20.0.1132.17 Beta (May 25, 2012)
Excellent browser which simply works, unlike the mess that they keep making with Opera.
It is both light and easy on resources along with some useful extensions.
I tend to prefer to keep to the beta channel as there are less potential issues than found with the dev one.
Google sync works great with my backups.
12.00.1387 RC (Apr 26, 2012)
I have used the build noted here and the actual beta which has just been released by Opera. I can only echo what has been written below my comment.
Also I am not sure just how much the desktop team listen the the feedback when it is noted at just how many crashes and issues the browser has whilst in Alpha stage. They continue to develop and innovate (silly camera thing) whilst very very basic bugs and crashes or rendering issues just seem to get completely ignored.
I am amazed at how long Opera have been in business of developing this browser and yet it still has some very big major issues to do with simply using it.
Just go and read the comments posted about how useable this browser is before giving it a go.
4.1.1 (Oct 11, 2011)
Continues to work well with the drives that I have got. Helped also in showing a retailer, along with other diagnostic software, of the problems I was having with a Samsung HD and thus got refunded.
A useful part of a tool-kit which compliments others and can be invaluable if you think that you are having HD issues.
2.0.6 Beta 4 (Oct 6, 2011)
Alas this application used to be a must have one for me when it was in the 1.xx versions. Like others have noted this now has gotten way too bloated and slow for it to be of value.
Instead I use the Malwarebytes offering which seems far more responsive and useful.
3.1.0 (Oct 6, 2011)
As usual these codecs do what they say on the tin. They are well supported and updated often. Whether you would need a codec pack is up to you and your use but if you do then these tick the box.
3.1.0 (Feb 14, 2010 - 9:00 AM)
I have enjoyed using Opera more and more over the years and yet still find myself drawn back to FF, mainly due to the extensions that I use.
I enjoy using the Downloadhelper plugin for Firefox, Screengrab (does a lot more than that), Rehost Image and Webmail notifier. The other plugins that I use I could work around or manage without but those that I have noted are important to me and to have them integrated within my browser.
I wish Opera and their development team every success for the future. Their support forums are very good.
