There was a time when there was no Firefox and no Internet Explorer, but Opera was serving. But it is not the oldest graphical web client. There were some like Mosaic. The difference is it is the only oldest graphical web client which is still kicking around.

It is also one of the most useful and powerful, with browsers on the Wii and Nintendo DS coming with best versions for cell phones. The Norwegians at Opera Software have been very hard working till producing Opera 9.64 and now they come with Opera 10 beta 3.

Now Opera offers Opera 10 beta 3 on their site; download it and see what the difference is? Opera on its official websites claims for bringing in many big improvements in beta 3. I discussed almost all here.

Tab tweaks: Majority of Opera users urged the need for some more visual tab options which were lacking in earlier beta versions. So, Opera responds in its beta 3 version by putting tab placement options. Now user view his visual thumbnail tabs on the right or left side of the browser screen with placement options still there on top or bottom. You can resize your Visual Tabs. Thumbnail view is optional.

Renovated User Interface: Designer Jon Hicks always renovated user interface (UI) of Opera and this time he did it by implementing many new tweaks allowing users to run opera more efficiently.

Multilingual: Beta 3 comes with big total of 38 languages. Opera’s beta 3 efforts to design it in more easier form so that users around the world can feel more at home when online.

Crash Prevention: You are riding on a rock-solid browser with Opera’s integrated crash logger.

Turbo Speed: Opera Turbo is more refined. You will be amazed by its increased speed while browsing over your slow network connection.

I hope you will download Opera 10 beta 3 today and tell me how it works

People often overlook Opera in favor of Firefox or Chrome, but it really is quite prolific and worth using it.

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


Everyone seems concerned about his Privacy and Security while browsing web, but not everyone knows how to stay secure and how to make things private. Many of you will already be using some software or different kind of tools to maintain their security, but here is a list of free add-on which are available to be used with Firefox. You may install and download them if they suits your needs. Sorry to users of IE, Safari and other web-browsers and I can not spend my time surfing for add-ons working on those browsers as well.

Stealther

If you want to browse in a private mode, then you should go for Stealther. You will be provided an environment to browse the web which can note be traced. It temporary disables the following:

  • Browsing History (also in Address bar)
  • Cookies
  • Downloaded Files History
  • Disk Cache
  • Saved Form Information
  • Sending of ReferrerHeader
  • Recently Closed Tabs list

There are some other extensions available for Firefox which also let you browse securely but none of them is as good as Stealther. This is what is claimed by Stealther.

The add-on is affective on version 1.0 to 3.o of Firefox.You may download it from here

Close ‘n’ Forget

As the name suggests, just close the current tab and forget what you were browsing. Related cookies will also be closed as well as the full domain is also cleared. To clear the domain, configuration is required.

The add-on is effective for Firefox 2.0 and higher versions. You may download it from here

WOT

If you are looking for a shield which can warn you from risky websites which are scamming their visitors, or spending spam or delivering malware then you must give WOT (Web Of Trust) a try. WOT works as a front-line layer preventing your computer against online threats. WOT has color-coded icons which show you ratings of the websites. Just like a traffic signal, WOT is composed of three colors, each giving you a special meaning for a website. Lets understand what each color means for WOT:

  • Red: to stop
  • Yellow: caution
  • Green: to go; website is safe

WOT also lets you sets a protection level for children by blocking inappropriate content.

WOT works with Firefox 1.5 and above versions. You may download WOT from here.

Best Of Free Web Browsers – Download Now

Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) is a competent browser with enough features to meet the needs of most users but is difficult to recommend due to on-going security concerns. In the past IE has been a focus for security attacks and there is little to suggest this will change with the release of IE7. Additionally, Microsoft have a poor track record for speedily fixing IE defects and this has left users open to drive-by attacks and other forms of zero-day exploits.

There are several excellent alternatives with the new Mozilla Firefox V2 [1] a solid first choice. It’s safer than IE, so safe in fact that many users have reported no spyware infections since they started using the product. It’s also browses a tad faster than IE, is very stable and is more standards compliant. The program loads slower than IE but once running, it positively zips along. With tabbed browsing and over 2000 free extensions (add-ons) that allow you to customize your experience, it provides most users with a major surfing upgrade. Firefox is now my everyday browser though I still leave IE on my PC for the occasional web site that’s designed around IE’s non-standard features.
