Faster browsing on slow networks with Off-Road mode

Off-Road mode saves bandwidth and compresses data while you browse. It will speed up your browsing experience on slow network connections.

To enable Off Road mode, select 'Off-Road mode' from the main menu.

Command the browser with your mouse

Opera's mouse gestures let you perform common browsing actions with quick, small mouse movements.

These gestures are enabled by default. To disable mouse gestures:

  1. Select Opera > Preferences…
  2. Click 'Browser' in the sidebar.
  3. Under 'Shortcuts', tick the 'Enable mouse gestures' checkbox.

Mouse gestures work by holding the right mouse button, moving the mouse a certain direction, then letting go of the button. With practice, navigating with the mouse can become fast and efficient.
