Opera

Opera

Opera is a web browser for the Android platform offering a very slick and fast Web surfing experience. It is available in two editions for Android. Opera Mobile web browser offers a premium web experience for rich, interactive content with client-side support for JavaScript, HTML5, Flash, and more.

The other edition, Opera Mini web browser, focuses on saving money on data by transcoding and compressing up to 90% before being downloaded to the device. In this specific version, the browser engine runs on Opera's servers.

Verdict:

Opera for Android is a highly popular web browser with good reason. It is fast at rendering pages as borne out by the SunSpider benchmark, and in real web browsing. It has a spotless interface, features which make it genuinely easier to use, but lacks add-ons.

9/10
