A portable version of the advanced Opera web browser.

Opera Portable is the version of Opera Web Browser that can be run without installation, meaning you can place it on a portable storage device and run it without making any changes to the system registry.

As Opera Portable is based on the same base source code as Google Chrome, Opera is a fork of the ever-so-popular Chromium project that has seen speed and stability as its main raison d'?tre. Opera takes these features to the max.

The user interface of Opera Portable is absolutely beautiful. There has obviously been a lot of thought put in to how it looks and feels and although it doesn't stray too far away from what most of its competetors look like, it's well-refined and easy to navigate.

One cool feature that Opera has is the free VPN. This is a particularly useful feature for individuals located in countries that censor Internet web sites such as Facebook and YouTube. It can connect to a free tunneling service in several countries based on the selected region.

In terms of privacy and security, this browser includes all of the main features like "Do Not Track", disabling of predictive text (which connects to online services), sharing bug data with the developer and management of HTTPS/SSL certifications.

Another feature that sets Opera apart from other web browsers is the integration with online messenger services out of the box. This includes Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp.

Developer tools that were made for web developers are included here making it possible to right-click an item or element on a web page and inspect it. The panels are made up of elements, console, sources, network, performance, memory, application and security.

All in all, we highly recommend Opera Portable as an application to stick on a USB drive and carry around.
