Built-in Speed Dial and a

utomatic web page compression in Off-Road mode for faster browsing speeds

One more significant and important feature of Opera, the Off-Road mode, has been created to improve browsing speeds exponentially by automatically compressing web pages when your connection to the Internet is too slow to use the regular approach to web browsing.

What's more, its Speed Dial feature, a browser component now present in all popular web browsers, will automatically group your most visited websites on a start page that gets you started with only a couple of mouse clicks once you launch Opera on your Mac.

The Opera Internet browser has been released publicly for the first time in December 1996 and since then it has built-upon its own web browser engine.

Open source WebKit fork engine

Nowadays, the latest version of Opera uses Blink, an open source fork of the WebCore component of WebKit, an web browser engine also used by the Google Chrome and Chromium browsers, among others.
