After a recommendation from a colleague last week, I’ve been using Opera instead of internet explorer recently. I’ve got to say that I’m very impressed with it. Admittedly it took a bit of getting used to, as with most software, but am quite pleased with the result.

The feature that I’ve found most useful is the context menu option “open in background page”. This lets you right click on a link and does a similar thing to the “open in new window” link in IE. The difference is that the page opens as a tab and is not brought to the foremost page. This completely changes the way that I browse websites now, because I no longer suffer from getting lost in tangential links whilst in the middle of an article. The tabs are constantly visible at the bottom of the browser so you never forget about them, and you can visit them whenever is convenient (e.g. when you’ve finished reading that article). Really simple, but REALLY useful. I love it simple ideas work really well.
