  • Fast rendering of pages. Opera is the fastest full-featured browser on the market today.
  • Easy keyboard navigation. Opera's easy keyboard shortcuts save time as well as benefit people with disabilities.
  • Instant toggling of image and documents settings. For even faster browsing, images can be turned on/off with just the press of a key.
  • Multiple windows support. Inside Opera, users may browse in several windows at once, without straining system resources.
  • Zooming. Opera users can zoom in on a page up to 1000 percent, be it text or images.
  • Resume download. In the transfer window, downloads can be resumed if interrupted. Small size. Opera is only a 2 MB download so updating to the latest version available is always fast and easy.
