Comments from those who selected it as one of their Top 10 Tools 

“The fastest, most secure and most standards compliant browser available. Opera has been the forerunner in creating innovative features for a long. Who doesn’t use tabbed browsing nowadays? My favorite features are the search aliasses that I can create: “g xxx” does a Google search for xxx whereas “z xxx” and “w xxx” search in Amazon and Wikipedia respectively. The built-in Bittorrent client is easy to use and does the job. This is the only piece of software in this list that isn’t free.” Hans de Zwart

“Opera mini – lets me surf the net quickly and easily”  Michelle Gallen
