    Opera is one of the browsers that I use in Linux as an alternative to Firefox, due to its integration and functionality. In this one, I don't need to install an ad blocker, it has it integrated, or an extension to fix the zoom.

    In my opinion, the performance is better than in my other browser and I get rid of a very annoying problem: For some reason, in Firefox, when I click on a tab I end up with it detached from the window, creating another window, which breaks the work flow. It happens to me a lot and it is very very irritating.

    On Android, Opera Touch is a marvel, it is the only browser that has motivated me to use tab syncing with Mi Flow.
