The new Opera version 10.5  is lightning fast with fun features.

As we’ve said before, when it comes to web browsers, the more the merrier. We’ve tried them all: Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari and Chrome and each has different strengths.

There are too many new Opera features to go into here,but one of the neatest things about Opera is “Opera Unite,” a way of sharing photos, music and videos on your computer without having to attach them in an email. You get a special link to share, which can be password protected.

When you install Opera, you get a left-hand panel on the side of the browser window with a series of icons. Some are pre-installed and there are  hundreds more you can add. Clicking on “Notes” opens up a note-taking area.  Click on  “the fridge” for your reminders. There’s also an icon for “contacts,” “bookmarks,” and “history,” showing  where you’ve been on the web recently.
