Opera Portable, opens up the web to the world!
"Surprisingly, Opera [version 22] performed the best in the Octane 2.0 test, which measures how your browser will preform under the stress of games or highly interactive webpages." —Brandon Widder, (November 25, 2014)
"Off-Road mode [previously called Turbo Mode] speeds up slow connections and reduces bandwidth." —Michael Muchmore, (date)
"One step away from MALWARE" —tuliphead (a user), (March 20, 2015)
