      Category: Browsing

      Opera is one of the oldest browsers around. It's also made its way into all sorts of consumer electronics, including mobile phones, gaming portables, and even home video game consoles. Opera has combined many technological services into its desktop Web browser and is commonly regarded as the first to implement tabs for viewing multiple Web pages in the same window.

      Interestingly enough, Opera has also built-in a BitTorrent client. Users who want to partake in the peer-to-peer file sharing technology can do so while continuing their other browsing habits.

      One of Opera's latest offerings is called Speed Dial. It gives users the chance to list as many as nine of their favorite sites, which show up as preview thumbnails on their browser's start page. Clicking them goes right to the site. It's essentially a page full of bookmarks, but it's quite pretty.
