual one.
- Its ad-blocking is effective and helps to achieve faster web loading.
- Barcode and QR code reader integrated into the browser search bar.
- Users can create a personalized news channel with the topics that interest them most to be always correctly informed.
- Allows files, images, and links to be shared between the different devices on which the user uses Opera through its Flow function.
- Fills out forms automatically, protects payment card data, and manages all user passwords.
- Private browsing tabs allow you to visit websites without leaving a trace.
- Includes a download manager to provide a fast and easy file download process.
- Its night mode lets you adjust the light and colors of the navigator to read comfortably in all situations by adjusting the brightness.
