Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Developed by KDE
Pro Free and Open Source
Pro Modern look
It is a very modern version of Opera. It looks like a desktop app instead of a web browser.
Pro Futuristic interface
Opera Neon innovates with its clean aesthetic pleasing interface.
Con Now under the KDE umbrella
Qupzilla is now discontinued and renamed to Falkon. It will also now be a part of KDE and will probably need more dependencies like kde-frameworks in the future.
Con Weak multimedia support
It has some issues with multimedia content eg. Non-playing videos on webpages.
Con Bookmark management not the strongest part
It often requires quite a lot of clicks to add and remove bookmarks.
Con Nobody uses it
Con Owned by Chinese Consortium
Pretends to be a Norwegian company, but is actually a Chinese company. Opera does not respect user privacy and is not trustworthy!
Con Not meant for general use
This browser is not meant for general use. It only exists, because the Opera developers had some ideas for the user-interface, and wanted their users' feedback. If you want a browser that you can use day-to-day, something with bookmarks and security updates, look elsewhere.
Con Bad UX
The usability is not the best since the left and right bar take up space and there is no way to resize them.
Con Never updated
The Opera folks came out with a browser as an experiment - and then they essentially abandoned it. It really was great, but since they never planned to support/update it and it's closed-source, it's not recommended.
Con No Adblock
There is no Adblocker like in the original Opera.
Con No extension support
Due to the way the browser is built, it does not support Chrome extensions even though it is Chromium based. Opera extensions are not supported either.
