Another year has gone by, what has changed in the browser scene? Have your loyalties changed? Let’s find out!
It may seem ridiculous now, but when I was younger, I forked over a great wad of cash for Opera, a revolutionary web browser from Norway. I took it home, excited at finally being able to ditch the slow, clunky web browser that was bundled with my ISP. I remember thinking how amazing it was and how it would dominate the web browsing world. Years have passed. Firefox and Google Chrome have burst onto the scene and Opera’s luster has dulled somewhat. Opera is fighting back though, with a radical overhaul. But is it any good?
While there are many browsers on the Google Play Store, only a few provide an overall great experience.
Opera Next 15 Beta is here, providing sneak peek into the next stable version of the browser. Opera 15′s user interface has been slimmed down with an Omnibox-like bar on top for typing in Web addresses and search. Opera has turned a corner and dropped its age-old Presto Web page rendering engine and has gone for WebKit, the engine used by Safari and Google Chrome.
