Opera 10 Features

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

In addition to popular browsing software like Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, Opera has its own loyal users worldwide and has proven to be an efficient tool for surfing the net, browsing pages online and taking a deeper look into cyber-space. The latest release of the program which is version 10 arrived recently and you might want to check it out.

To download the latest release of the software or upgrade your existing application, please visit

After visiting the link above, simply begin downloading the Opera software to your hard drive. Then double-click on the file and select from among two options of either installing a fresh copy of the program or upgrading if you’re already an Opera user.


The latest version of Opera browser has a sleek design, accompanied by lots of features and many tools to explore. It loads and runs faster than previous versions of the software and could be an excellent option for the folks using slow Internet connections. The standard features like tabbed browsing, or drag-and-drop functionalities have remained the same as before.

The recent innovative feature presented in the Opera 10 is the introduction of optional thumbnails for the tabs opened. This feature is really excellent because you can constantly have some thumbnails displayed as visual styles or presentations of the web pages at the top of your web browser without moving your mouse pointer over the links.

Assume for instance that while browsing the web you have opened some tabs and then when you point your mouse tip over one of the tabs, a small pop-up window would load displaying the thumbnail view of that website.


Now, the better news is that when you drag the bottom of the tab bar downwards, Opera will display a dynamically created and fixed set of the opened websites and the tabbed pages.


The search bar defaults to the Google search engine and you can find it conveniently on the top right corner of the software and by clicking on the drop down menu. You can choose other portals as well.


In order to add more options and search engines to the list, simply click Tools from the top menu and then choose Preferences, you can also alternatively use the keyboard shortcut F12 for this purpose and then from the Preferences panel hit the Search tab which manages the search engines.


By pressing the Add button, a small window will load allowing you to add extra search engines to Opera. It’s as simple as entering the names and web addresses of the search portals and then saving the job. Selection of your favorite search engine is also to accomplished via this panel.


Opera has proven to be an innovative web browser and has successfully passed a battery of tests over the net. With version 10, it will be known as a very fast application among the developers and web surfers alike. If you haven’t tried it yet, perhaps this is the right time!
