Free browser Opera 10

I'm sure Opera 10 is the most powerfull WEB-browser!
Opera was designed to run well even on low-end computers and out of cosideration for computer accessibility for users who may have visual or mobility impairments.

It is possible to control all main functions of the browser using only the keyboard, and the default keyboard shortcuts can be modified. Opera 10 also supports the use of access keys to allow a computer user to immediately jump to a specific part of a web page via the keyboard. Opera was also one of the first browsers to support mouse gestures, allowing patterns of mouse movement to trigger browser actions, such as "back" or "refresh".

A "Fit to Window" feature that relies on technology similar to Opera 10 Mini's Small Screen Rendering (SSR), allowing websites to fit within a smaller screen without the need for horizontal scrolling. This often breaks the layout of a page.

Opera offers true page zooming. Instead of just making the text bigger, this feature expands all page elements, including text, images, videos, and other content such as Macromedia Flash, Java and Scalable Vector Graphics to be increased or decreased in size (20% to 1000%) to help those with impaired vision. User stylesheets may also be used to do this and to enable high contrast colored fonts. True page zooming prevents inconsistencies that occur when regular text enlargement forces the content to be bigger than its container.

Starting with Opera 10.50, zooming can be done using multi-touch pinching gestures on supported Mac OS X platforms.
Voice control, co-developed with IBM, allows control of the browser without the use of a keyboard or mouse. It can also read aloud pages and marked text. IBM has a browser based on Opera.

The Opera browser provides several tools to improve usability, simplify navigation, and aid the user in performing tasks relating to internet browsing.

Unlike many other browsers which require extensions, Opera has adblocking built in. Content Blocking can be used to block any image or flash content on the page. To block content, a user must right click on the page, and click "Block Content". It's then possible to simply select the elements you wish to block in future. Users can also control how much they want to block expand the URL's with wildcards and such.

Opera stores its content blocking URL list in a file called urlfilter.ini. Because of this, several internet sites provide a regularly updated urlfilter.ini already loaded with the webs most common advertisements. There are also automatic updater to simplify maintenance of Opera's block list. Opera 10.70 introduces the ability to sync the content blocker list using Opera-Link.

Opera allows the user to list, pause, resume or restart the downloading of files. It also keeps history of recently downloaded files and allows opening them from within the browser. Since Opera 9 introduced a built-in basic BitTorrent client, BitTorrent downloads can be handled within Opera just like regular HTTP/FTP downloads.
Opera can also be used with external download managers.

Hotclick refers to double-clicking any word in a page. Hotclick can be enabled by going to Opera’s Accessibility preferences. It was introduced in Opera version 6. It gives access to all search engines in Opera as defined by search.ini file, as well as giving access to the built-in translation, encyclopedia, and dictionary.

In addition to this, the Hotclick menu also gives access to the 'copy text', 'copy to note' (Opera 7 and later), and 'Send by email' functions. Using Hotclick is the fastest way to search for a word in Opera. Like all other menus, it can be customized in Opera 7 by using a custom menu ini file.

Opera has the option to load a page without graphics, or to use only images in the cache. This is very useful when working with dial up via modems, overloaded servers or slow wireless/cellular connections.

Users have the option of accessing common browsing functions with combinations of mouse movements. This option is similar to using keyboard shortcuts, as it saves time because users do not have to navigate to graphical buttons (thereby avoiding usability problems relating to Fitts' Law). Examples include:
Back - Either pressing the left-mouse button while holding down the right button, or right-clicking anywhere and dragging the mouse towards the left.
Forward - similar and opposite to the "back" gestures
New Tab - holding down the right-click and dragging down.
Scroll Through Tabs - scrolling with the mouse wheel while holding down the right-click (especially useful during sessions where many tabs are open within the same window)
Close Tab - holding down the right-click and making an L-shape movement.
True Zooming - holding down the CTRL key while using the scroll wheel. Rolling up enlarges the page by 10% incremen.
