7.1 Opera Internet Browser

You may access information from the Internet quickly and easily using Opera Portable Internet Browser.

Opera Internet Browser

Here are some features in Opera Internet Browser:

  • When you start a new browser session, you may choose to restore the settings and tabs from the last session. This option is useful if you accidentally closed the browser.
  • Turn on Private Browsing mode and you will not leave any traces of your activities on your computer. When you visit a web page, a text string is sent to identify such things as the application name, version, host operating system, and language. With Private Browsing, even this text string is masked.
  • Supports SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) for secure communications on Internet web sites.
  • Supports configuration of POP3 & IMAP mail accounts to receive emails, and SMTP accounts to send emails
  • Supports configuration of Newsgroups & Chat (IRC) accounts.
