    "Opera seems to be the most lightweight browser I could find anywhere. It doesn't take up much space on the processor of my old machine so I'm using this more than Safari or Chrome and so far so good!"

      "Google Chrome is arguably the best browser on the net. Everyone has probably used it at some point. It's clean, easy to use, and doesn't hog internet resources. Give it a try!"

      "Opera browser for Android sounded interesting. It did not have a super high rating, but the idea of having access to Opera on my Samsung phone was tempting and being a news junkie convinced me to give it a try. It was easy to set up and for a while I was willing to tolerate the ads. But after a couple of weeks the ads just became too much and I realized news junkie or not I really did not need to be overwhelmed with all that Opera had to offer. I still have it on my phone but rarely use it now. It is no reflection of the power and quality of Opera, it is simply more than I need."

While it feels fast, it also seems it's missing a lot of features that you would expect. I heard it was a recent update that practically gutted this app. Can't say I'll be sticking with it sadly."

It also uses a lot of Ram and then woop, there goes your battery life. The full screen ads though,need to go. There is prompt feedback for any problems, which is a plus."
