Opera

Opera Features 

Search directly in address field
By prefixing search terms by the search engine’s shortcut keyword, for example “g” for Google, as in “g Medium-Screen Rendering”, you can perform searches directly from the address field.

Pop-up blocking
Opera lets the user control whether Web sites can use pop-ups. Select to block them all, or let the browser open only pop-ups that you have requested.

Opera Mail
In Opera’s e-mail client, the full text of messages are indexed to allow for speedy searches. There is a built-in spam filter that learns as you add and remove messages. Starting with Opera 7.50, you can use Opera Mail to read RSS newsfeeds. Opera Mail also handles Usenet newsgroups.

Sessions
Opera lets you save a collection of open pages as a session, allowing for retrieval on later start-ups, or in the middle of another session. Opera can also be set up to start with the pages you had open when the browser was last closed.

Multiple Document Interface
Opera is by default a Multiple Document Interface application, displaying multiple pages in the same application window, allowing you to resize and pose pages next to each other. However, Opera can also be made to work as a Single Document Interface application, a tabbed application, or with a combination of the Multiple and Single Document Interface, running multiple instances and windows at the same time.

The Wand password manager
Opera’s password manager, the Wand, remembers your usernames and passwords so you will not have to. Log in manually once and use the Wand for later visits to a password-protected Web site.
