Opera has become my default browser after finally giving up on Firefox and testing Google Chrome for about an hour before uninstalling it. The only real concern is the attempted UDP connection each time my bank account password is entered. This possibly nefarious attempt to connect to the Internet is causing me to consider changing to a different browser, possibly Vivaldi. The problem is that using an even less supported browser may cause additional web sites to be non-operational, which is already somewhat of a problem with Opera.

Opera is complete after adding extensions V7 Bookmarks and History, a pdf file viewer and a few others.

ADDENDUM: I have just tested Vivaldi. It is not a replacement for Opera; It isn't even in the same ball game. This is not a review of Vivaldi, only a statement of my opinion when compared to Opera.

Pros: Hello Vivaldi, the browser created by the original creators of Opera, which the 'company' Opera sold to the Chinese government, which wrests American technology from unscrupulous tech companies by forcing the transfer of proprietary technology in mandatory joint ventures.

Anyhoo, Vivaldi is great. Unbloated yet mui customizable, handles all of the latest protocols.

Cons: No cons.

Bottom Line: Hello, Vivaldi. Goodbye, Opera.

Pros: Brilliant, gave up on Chrome after it looks at what software you run & then the latest addition to demand you remove software that MAY affect it - Very surprised how good Opera is, I used it in the beginning when it was donation ware but the latest is quite brilliant - I just about always use a decent
VPN but the Opera one aint bad at all.

Cons: None that I can find.

Bottom Line: Brilliant browser, way in front if Firefox & as good if not better than Chrome Love it.

Pros: Opera is a fast browser with built-in add blocking. It uses the Chrome engine and extensions without having to be associated with Google. Opera satisfies my browsing needs without the annoyances of Firefox and Internet Explorer.

Cons: Opera.exe tries to make an outgoing UDP connection each time I start to enter a bank account password, which is disturbing. I am unable to find information explaining the need for this Internet connection. Opera is functional with that UDP request blocked.

It would be good to have a built-in 'check for updates' setting. It can be disabled when manually starting by adding the '--disable-update' parameter and also removed from the Task Scheduler, but cannot be avoided when started by a link in another program, such as an email client.

There are a few web sites that don't function with Opera, therefore necessitating the occasional use of Firefox or Internet Explorer.

Bottom Line: Opera has become my default browser after finally giving up on Firefox and testing Google Chrome for about an hour before uninstalling it. The only real concern is the attempted UDP connection each time my bank account password is entered. This possibly nefarious attempt to connect to the Internet is causing me to consider changing to a different browser, possibly Vivaldi. The problem is that using an even less supported browser may cause additional web sites to be non-operational, which is already somewhat of a problem with Opera.

I really like this browser. Pros: Long history of solid, consistent development, yet low market share means lower susceptibility to exploitation by hackers; light-weight, customizable, built-in vpn, ad-blocker.Everything works. Con: momentary delay on exit (not sure why).
