I like it some, but IT WILL NOT DOWNLOAD ANYTHING! Whether I use the Save As via the top menu or right clicking, or even using the download icon on a page with a pdf file, NOTHING WHATSOEVER HAPPENS! This is an obvious deal breaker until I can, plus the saving bookmarks has no Save or OK or Done button, and iI don't like that it will just put it wherever it feels like until I have to bring it back and do it.

Just thrilled. Have used just about every Mac browser there has ever been, since Navigator and Chimera.... and now, after spending a few weeks with Safari Technology Preview, I am back again to Opera. I love the Beta, knowing I'm getting the most recent innovations. It is equal to, or beats the rest in; loading speed, page rendering accuracy and is more"user friendly, " than any of them. I even find it has the best extensions/add-ons: "ublock origins," "user agent switcher" and "E-mail page," are the ones I rely on.

The browser was sold.... even though the deal was scaled down.

Opera and the Chinese group have instead come up with an alternative deal worth $600 million which strips out some products and services in a bid to overcome regulatory hurdles.

The so-called Kunqi consortium, which includes online and mobile games distributor Beijing Kunlun Tech Co and search and security business Qihoo 360 Technology Co, will now buy certain parts of Opera's consumer business.

It will acquire Opera's mobile phone and desktop computer browser business, its performance and privacy apps division, its technology licensing business, as well as its stake in Chinese joint venture nHorizon.

I have never left Safari. Until now. It's become too slow and buggy. So I tried the other obvious alternatives and even some less well known ones. Only Opera Beta is fast and stable. UI is clean. Page tabs are fixed size (hurrah!). Importing bookmarks, even favorites bar, was easy and intuitive. Important features to add: (1) Easy access to a link to contact Opera! (2) Simplify "Help"! (3) Customizable address + tool bar. (4) Share current webpage button, to email, facebook, etc. (5) Option so that "open new window" forces "open new tab" for clean-screen management.

(6) Needs a "home"page button. (7) Needs a "restore last session" command. (8) Is recording usernames and passwords although "do not" is checked in preferences. This is a deal breaker. FIX IT ASAP!

While not perfect. This version is solid, reliable and containing some nice features with the ability to use plug-ins. Crisp images and speedy rendering of the web; and its free.

Anyone care to comment on why the regular (red) Opera is ahead of the Beta (white) at this point? Is the Beta being discontinued?

Ah so...
The beta of v30 went to regular release (red).

Now, they have released v31 on the beta, so the beta (white), is alive again.

Can somebody tell me in words of one syllable exactly why the world needs another browser and what this one is supposed to do for me that the more established ones can't do?

2nd review.... been using for some weeks now as default browser and am having no issues at all, unlike Aurora which keeps crashing and disabling add-ons.
Opera is speedy and has a wonderful rendering which just seems a bit more colorful and rich than Safari.
Bookmarks, bookmark bar, add blocking, anonymity, all the features I need.... work just fine and Opera is a trusted name. Now that Camino is gone, perhaps the oldest mac browser.
