This is the portable edition of Opera, a fast, feature-rich and highly customizable web browser designed for beginner and advanced users alike. It competes with top products such as Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome.

Since installation is not a prerequisite, you can extract the program files to any location on the hard disk and directly run the executable. There is also the possibility to save Opera Portable to a USB flash drive or similar device, in order to run it on any machine effortlessly.

An important factor to keep in mind is that the web browser does not add new entries to the Windows Registry, Start menu, or any other part of the hard disk.

Its clean and intuitive interface supports multi-tabbed browsing and Speed Dial, a proprietary feature that enables users to quickly access frequent visited web sites, by organizing addresses into a custom-sized grid of arrangeable thumbnails on a preferred background image. They can be accessed through keyboard shortcuts as well.

With the help of Opera Link, users can synchronize their Speed Dial and bookmarks across multiple devices, such as smartphones, tablets or other computers, and they only need an online account to do so.

Other features of Opera Portable include download, mail account, note and extension managers, content blocker (e.g. images, animations), mouse gestures, together with customization options for themes, panels, toolbars and buttons.

The web browser has a very good page loading speed and it uses normal amounts of CPU and RAM. It passed our stability tests with flying colors, as we haven't come across any issues. All in all, Opera Portable proves to be more reliable than ever, and it has certainly come a long way over the years.
